Classes from Clay to Sewing

Studio 4 Art is looking forward to having our Fall classes begin. Classes are very versatile and begin from the age of 20 months through teens. Officially our classes begin September 12th. However, they are designed to be ongoing and because of our teaching style, you may begin at any time.

In our programs for toddlers we introduce them to a wide variety of art materials, and much of it is child initiated. Stations are set up so that those short attention spans can naturally explore with curiosity.age 4

For our teens, we love to get their minds intrigued with the understanding of art and art materials. Studio 4 Art's instructors will challenge your teen to become engaged and excited about their learning with drawing, cartooning, painting (oil and acrylic), ceramics (wheel throwing and sculpting), mixed media, encaustics (very ancient technique painting with bees wax and pigment) and sewing (hand and machine).Teen Portfolio Class

Studio 4 Art is also available to help create a portfolio for kids that are wanting to get into private art schools, whether it is High School or College.

We obviously have many classes that range in between our toddler and teens. Studio 4 Art teaches on a very individual basis and we get a sense of where each child is, then create a curriculum that will scaffold their learning.

Each day a student comes to class, they will leave with exciting hands on information about art and how to use art materials. Our favorite part of each class, when a student leaves and is bubbling with information that they can't wait to share with their family.
