AFTER SCHOOL CLASSES Starting Tuesday Sept 7th

Welcome back to a new year of (hopefully!) some return to normalcy!  We know you, as well as the kids, are looking forward to a steady routine of fall after-school activities. So are we! Boy, are we excited to have you back and work on some fun projects together! Our curriculum includes technique development, some art history, and lots of creative exploration. We reduce, reuse, and recycle, but also rethink and recreate with more than just the traditional art materials. We provide structure, but also inspire students to be curious, and experiment with what "think outside the box" means. Singing bowl meditation in the beginning of class helps to develop focused attention. Our goal is to foster meaningful artwork, while teaching life long skills, and cultivating the creative process of all students. Please take a look below at our new schedule for Fall 2021, and give us a call if you have any questions. Please Note: We have Rolling Admissions throughout the school year.

  •  Art Kit included with Registration ($50) 

  •  (Classes accommodate High Functioning Asperger's)

We aim to inspire, foster, and promote creative expression. Why? Because art enriches our lives beyond measure!  At The Heart of Art, we inspire students to use art and meditation as a means of self-discovery, problem solving, and enjoyment! Technique is taught and developed, plus each child is encouraged to find and nurture their own, unique style.

The $100 (Mixed Media Art 75 min class) or $80 (Drawing Only, 45 min class) fee per child is for one class, every week, for 4 consecutive weeks, due at the start of the 4 week session.  A starter Art Kit must be purchased for $50 to help cover costs of shared art supplies, and should be replenished whenever they run out of an item.  A note will be given to parents/guardians whenever a replenishment is necessary.  The art classes are offered Mon-Thurs and consist of varying subjects including, but not limited to: acrylic painting, pastels, drawing, and sculpture.  If a student misses a class, The Heart of Art will try to accommodate a make-up class, however if it is not possible, no refunds will be given for a missed class.  Due to scheduling demands, the missed class should be made up within the next week of classes. If any disruptive behavior occurs, we try to peacefully amend the situation with little interruption to the class. However, if disruptive behavior persists, we inform the parent, and if it still continues in the class, The Heart of Art reserves the right to expel the student from the class without refund.
