art classes for kids

My Studio Downstairs program is designed to nurture creative thinkers. The art sessions extend beyond the boundaries of making art. I offer an environment that supports creative curiosity and self-expression. Children explore ideas and use problem solving skills emphasizing the process of making art.
Studio Downstairs offers small classes where students explore many facets of art, including the fundamental elements: color, line, and shape. We experiment with traditional mediums: color pencil, paint, and multi-media. My classes integrate art historical figures and movements: Mondrian, Picasso, abstraction, realism, etc.
I am inspired by the creative process and encouraging students to invent their own visual languageā€¦each child creating, developing, and communicating in a personal approach.
