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.

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
