OUR MISSION

Creativity is both our Passion and Purpose! 

Our goal is to INSPIRE THE CREATIVE DEVELOPMENT OF THE WHOLE CHILD! 


Over the past two decades we have developed and implemented highly acclaimed, dynamic, and interactive art instruction in our kids art classes, art camps, STEAM Classses and STEAM Camps, specifically designed to meet the needs of children and their educators.  Our philosophy pays particular attention to the ever changing facets and influences of society and our environment.  Art Camp is visionary, constantly pioneering innovative programs emulated by others.


Why is Creativity so Important?

Being creative helps one become a better problem solver in all areas of life.  Creativity helps one see things differently and better deal with uncertainty.  Studies show that creative people are better able to adapt their thinking to allow for the flow of the unknown, thereby making them more successful in life. 


Our Art Program:

• Teaches a wide array of art skills (Including Drawing, Cartooning, Painting & Sculpture),

• Offers opportunities for self-expression, 

• Promotes creative problem-solving, 

• Facilitates emotional healing,

• Enhances cognitive function, and 

• Is simply enjoyable! 

Creating fun, whimsical art can inspire a giggle or two!


Why ART CAMP? 

Our staff are highly experienced, kind and nurturing.  Our students are happy and learn valuable lessons while having fun!  Children who have committed to our program excel in academics, are able to tackle challenges with ease, are successful, well-rounded, and passionate!  Additionally, our students are very successful in their art endeavors, winning art awards and earning top placement in superlative art schools such as HSPVA (The High School for Performing & Visual Arts).  Our students comprise approximately 8% of the 11% acceptance rate into such schools!  

Your success is our success!

WHAT SETS US APART

EVERYONE can learn to CREATE ART.  With the right tools, you can also learn to teach art.  But, there is so much more to this education process. 


Instructors at our art school understand that each child perceives, processes, learns, applies and appreciates art in their own way.  


Therefore, our creative classroom environment promotes interactive lessons, encourages student engagement, fosters student innovation, while also motivating children to learn using a variety of techniques and tools.  


We think outside the box and we sometimes color outside the lines!  This process can really transform the way students acquire knowledge and how they apply it in real life. We feel this is why our kids art classes, art camps, STEAM Classes and STEAM Camps are so beneficial.


Since our Mission is to INSPIRE THE CREATIVE DEVELOPMENT OF THE WHOLE CHILD, we must embrace Kinesthetic & Interactive Learning in all our Art endeavors.
