Frequently asked questions
How long will it take for my child to learn to draw/paint on their own?
Making art is an ongoing process, there is always something new to learn; whether it’s a new technique, a new artist, an art movement or a curriculum connection, there is always room for growth and improvement. With that said, our curriculum follows the elements of art and design, so it takes approximately 7 months to cover all the basics, after which we continue to apply what we learned through a wide variety of projects and units.

What do they learn in class?
What we teach in class are the building blocks of art. What the students learn in class goes way beyond just art making. They learn to think creatively, to think ahead, to work with others, to be kind and empathic towards other students. They learn to be independent and to express their individuality. They build self confidence and learn to work with mistakes. They learn problem solving skills and most importantly; they do it all while having fun in a safe environment.
