Everest Academy is a ministry of Everest Family Church in Hayden. We offer freedom along with quality resources, information, activities and support to those homeschooling in Alabama. We believe that the parent has the best interests of their children at heart. We believe that the parent is the first and only teacher that a child needs. In keeping with this philosophy, we wish to be a very hands-off church "cover" school and allow the parent to lead and guide their children in the direction and at the pace they feel is best suited to their children. We ask only for what the law requires while offering support along with quality resources to aid families in their efforts.

Gardendale: Art Classes

Art class 2015-2016

Hi, I’m Melissa Pritchett. I took private art lessons in junior high school, entered college as a visual art major, and have a degree in Interior Design from Auburn University. I began teaching art in 1998 to my homeschooled children and their friends, and I’ve just never quit.

I want the students to learn about, discuss, and create art. So, our classes will include art fundamentals, artist study, critique, drawing, and painting. Along the way, you may find that we incorporate vocabulary, music, relaxation, art history, geography and even math into these lessons! We usually draw the first semester and paint the second semester.

Classes begin mid August and conclude in May. I occasionally teach a mini class in the summer. I offer classes in Adamsville every other Thursday, and in Gardendale every other Friday. The Thursday classes usually meet at 2:00 and 3:00. The Friday classes are usually at 12:30 and 1:30. Class tuition will be $110, and is due at the beginning of each semester.

Interested students should send me their name, age, and contact information, and I will send you the class schedule and a supply list! I’d like to limit the classes to about 6 or 8 students, a younger class (k-6) and an older class (7-12 and adults). Parents are welcome! You can email me at: Cor13v3@gmail.com.

Looking forward to meeting you,
