Classes For Young Artists

Why Art?

Art has the role in education of helping children become like themselves instead of like everyone else. -Sydney Gurewitz Clemens

An arts education helps build academic skills and increase academic performance while also providing alternative opportunities to reward the skills of children who learn differently. -Gavin Newsom

Before a child talks, they sing. Before they write, they draw. As soon as they stand, they dance. Art is fundamental to human expression. -Phylicia Rashad
