CHILDREN’S ART CLASSES

AGES 2-12

Instruction is diversified to foster artistic growth in a fun atmosphere filled with discovery, connection, possibility, and celebration.

As a parent, you want after-school and summer care that is beyond the arts & crafts drop-in services that offer trivial activities to keep your kids entertained. You want an experience for your child that is fun and rewarding, but also has intrinsic educational value. You want them to enjoy the day but to also get something of value from it.

Our approach to lessons is to meet students where they are in their personal artistic journey, whether a beginner or a seasoned artist. A 5-year-old needs plenty of room to explore and discover art materials, while a 12-year old artist may need special help in developing their unique ideas to be imbued into a masterpiece.
