Book a private art class in a safe space for your children to continue their learning experience and add art to their curriculum.

We encourage free creativity while teaching techniques in a structured environment, we give older kids more challenging art levels and responsibility, we encourage the little ones to seek help from the older kids creating a community and cooperative space.
