In Art Club, kids will learn techniques like dot painting (pointillism).

Do you have a little artist, grade 1-4, stuck at home and in need of inspiration? Art Club is your answer! Capitol Teachers, a tutoring company on the Hill, is offering a virtual Art Club and a variety of additional learning opportunities for students from kindergarten to grade 12.

In Art Club, students will explore different mediums and modalities of art while learning about artists such as Seurat, O’Keefe, Van Gogh and Cezanne. They will be guided through art projects by Kendra Lerner, an experienced second-grade teacher from Jefferson Houston IB School in Alexandria. Kids will need watercolors and colored pencils. The class, which will be held at 3 p.m. on Tuesdays and runs six weeks, starts next week on April 14, so sign up now.

Maybe art is not your kid’s thing. Do they like creative writing or world travel? Capitol Teachers has a couple more classes starting next week:

  • In “Creative Writing Class: Fairy Tales and Short Stories,” students in grades 2-5 will tap into their creativity as they learn effective strategies in story-telling. The class is held Thursdays at 4 p.m. starting April 16.
  • In “All Around the World Class,” students in grades 3-5 will research various countries and cultures around the world. They will also learn how to work with PowerPoint. The class is held Tuesdays at 4 p.m. starting April 14.

Both the creative writing and world studies classes will be led by Olivia Franklin, a second-grade teacher at Hyde-Addison Elementary who previously taught English in Vietnam through the Fulbright U.S. Student Program.

Capitol Teachers is a new tutoring company started by local teachers Liz Kraemer and JoAnn Hill. They originally planned to start the venture at the end of this school year, but when school was canceled due to the global pandemic, they rallied to help support families with distance learning.

In addition to the virtual classes, Capitol Teachers offers tutoring services, enrichment opportunities and homeschooling support. All instructors are talented, experienced teachers. Its instruction is data-driven and tailored to your student’s unique needs. If you are struggling with managing your “home school,” get in touch with them. Learn more at
