A leader in arts education, the Avenue Road Arts School has been providing innovative and high-quality arts classes in visual and performing arts since 1993. We know how to engage young and old in creative, exciting ways and to draw out artistic talent in a supportive, relaxed atmosphere. Classes are taught by professional artists/educators, and small class sizes allow for individual guidance to students at all levels.
AFTER SCHOOL & SATURDAY ARTS PROGRAMS
The After School and Saturday Arts Programs are carefully chosen and designed to offer children and teens plenty of choice, while incorporating a fine balance between fun, creative, engaging and skill-based classes, in both the performing and visual arts. 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 unique artistic voice.
