Art Classes – Kids, Youth and Teens

 Kids and Youth Art Programs are about exploring the expressive arts. The goal of our classes is to unleash the young artist within. How? By providing the tools by teaching various techniques and exposing various media; by providing time for practice and play in an encouraging atmosphere; and by providing opportunities to apply new skills in free time moments.

summer workshops

Art promotes joy and the process of making art provides freedom of expression in the absence of criticism. Art is the expression of the soul. Here we offer the support and opportunity to explore the visual arts in a safe and creative environment. The process of art promotes general well being, relaxation, relief of stress, building self confidence and self worth in the artist of any age and of course, it develops and supports creative thinking!

“Creative children look twice, listen for smells, dig deeper, build castles, get from behind locked doors, have a ball, plug in the sun, get in and out of deep water, sing in their own key”

Paul Torrance

Exploration, experimenting and play are key to our children’s development.  Tactile learning,  a chance to process, practice and apply various skills without fear of judgment is an important aspect of child development skills, creative thinking and expression.  Art is a tool which allows for such processing.

It creates joy, promotes self worth and helps to develop self confidence.  All materials are supplied
