Children Art Classes

The Power of Art. Nurture your child’s love of making art, give them the chance to be explore their artistic talents. Students are able to explore creative art materials, learn and demonstrate art techniques and design original artwork.

In the book “The Artful Parent: Simple Ways to Fill Your Family’s Life with Art & Creativity’ author Jean Van’t Hul states:

▶ Educators tell us that art encourages fine motor skills, neural development, and problem-solving abilities and that it can be used effectively to teach and understand other key subjects such as reading, writing, math, and science.

▶ Therapists tell us that art is valuable because it allows children to process their world, to deal with sometimes scary emotions in a safe way, and because it gives them critical sensory input.

▶ Artists tell us that art is important for its own sake—as a source of beauty and expression, as well as simply for the process of creating.

▶ Kids tell us that art is fun, an activity they enjoy.

▶ Parents tell us that art is vital to their families because it keeps everyone engaged and happy and helps with the sometimes difficult transitions of the day.
