Class Descriptions

We maintain a low student to teacher ratio. Projects are fun and imaginative, teaching is flexible and positive, and students learn foundational as well as more advanced art skills. 

Younger children are immersed in exploratory, multi-sensory projects and learn to express themselves creatively and work independently and as a team.

Older students are ready for more and learn basic 2D and 3D art skills in a judgement-free atmosphere. Imagine, learn new skills, and solve open-ended questions while having fun and working creatively.
