"Erin is a talented artist and teacher! Her style of teaching is fun and always left me feeling inspired and eager to create more! I highly recommend her to anyone looking for artistic instruction, for finding inspiration to be more creative, or to get help finishing projects you feel stuck on. She is a gem!"
Enjoy making art in a fun and relaxed atmosphere. My home studio, located in the Riley Park neighbourhood, is filled with art supplies and fun objects to inspire. All you need to bring is the desire to learn and have fun!

e-mail me with any questions you may have:
"I participated in Erin's last watercolour party and I can not recommend her as a teacher and an artist more highly! I struggled with drawing and painting on my own and always believed I just wasn't that type of an artist... Her guidance led me to find the expression within me. A week later I bought my own water colors."
I come to you
With art catering you choose the location, the amount of participants and the medium. Just send me an email with your desired date and time, include a short description of the event and I'll get back to you within 24 hours. If you would like to throw a party but are without a location I can help you find the right place.
I also have experience facilitating art activities for corporate and special events. You supply the tables, chairs and water (if needed) and I bring all the art supplies! Tables usually allow up to 12 participants at a time.
Cost for art party
Ages 18+ $20 per. hour per student / 3 students min.
Ages 6 to 18 $20 per. hour per student / 5 children min.
Corporate events / Min. $200 per hour / prices vary depending on attendance
(If traveling out of the Vancouver mainland area an additional $30 fee is charged)

"Erin Green is an exceptional teacher as well as a gifted artist. After instructing my son in art classes, I hired Erin to host a corporate event and it was a huge success! She has amazing skills and knowledge and has an incredible way of connecting with people of all ages. Her students are encouraged to believe that there is an artist inside each of them. Weeks after the event people were still talking about Erin's art table!"

My journey as an art teacher
I have spent the past ten years teaching art to children and adults throughout the Lower Mainland. Working from my own curricula, I currently teach classes through Art's Umbrella, community centres, my home studio, and art catering.
I love connecting with people while helping them feel confident in their abilities! I also love the challenge of creating and designing projects specific to individual learning styles.
Over the years I have taught hundreds of students, ages 3-70 and every one of them has inspired me!
Original Art Classes & Projects
The following are some of the workshops I have designed for students of all ages. These classes can be taught over several sessions or compressed into one.
the Nature of Watercolour- Learn several watercolour techniques while creating beautiful paintings of flowers and trees.
Don't Eat Your Art - Water colour popsicles, collage burgers, and sushi dioramas! This class is all about delicious (and sometimes perfectly disgusting!) looking art. Multi-media is the focus of this fun class.
Space craft - Students make alien landscapes, paint nebulas and planets, and create a Hubble telescope (complete with a vintage Hubble photo) -- all while learning about the cosmos!
Drawing the Tropics - Surrounded by tropical flowers and plants learn the basics of drawing and shading.
Merry Cosmos! - Experiment with watercolour and gauche while creating space inspired greeting cards.
the Science of Drawing - learn my formula for drawing that proves anyone can draw! Using objects associated with astronomy, biology, archeology, geology, botany and chemistry, students learn the basics of contour line drawing, shading and painting in this science inspired program.
