Family Studio: Spooky Silhouettes

Make art side-by-side as a family, explore a new medium each week and create a beautiful project together. Learn to paint dramatic sunset backgrounds using liquid watercolor paints and incorporate silhouettes of your favorite autumn/Halloween items (such as creaky trees, haunted houses, bats, owls, ghosts, and goblins). Silhouettes will be made using a variety of materials including tempera paint, ink, or construction paper.

About the Instructor

Erin Powell

As a child, art gave me confidence, focus, and motivation in school. I spent my free time playing in the woods, drawing, and taking care of my many pets – which included several cats and even a small flock of sheep. My artwork today is filled with inspiration from these experiences, especially nature and animals.

I enjoy sharing my talents with others; to empower the struggling student, include the exceptional, and inspire anyone with an interest in creating. I have a BFA in Art Education from Virginia Commonwealth University. I previously worked as an elementary art teacher in Charles City County. Following the birth of my 2 lovely daughters, my focus changed to Early Childhood Education. I earned a certificate in Early Childhood Education from John Tyler Community College and am currently a lead teacher at a play-based preschool in Bon Air where my days are filled with art, music, and fun with the 3-4 year olds in my class.
