Visual Arts Classes and Programs

Do you Love Art?

How many times have you heard someone say that they "do not have an artistic bone in their body" or "I can't even draw a straight line" Most of us stop drawing around 10 years of age when we become very critical of ourselves.  Picasso said "Every child is an artist"   The struggle is how to remain an artist once you grow up.  The good news is that learning to play an instrument, learning how to draw; you can learn and we can teach you.
