Free Art Friday is a blog that teaches art lessons to make your weekends more fun. Each Friday, a new lesson will be published. You or your child can learn the lesson and do the art project together.

Art is fun! It is free, it brings people together and makes you feel great!

Free Art Friday has art lessons for all ages and interests, from young children to adults. There are no requirements other than to have fun!

Free Art Friday will be published every Friday until further notice.

Free Art Friday is a project that provides an art lesson for you or your child to do together every Friday. All the art projects are simple and can be done with items that most everyone can find around the house (or yard).

Tutorials are presented in video form, as well as written tutorials with pictures. Free Art Friday also has a blog which discusses art and art education issues of general interest.

Free Art Friday is a blog created by the author of this book, Debbie Mumm. Free Art Friday is a place to find art lessons and art resources that are free or inexpensive. You or your child can do the art lesson or activity during the weekend (hence the name Free Art Friday).

In each blog post you will learn about an artist and her work. Each blog post has:

1) an introductory paragraph about the artist,

2) a link to a video of the artist talking about her work, and

3) a link to at least one online resource (website, app, or article) where you can find instructions for the art lesson or activity that goes with that blog post.

The blog posts are arranged in reverse chronological order. For example, if you are looking for a blog post about Elizabeth Murray, you would browse through the most recent posts until you find one that is about Elizabeth Murray.

Free Art Friday is a blog created by Lynnea Washburn, who is a professional artist, educator, and mother of three. This blog is the place to come to get your art fix! Lynnea has been making art since she was old enough to hold a crayon in her hand. She has an Associates Degree in Fine Art from the University of Wisconsin – La Crosse and a Bachelor’s Degree in Art Education from Arizona State University.

Tons of people have asked her about doing art with their kids, so now she does it as a full time job! That’s right, she loves it so much that she quit her other job to teach the world how to make art!

Lynnea lives in Florida with her husband, three children, two dogs and cat. She also has a bullfrog named Fred who lives in the garden. You can reach Lynnea via email at info@freeartfriday

Hi, my name is Trisha and I love to paint! I’m a mom of three teenagers and two preteens. I enjoy painting with them as well as doing it on my own. I am excited to share my art with you!

I hope that you will enjoy the weekly free art lessons for you or your children to do together. Many of the pictures are pictures that my children have helped me paint. I am making this available for FREE to anyone who would like to use it. My goal is to help people develop an interest in art by offering these lessons and encouraging everyone to try it.

Hi! Thank you for checking out Free Art Friday! I am a fine arts artist, and I love to paint. My art is abstract and colorful, and I try to make each painting unique. It’s a lot of fun for me to paint anyway, but it’s even more fun when my paintings are appreciated. So I thought it would be nice to share them with people who might like them.

You can see examples of my paintings at the bottom of this page. If you like any of them, feel free to do an art lesson with your kids or grandkids on a weekend morning or evening. You can read about the lesson in the box at the top left of this page.

I painted all these paintings in 2010 and 2011, but I’ve been painting since before that, so there are others that aren’t on this website. You can see those here:

I’m always happy to hear from you — email me if you have any questions or comments!

Here’s how my artwork got started:

This is a weekly art lesson for children or adults, posted every Friday. You can do it with your child and have fun together. I will always post a large photo of the final artwork, some step-by-step photos of the progress, plus a few tips to help you along.

I hope you enjoy this blog, and I hope you share it with others who might find it useful.
