KidzArt is a unique, drawing-based art enrichment program that emphasizes creativity, self-confidence and having fun. Weekly classes for grades K-5 are offered at various schools + community centers throughout Charlotte + Matthews, with no prior experience needed.

By using our simple drawing method, certified instructors help students create original works of art beyond what they thought possible. We offer exposure to many mediums over the course of a student’s education. We offer:

  • a nurturing, safe, non competitive environment
  • easy-to-learn drawing techniques that bring ideas to life.
  • a "no mistake" philosophy (meaning "mistakes" are an opportunity, not a road block!) that allows students to take risks and think outside the box.
  • professional-level fine art supplies and materials
  • activities that promote problem-solving + critical thinking skill development
  • focus exercises
  • techniques to relax through art
  • music to enhance art expression

Our Process

From the Picassos-in-training to those who think they will never get it, art becomes approachable and more fun than ever imagined with KidzArt techniques. KidzArt goes far beyond other art programs in developing life skills:

  • Relaxation
  • Focusing
  • Confidence
  • Problem solving
  • Positive attitude
  • Critical thinking

We assist students to become creative innovators by offering a safe environment where experimentation, risk taking + problem solving are a natural process.  The result?  Success beyond all expectations!
