Everyone is an artist!

Beyond the Stick Figure is a 36 week art curriculum built for busy moms like you! It is packed with weekly technique lessons, daily practice lessons, short targeted exercises, and heaps of fun. Students will compile over 20 unique projects over the five units: drawing, pen and ink, watercolor, acrylic, and 3D sculpture design. This course is geared toward kids 5-95, with easy to follow instructions and differentiated projects. It is the perfect way to introduce your entire family to the world of art.

Unlike most of the art programs out there, Beyond the Stick Figure is not just a collection of projects, but a course in art techniques. These core techniques will give your child the confidence and ability to independently create masterpieces. With built in practice sessions, children will be encouraged to practice and improve their skills.

Beyond the Stick Figure provides five days of instructions each week for a year full of art!

"I love to see what my girls bring home and they get excited to tell me about the techniques they used. My girls have always loved to draw and imagine, but Mrs. Stansfield's art class has enhanced their skills, introduced them to a variety of media, and expanded the scope of their creativity."

Emily, homeschool mom of 3

"Art class is outstanding and Mrs. Stansfield is a wonderful teacher! She knows what she is doing!"

Mila, age 10

"Mrs. Stansfield is a good art teacher and a good artist, and she's really fun!"

Orli, age 7

"My children aged 5-16, love taking Sally's art classes. Since my children have been enrolled, they have accumulated art supplies similar to the ones used in their art classes. They cannot wait to get home to apply the techniques learned in class and ask to paint and sculpt all the time. They often make gifts for others using the knowledge and skills they have learned"

Penny, homeschool mom of 6

Sally Stansfield
Sally Stansfield

Sally is a native of England. She came here in her early 20’s, got married and had eight kids that she homeschools. She is a trained artist that has become passionate about passing on her skills. At the age of ten, she knew that she wanted to be an artist and thought that is was a career for people that had a “gift”. She followed her dream and attended Loughborough College of Art and Design in England where she obtained her degree in art.

As a homeschool mum, she realized that art is not just for the gifted, but can be taught incrementally like any subject. She saw first hand how traditional teaching methods for this subject can be detrimental. Now, she wants to share her passion with children young and old to ignite their own love of creating art.
