KidzArt — Where Creativity Rules!
Art is our passion and we love sharing that enthusiasm with our students! We work with children to spark their imagination, reveal their artistic side, build their self confidence and most importantly create an environment where they are free to express themselves and have fun. KidzArt impacts each and every area of expression and helps enhance a child’s experience of art. We challenge our students with creative thinking and problem solving exercises and provide an environment conducive to self expression. Our classes are designed to reach every child, from the Picasso-in-training to the child who never thought they could draw.
Our certified instructors are knowledgeable, caring teachers who are committed to providing children with opportunities to be creative and expressive through art education. We help children develop new skills, explore their creativity, and provide them with opportunities to think, discover, problem solve and build self confidence. Our program is designed to be a safe, non-competitive, relaxing environment where our students are given enough guidance to feel successful with enough freedom to be independently creative.
