About Little Masters Art Studio

Little Masters Art Studio fosters art appreciation and offers quality hands-on art education for the busy hands and open minds of budding Little Masters. Each class session will focus on the work of a different famous artist rooted in past or contemporary art history. Each introduced artwork will inspire a new art-making technique exploring new artist materials. By keeping small class sizes Little Masters Art Studio offers a warm, welcoming environment where students can be inspired to explore their individual artistic spirit. The class curriculum is designed for specific ages and abilities of children enrolled in the course, empowering them to succeed in their creative process at all levels.
