Artist: Artist and illustrator Helen Durney (?-1970) is best known for her illustrations of Harold and Helen (Aberson) Pearl's story "Dumbo the Flying Elephant." Sold to the Walt Disney Corporation in 1939, the story was first published by the Roll-A-Book Company of Syracuse, New York. Ms. Durney had worked for the Knopf Publishing Company in New York City for several years; at the time of the "Dumbo" illustrations she was employed by the Museum of Fine Art on James Street in Syracuse.

Like many artists of the 1930s, Durney also participated in government-funded art projects instituted during the Depression; under the auspices of the Public Works of Art Project (PWAP) she painted two murals for the cafeteria of Percy Hughes School on Jamesville Avenue in Syracuse, showing figures with costumes of Holland and Italy. Her work is in several museums, among them the Delaware Art Museum.

Emmylou’s background:

Emmylou is a professional artist who has been coaching art to children and adults for over 16 years on how to create their own masterpieces by introducing them to the influences and techniques of famous artists and incorporating these methods in their own work.

Throughout courses, depending on the project, each student will explore the potential of different materials such as charcoal, pastel, paint, watercolour and many more. Emmylou is fully insured, first aided and DBS checked.

What the children gain

The students will use all the materials adults use with careful attention as to not supply them with toxic materials. They may learn where charcoal comes from and where chalk started out from its raw form into a pastel.

The children explore ideas and express themselves, channelling their energies and calming their minds by going back to the basics and they get to take their masterpiece home same day!

I look forward to teaching your child!
