Art Works art School is a community based art school whose mandate is to introduce adults, teens and children to the enriching world of art in a positive, creative and healthy environment.
CLASSES & PROGRAMS
Kinder Kids (ages 3 to 6)
Through art activities, dramatic readings, music and references to artists through history, children’s imaginations are cultivated. Drawing, painting, printmaking, sculpture and mixed media will all be part of the curriculum. Exploration and proper handling of the materials will be emphasized, with children being encouraged and guided through the process and completion of a finished project.
We provide art instruction for children aged 6-12 years with special emphasis on the development of visual awareness, personal expression, confidence in problem solving, imagination and comfort with materials.
The emphasis on our teen programs focuses on developing technique and encouraging confidence with the medium of choice. Several of our programs focus on portfolio preparation for high school, college and university, ages 11-17.
March Break and Summer Camps offer both half day and full day programs, as well as engaging Before Care, Lunch care and After Care programming. Our March Break and Summer Camps coincide with the TDSBCalendar. Our March Break programming is suitable for 3-6, 6-9 years and 8-12 years.
