Now offering Virtual Classes!To best serve KidzArt families, we've launched an online class program that mirrors our unique afterschool drawing classes. Join us from anywhere! We'll offer LIVE step-by-step instructional classes via Zoom. Classes start at 2:30pm EST and last approximately 45 minutes each. (These classes are suggested for ages 6-11) Can't make the live classes at 2:30pm? No problem - at the end of the week, we'll send our registered KidzArt families a link with the recorded classes!

Learning Should Never Be Boring
Educate More Creatively
If you can dream, you can draw! KidzArt is a unique, drawing-based art enrichment program that emphasizes creativity, self-confidence and having fun. From the Picassos-in-Training to those who think they will never get it, art becomes approachable and more fun than ever imagined. By breaking drawings and projects into manageable steps, we help them rise to the challenge and overcome obstacles with creative thinking. These invaluable skills also carry over to other areas of study and life! We demonstrate techniques to relax, focus and engage in the creative process. Our No Mistakes philosophy (meaning it doesn’t have to be perfect!) supports problem-solving skills and the ability to see the world in a new way. The result? Success beyond all expectations!
