Creative Kids Club classes encourage creativity and strengthen children’s ability to put ideas into concrete forms through art.
What will I learn in this class?
Little Artist (ages 3–6) is ideal for beginners and intermediate-level children. Working on fun two- or three-dimensional art projects, children learn about colors and shapes, art materials like watercolors, acrylic paints, clay and origami paper as well as how to use tools such as brushes, scissors and glue.
Advanced Studio (ages 6–13) is for those who love creating art freely. Students learn how to express themselves through a wide variety of materials, including acrylic paints, clay, wood, stone and fabric. Students are also introduced to the works of different great artists.
What are the benefits of this class?
Through the process of creating their own original artwork, students learn practical skills and techniques, gain confidence in their artistic abilities and improve concentration. This allows children to appreciate beauty while creating from their imagination. Creating art enriches children’s lives and establishes lifelong memories.
