KiDs & TEENS ART PROGRAMS 2016

Students of all ages explore a set of materials, a theme, or an area of study in depth. Class sizes are strictly limited so that students can get the most out of each course, and receive adequate attention from our instructors. Our classes evolve to meet the needs and interests of the students. New students explore new mediums while returning students build upon skills they have developed with our instructors in previous sessions. Returning students may revisit areas of study but projects will not be repeated.
