Art Classes and Art Birthday Parties for kids


“All children are artists. The problem is how to remain an artist when you grow up.”

Pablo Picasso

The art classes and birthday parties are designed to encourage every child to explore, imagine, dream, and enjoy the creative process through different materials and techniques.

OUR GOALS:

This are the goals I share with my children:

  • Discover the amazing world of art. Learn how art not only was the first form of communication, but it also has been a universal language.
  • Learn and explore different art media using pencils, paint, clay, scissors, and recycled or found objects. We can get really dirty!
  • Create an open space for children to express their creativity. Children unlike adults, focus on the process and not on the final product. For us, as adults, the goal is to finish our projects, which is the reason why we undertake any task. Children enjoy so much the planning and the process itself that sometimes they don’t want to finish a project, or once it is finished, they are not attached to it.
  • Learn about Art History, including artist biographies, timelines and techniques.

The arts are enriched with the stuff kids need to succeed. Just like kids need to have good nutrition on a daily basis, kids need to have their daily serving of the arts. Studies have shown that involvement in the arts helps kids increase test scores and promotes academic achievement. (The Arts, Ask for More campaign).

THE CLASSES:

I can offer a great variety of classes from art history to painting, mixed media and photography. I have developed the whole content of the classes and I never use store bought art and craft kits.

Each session has 6 classes of two hours, and I have children from 6 to 14 years. Older children enrich the little ones with their skills, and also develop responsibility toward them.

Beside from the afterschool classes, I can develop custom made programs and classes designed for your organization or event.

THE ART ROOM:

We have plenty of light, great space, and all the arts and craft materials to work and get inspired.

BIRTHDAY PARTIES:

I can create Birthday Parties for your kids, I can work around your kid interests or I can offer my most popular themes.

I can make all the dreams come true. Everything is designed and handmade from wall decor, to pinatas, center pieces, goody bags, etc. I can accommodate to your budget.

I can work around famous artists, time periods, art techniques or fantasy themes.

Every party is as unique as your child is.

I can come to your place in the Washington DC area or I can ship the whole package to your city.

Give your kids a party to treasure for ever!
