Children’s art classes
Grades: K-8
Nurture your child’s creative curiosity and self-expression through art and art-making.

Our children’s program is known for its comprehensive studio art experience with classes in drawing, painting and mixed media/sculpture designed to develop skill with materials and knowledge in artistic concepts. All students maintain a portfolio of work, which provides opportunities to analyze and discuss important works on display. Our small class sizes and dedicated instructors allow students to have fun experimenting with materials while learning how to express personal viewpoints and create well-crafted art.
