OUR PHILOSOPHY

Every person is potentially talented. We help children to unfold, find trust in their artistic abilities, make a friendship with pencil and a brush, to become familiar with different medias and techniques…In other words to become confident in art.

We also think art helps children to grow, makes them well balanced and happy. Not only it brings pleasure to create, but also helps to build one’s future life in any carrier.

We are very happy with our teaching experience. It’s amazing to see how often we get children who have to start from scratch and in a few lessons they are focused and joyful young artists who know what they are doing!

With every class their abilities get really stronger  as well as their coordination (fine motor skills), perseverance, concentration. The fact that they can create a piece of art and share it with others makes them really happy!

 

OUR PROGRAM

Working with the right side of the brain, developing creativity, imagination, fine motor skills, non-verbal visualization, helping children express feelings through art.
