We promote artistic exploration while developing technique and critical-thinking skills. Each theme is explored through a variety of mediums and imaginative projects. Students have three breaks during the day to explore our beautiful park, play on the connecting playground or participate in games with their peers. Our weekly programs culminate in an art show designed to showcase and celebrate each child’s artistic accomplishments.
