Kids (Grades 1 – 6)

If you have children in your life, you know that creativity and curiosity are the building blocks of learning and development.

Our Kids’ Programs are designed to spark and develop creativity, allowing kids to express their own ideas and imagination while introducing specific and age appropriate art skills and techniques. Our students work from observation as well as imagination and memory, helping sharpen their observation skills and challenge their perceptions of the visual world. See below for course schedules and detailed course descriptions.

Teens (Grades 6 – 12)

Our courses for teens are aimed at helping students develop their technical and conceptual visual art skills, encouraging them to think “outside the box”—preparing them for careers in creative industries. Students will explore concepts from  traditional to contemporary art history and practices, inspiring them to examine and express their own original ideas and independent conceptual thinking. Various materials and techniques are introduced, and students are encouraged to focus on developing soft skills like time/project management, presentation and critiquing.
