We believe in progression toward mastery.
We’re not going to tell your kids “there’s no mistakes in art” because we think kids can work through mistakes to accomplish challenging artistic goals. Instead, you’ll hear us say “art rewards rigor.”
We base our lessons on a few simple supplies.
We want kids to be wise stewards of earth’s resources and helpful members of their family and school. Thus, the materials we recommend are to the point. We encourage tidiness and responsibility with art supplies throughout our programs.
We believe every ethnicity and culture holds a treasury of art knowledge.
This means the canon of “art history” is inexhaustible. We foster appreciation for the rich diversity of people groups as expressed through human artistry.
We think it’s cool to be inspired by Art Masters of the past.
Art history offers valuable perspective, layered understanding of the present, and inspiration for new works of art.
We believe everyone has unique creative gifts
and we help kids discover and cultivate theirs!
We believe positive affirmation + high expectations = great achievement in art
Our lessons are infused with love, positivity, and growth-inspiring challenges.
