Afterschool Classes

Our afterschool art classes are the highlight of many of our student's week!  Check out some of the benefits of enrolling your child in an afterschool art program!  

Social Benefits: Socialization is becoming a lost art in our tech-focused society. Our art classes provide your child with the opportunity to meet and connect with new friends that share a common interest: art!  Participating in programs like ours can help encourage all children to become more socially active and skilled while creating their own masterpieces.

Educational Benefits:  The majority of children today are lucky if they receive just half an hour of art in their school per week, but even educators can tell you that creative programs like art provide children with a more well-rounded education.  Engagement in art also impacts other areas of academics that are not taught, like focus, concentration, planning, follow-through, problem solving and perseverance.

Emotional Benefits: Children who need to build their self-confidence often do so easily through art because of the sense of accomplishment that goes with it.  Our philosophy and approach is to never compare, but to encourage.  The freedom that children enjoy within the projects themselves provides some kids with a creative therapeutic outlet, which is a great counter-balance to the stress of school.  Coming weekly to our nurturing and supportive environment also provides some students with a sense of security and routine that they need.

Art Fun

Art Lab

Since 2017, Art Lab (formerly called Art Club) is our student's FAVORITE class!  The focus of Art Lab is for our students to have their own place and time to create and make whatever is on their mind, just like a real artist's studio!   As the only art studio in Tampa Bay to use the Teaching for Artistic Behavior approach to instruct them about art media, materials and techniques.  We then let our emerging artists explore materials throughout the studio and choose how to best express their own ideas using the media of their preference to make artwork that is personally meaningful.

Stitch Club

This class is designed to give children an opportunity to learn hand work arts and crafts such as sewing, weaving embroidery and other creative textile media. 

Each week, we give step-by-step instruction for creating a new project that can be ajusted to different skill sets. Socialization is highly encouraged and is great for creative kids who don't get to take art in school, or even older kids who find making art a nice reprieve from the demands of middle or high school.  

There are two levels of Stich Club, Beginner and Advanced, so please contact us if you are unsure which would be best for your child. Additional cost of materials and supplies is included in the tuition.

Tuition: $140 for each 4 week session.

Ages: 8 years old and up

Our Advanced Sketch and Paint class is for students who are more proficient and experienced who want to take their skills to the next level and work on their portfolio.
