ABOUT THE GASLIGHT GALLERY ART STUDIO
Children love to make art. Adults, not so much.
Why is that?
Janealla Killebrew, owner of The Gaslight Gallery Art Studio, firmly believes it is because somewhere along the line, nobody taught most of us how to see correctly so we can put on paper what is actually out there.
With that in mind, she opened the Studio to help adults learn to draw, and to help them have fun making art.
Janealla retired after teaching Art to students in grades K-12 for 38 years. During that time, she also was the Education Chairperson at the Findlay Art League, and taught many classes there. She has given private art lessons for 16 years, and has helped many students win scholarships to art schools.
The Gaslight Gallery Art Studio opened its door in February of 2015. Since that time, there have been classes on Drawing, Painting, Collage, Making Books, Stained Glass, Kites, and Pastels. Children’s classes have also been held, and some Christmas Crafts have happened. Classes are small, so participants get personal attention.
Janealla believes classes should help participants produce high-quality art, and that students should leave with the ability to confidently make their own art. To those who say they have no ability, she says “If you want to learn to pay piano, you take lessons. If you want to learn to dance, you take lessons. If you want to learn to make art, you take lessons.”
Some classes are completed in one sitting, but most are spread over three to six weeks. Most often, all materials are included in the price of the class.
