After School Picassos

Art helps students find new ways to invent, create and explore new ideas. Our art instructors guide your child by providing them with the inspiration and tools to make the process of creating art fun, as well as educational. Not only do we encourage creative exploration, students also learn technique, form, color, balance, and design. A wide variety of art materials and techniques are used such as acrylic and watercolor paints, papier-mâché, and more!

Afterschool Picassos takes place on Wednesdays, 3:45-5:00pm
