Art Events at Your Location!

News & Notes

Closing Our Casa Linda Location and Becoming a "We Come to Your Location" Art Business

We sent out a letter to our customers about this, so if you didn't get it please let us know and we'll send it to you.  In a nutshell, Kim will be spending more time on her art career and will operate Artistic Gatherings part time as a mobile art business, providing ceramic group events (pottery painting & clay hand-building) as well as private and group drawing lessons.  Parties, auction projects, team-building, friend/family get-togethers, etc. in homes, businesses, schools.  More info to come! 

The last day to paint pottery in our shop is Saturday, June 27th---everything is 50%-75% off.  We will officially close our shop on Tuesday, June 30th.  Our phone number, email, and website will remain the same.  Things have been VERY busy at the studio lately with the sale and moving activity, so we will update our website to reflect the changes as soon as possible.  In the meantime, feel free to call or email Kim at 214-821-8383 / kim@artisticgatherings.com.

PLEASE come pick up your art items by June 30th!!!  We will donate everything that has not been picked up by then.  Thank you!

See you soon!  :)

Handwriting Help for Kids

Private Lessons

Printing & Cursive Tutoring

Private lessons are $60 per hour (or $40 per half hour), with discounts available for multiple sessions.  Lessons are structured using the Handwriting Without Tears© curriculum (HWT©), but with a creative twist.  Children benefit from the addition of multi-media art activities because not only does art make learning more fun, it is very effective at helping with memory retention and letter formation skills.  The art activities are customized to target each child’s specific skill area needs.  Not every lesson will include art, but usually some type of creative process or multi-sensory experience will be incorporated into the session.  When kids feel happy and excited about learning, concepts really sink in…and progress is made!  The standard recommendation is to schedule one or two lessons per week until significant improvements have been made and then taper down to one lesson every 2-4 weeks to make sure students are practicing their new skills consistently.  For younger children, half-hour lessons are usually best, especially after a long day at school.  All handwriting lessons are taught by Kim Worthington, Certified HWT© Handwriting Specialist / Certified All-level Art Teacher / Multi-media Artist.
