Since 1988, thousands of children have been introduced to the magic of art in Art Start classes. Children explore a variety of media as they draw, paint and sculpt and begin to see the world through the eyes of an artist. The fun and colorful projects appeal to children of all ages -- even parents have enrolled!
Artist Susan Bainbridge uses a directed drawing approach to provide students with a structure for a positive beginning. Students are encouraged to creatively expand beyond that start. The end results are individually distinct. Art terms, media tips and art appreciation are introduced to further enrich their lessons. Clay and origami are often taught to develop children’s spatial thinking and dexterity.
