25 years ago, Barbara Gay, a public art teacher for 20+ years, began teaching her two daughters art skills from her garage. Now, Children’s Art Classes has expanded to over a dozen locations and counting.
Children’s Art Classes offers summer workshops and a nine- month programs of study to thousands of children across America.
We aim to provide a holistic art education program that enhances the lives of its students, improves their self- esteem, and boosts academic performance by offering a comprehensive curriculum that includes over 40 areas of visual art , including drawing, painting, sculpture, and graphic design. We believe that art education can significantly benefit children’s development and have designed a program to enhance their creativity, problem- solving skills, and critical thinking abilities.
We want to encourage students to continue studying art by offering scholarships, guidance on obtaining a degree, and opportunities to become professionals in the field. Our curriculum has proven results with many honor students graduating from our programs, with students earning art scholarships and many participating in leading art shows.
We are dedicated to supporting your child in their own journey and personal growth, and we can’t wait to meet you!
