Art Classes for Kids and Teens Fall 2017

To  ensure individualized attention for each student, I keep my children’s art classes very small. My philosophy is that in order to instill a life long love of art, children need to have fun whilst they are expressing their creativity. Please take a moment to view my Students’ Artwork.
