Art program for children:
Every person is potentially talented. Our goal is to find that talent in a child and nourish it.

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 teacher’s experience. It’s amazing to see, how often, we get children, who have to start from scratch and in a few classes they are focused and joyful young artists, who know what they do!

Their abilities get really stronger with every class and stronger gets the 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!

What we do in our classes.

Our usual semester has different classes with painting, drawing and sculpting as a base core.

It’s mostly figure drawing, still lives and landscapes, balancing the colors and shapes.

Following, we always have some applied art, like prints, silk painting, work with ink, charcoal, pastel.

We study styles, artists and the art history. We do modeling, study design, work with color and composition.

We avoid copying or step by step painting, we want the children to work more independently and feel art from the inside.

The exception is only a once a semester class of the old master copying. Mostly, we give out a specific assignment and see how children can unfold and create, being helpful with making suggestions on improvements while children are creating.
We try to create friendly We try to stay informal.

We are always positioning ourselves as friends, who are more art experienced, but not as an art authority.
