Art Class

Tuesdays 5-8 PM (Free Meal Provided!)

Find your inner artist

Draw, paint, build or design.  Whatever your style or interest, Coastal Connections provides a relaxed environment to have fun and express yourself. We provide the home cooked meal, art supplies and friendly faces, all you need to bring is you!

If you would like to improve your technique, Erica is here to encourage and mentor.  Don’t think you’re artistic?  Don’t worry, we’re not here to judge and who knows, you might just be better than you think!

Erica Moore

“Art is more powerful than any drug. New scientific research proves that making things with our hands increases our brain’s serotonin levels. I have known this since middle school when learning how to bead on a loom cured my depression!

Making art makes us happy.  Making art satisfies unfulfilled desires.  Making art can save the planet because it reconnects us disconnected humans with our creative power.  Creatively empowered people do not destroy, but make everything more beautiful!

I started teaching art in 1999 after receiving my bachelor’s degree in Studio Art from Chico State and the Academy of Fine Arts in Florence, Italy.  I also hold a teaching credential in Art from Humboldt State.  I LOVE working with young people and every day I see the power of art to transform my own life and the lives of my students.  “
