Art classes, workshops and camps for children are taught by instructors experienced in working with children of all ages. Some instructors are multi subject and art specialists with California teaching credentials. All are experienced artists. Class sizes are meant to be small, usually less than 10 students. We place great emphasis on positive feedback and individual creativity while gently guiding students in basic skills. The focus is on the experience, the process and skill building during the steps of making art. The finished product is not the only goal, it is a step along the way in a quest for learning. It is our hope that students will enjoy their experience and be motivated to pursue their own artistic interests.
