Art Classes for Kids and Other Locations For Creativity

art for kids


IMG_4489Having a daughter who LOVES art, we’ve scoured many of the local offerings for the creative spirit!  We are fortunate to be surrounded by many art enthusiasts in our area, who also see the need for building that important creative side of budding brains! Whether it is a class or workshop, or maybe an art-inspired party you seek, this is nice list to get things started. Some studios provide lessons just for kids, others present a learning environment that will suit the whole family. Go ahead, young artisans, and grab your art supplies… it’s time to get drawing, painting and sculpting!
