Saturday art classes give your child the opportunity to explore the fascinating world of imagination where there is NO one right answer. Classes foster an individual creative thinking process, builds motor skills and builds self confidence as these students, draw, paint and work in 3-D materials.

The Studio School offers the cultivation of creativity with Children’s  and Teen Art Classes! Geared towards children and teens of all ages, needs, and artistic levels, our Children’s/Teen Art Classes combine artistic technique for authentic self-expression.
We provide an educational children’s artistic experience that inspire the artist within!

Young artists will explore many facets of creating art. Lessons may include ( but are not limited to) a lesson of an old Master, such as Matisse, an art demonstration covering techniques in drawing with a variety of artist tools, (pencils, charcoal, pen and ink, watercolor, tempera, and acrylic) as well as a variety of techniques, (printmaking, painting, sketching, and drawing.)

Additionally our instructors work with each young artist so they given the opportunity to discover more about his or her creative interests by
exploring their own ideas while also learning about composition and design. Our instructors are professional artists and educators.
