Get Your Kids OFF THE SCREENS And Expand The CREATIVE Problem-Solving Center In Their Brains - ALL WHILE HAVING LOADS OF FUN!!!

GET READY FOR A TRIP AROUND THE WORLD! WE HAVE AN AMAZING CURRICULUM LINED UP THIS YEAR THAT FOCUSES ON ABOUT ONE COUNTRY PER MONTH WITH PROJECTS THAT FOCUS ON KEY POINTS OF ART AND CULTURE FROM EACH PLACE. WE WON'T EVEN KNOW HOW MUCH WE'RE LEARNING AS WE EXPLORE THE COOLEST PLACES AND PEOPLE ON EARTH!!! As usual, a wide variety of art materials, techniques, skills, art vocabulary and famous art pieces will be investigated.

The Deep Dive Intensive Workshops we started over the winter break were AMAZING! 2 hours of instruction for 2 days was just perfect to create totally unique layered mixed media works of art (plus a fun extra while we waited for paint to dry). The feedback was great, so be on the lookout as I will add a few more of these to the Studio schedule!

KIDS NIGHT OUT! was also a ton of fun and a groovy good time for those who came. We plan to add this on a regular schedule soon! Watch the schedule for the first Friday of each month. Check back to register and to confirm dates as they might vary a bit as needed.

We are having TWO GRAND ART SHOWS that will showcase the art created from each semester and as usual, each artist will receive a custom art award. The Fall Show will be set up with art from the countries we explored in that semester and the Spring will be set with the new countries from that semester. Each class, we will add more sketches and facts to our passport sketchbooks too. Get ready for an AMAZING year of FUN & LEARNING!

We LOVE showing off all the amazing works of art the young artists create! Check back here for the show dates. We will post as soon as all school dates are coordinated and approved.
