Caregiver & Me Floral Paintings


Amanda Russo

Amanda Russo has shared her passion for creativity, discovery, self-expression, and risk-taking as the grade K-6 art teacher at Lapel Elementary and Middle School for the past 17 years. She earned a Bachelor's degree in Visual Art Education from Ball State University, where she honed in on her passion for drawing, painting, and printmaking. She also earned a Master's Degree in Art Education from Eastern Illinois University, focusing her research on therapeutic art-making practices.

Amanda is a juried member of the HCAA and has recently found more time and inspiration for creating her own artwork. At this point in her artistic journey, she is interested in portraying the human face, figure, and the spaces they occupy with nods to the Impressionism and Art Nouveau art movements. With her experience using a variety of two-dimensional art media, she finds herself moving from oil, to gouache, to charcoal and pastel frequently.

About the Class

Saturday, August 17th, 2-4pm, embark on a journey of artistic exploration with your elementary school-aged child! Join Amanda and her 6-year-old daughter, Violet, as they guide you through an immersive Caregiver & Me painting class. Together, you'll dive into the world of Impressionist painters, drawing inspiration from nature's beauty to create stunning floral masterpieces.

With kid-friendly paints and paper at your fingertips, you and your little one will unleash your creativity side by side. As brushes dance across the canvas, bonds will strengthen, laughter will fill the air, and memories will bloom like the flowers you paint.

At the end of the session, each participant will proudly carry home their own unique creation, a symbol of the magical moments shared together. Don't miss this chance to spark joy, ignite imagination, and cherish the art of togetherness!
