Our large roster of visual and performing arts programs for kids and teens are carefully chosen and designed to offer students lots of choice, while incorporating a nice balance between challenging, creative, engaging, skill-based and fun classes. Programs teach children proper technical skills in both classical and latest studio approaches. Each student is encouraged to trust their own creative choices and develop their own unique, artistic voice.
The School’s professional instructors are all practicing artists, who have plenty of experience working with youth. They help to inspire the love of learning and provide a nurturing environment for their students.

Small Class Sizes
Small class sizes and plenty of individual attention ensure students learn at their own pace and level.
Training in the arts is one way to develop the qualities that young people need to prepare for life. Working on a creation from start to finish, whether a painting, a sculpture, a play or a song, fosters self-confidence and develops the skills of problem-solving, setting goals and seeing a process through to completion. Making choices within this process encourages self-esteem and self-expression. As children’s choices are incorporated into the project, they feel a sense of validation…and by adding their own uniqueness, they are discovering that they are indeed unique and that they have something to contribute to the world around them.- Liana Del Mastro, Director
