TEACHING SELF-CONFIDENCE THROUGH SELF-EXPRESSION

KidzArt offers after-school classes at many schools in St. Johns County for students in Kindergarten* through Grade 5. These classes are held at the school immediately after the school day’s end and last for one hour.

At KidzArt, our students are introduced to a personal “tool box” of creative skills. Through our interactive class format, they learn how to use these tools to access the power of their imagination! Students begin to express their ideas freely and overcome the impulse to judge themselves…we help build self confidence through self-expression! Art is all about feeling the freedom to take risks, to explore the unknown, and to trust your own judgement…because when you are free to dream, you find the power to create!

*PLEASE NOTE – Fall/Winter Sessions are limited to Grades 1-5. Kindergarteners may be enrolled in the Spring Session at any time.


HOW DOES IT WORK?

  • Classes take place right on campus! Classes are held in a classroom on campus and students are collected by KidzArt instructors in our designated area. Students are always supervised.
  • All supplies are provided! Classes are 1-hour long, and typically held in 13-17 week long semesters. All materials will be provided by your child’s KidzArt instructor.
  • A new project every week! Projects never repeat and you can view photos of our classes throughout the year on our Facebook Page!

Enroll Online

PLEASE NOTE: The Fall/Winter Session is open to Grades 1-5, while the Spring Session is open to Grades K-5. Kindergarteners may enroll in the Spring Session at any time!
