Children are natural storytellers. As young as five years old, they are able to make surprisingly sophisticated design choices and develop themes based upon their interests. At this introductory level, our program taps into your child's creative drive.

We have developed an innovative, age-appropriate curriculum that allows our youngest students to express their creativity while learning skills that transfer into our program for older children. More importantly, classes at this level help children to focus and concentrate in all areas of their life.

Our casual atmosphere, small class sizes, and ample one-on-one time with our dedicated instructors ensures that kids learn and have fun in a structured environment.

Your vision and love for both art and kids is really evident.

Elizabeth is thoroughly enjoying her art class with you. She looks forward to each class and hates to miss a session. Thank you for teaching and inspiring her.

While other interests come and go, our children have remained steadfast and joyful in their study at The Art Academy. Both my son and daughter began lessons at age five: three years later, not only are they confident drawers and painters, they demonstrate a real appreciation for art.
