PRIVATE INSTRUCTION At Heirloom Art Studio or Your Location
1. Instruction is available any time during the day or week according to both teacher and student schedules.
2. All instruction is geared to the individual needs of the student. He/she determines what subjects and media they would like to be taught.
3. Class time is ordered on a "contract basis".
Example: If the student knows nothing about drawing and feels an 8 session class (once a week or compacted into four days) would best suit their needs, that is what is purchased. However, suppose the student is already an artist, but feels a session in perspective would be beneficial; one hour of instruction is all that may need to be purchased to learn this specific subject. Contract time is entirely up to individual student needs.
4. All instruction is prepaid IN FULL prior to the beginning of any class or long term contract.
5. This instruction is private and taught with one-on-one attention, however up to three students may contract classes together providing the subject matter taught during the sessions is the same to all students. There are no discounts if students take instruction together.

$45.00 per hour

With the advent of technology, it is now possible to offer consultation and education via email and the internet. Any student wishing to have their fine art critiqued, seeks advice or would like to learn long distance should contact the Studio to discuss their needs, methods and fees.

Heirloom Art Studio is currently in the process of developing a number of CD and Downloadable art, digital and genealogy educational lessons that will bring Kathryn Rutherford's knowledge and skills directly to your home computer.
Currently in progress is the development of a series of fine art, conservation, restoration, digital and genealogical lessons that you may choose to purchase for your individual learning. Areas of interest will be broken down into single subjects and offered for sale either by CD/DVD, hard copy, or internet download. More information about this offering will be posted as soon as information is available.

Her knowledge of art along with the ability to work wonders with original photography is outstanding. Kathryn is someone you should definitely contact!!
