Art gives your child a brain-boosting start every week.

Creating art stimulates communication between the left and right half of the brain. Recent MRI studies show that art can enhance memory, relieve stress, and improve cognitive function.

This is a class which advances older children into more mature drawing techniques such as perspective, beginner portrait, and expanded media. Some art history is taught, along with the five elements of art. We encourage an ongoing inner dialogue between good technique and authentic self expression, and engage students in conversation about their artistic thoughts and feelings.
