Art Classes

At Happimess we believe that art is not only fun, but essential to children's development. Our art classes provide a supportive and nurturing environment for children to explore their creativity, build new skills, and develop self-esteem.

Each week, our classes focus on a new theme, including famous artists, space, fairy tales, fantasy characters, and more. Our talented instructors guide students through a variety of techniques and mediums, helping them to discover new ways to express themselves and deepen their connections to their unique talents.
 

We also understand that convenience is key for busy families, which is why we offer a pick-up service from Squamish Elementary & GHE through our after-school program.

Private Art Class

Book a private art class in a safe space for your children to continue their learning experience and add art to their curriculum. Students involved in the arts have tremendous academic benefits compared to students without exposure to the arts. Art inspires kids to excel, increases motivation, improves attitudes, reduces anxiety and improves overall academic performance.


We cater to each individual child based on their age, skill, and attention span. 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. 

All Ages | 60min.| $125 for 5 kids

+$25/participant with a maximum of 8 kids

A perfect class to add some colour and creativity to their learning experience.
