What We Offer to the Young at Art

We believe that early and consistent exposure to art is crucial to the growth of young minds. Creating art helps children develop other skills that will benefit them greatly later in life. We also believe art is one of the most important means of self-expression and confidence building, combining imagination, spontaneity, playfulness and experimentation through a wide variety of mediums.
