After a fun-filled summer, it’s time to think about after-school enrichment activities for your children. Enter KidzArt Charlotte. This program is for children of all ages (adults too!). KidzArt is for those who love to draw and even for those who think they can’t! Classes are full of inspiring drawing and art projects for every ‘lil Smarty to enjoy all year long. Through fun interactive exercises using quality art materials, your child will learn exciting techniques at their level and strengthen their creative muscles in a whole new way with KidzArt! And best of all, it’s super FUN!
Local KidzArt franchise owner, Linda Shaw, was the very first KidzArt franchisee in the nation (a big Smarty congrats goes out to Linda!). Under her guidance since 2000, over 1,300 ‘lil Smarty artists have taken KidzArt classes, many of the original students are now thriving in the arts in high school. KidzArt enhances a child’s experience of art. Kids have a great need to express themselves in many ways — artistically, emotionally, physically and spiritually. KidzArt impacts each and every area of expression. KidzArt is different from traditional art programs as it challenges students in a fun way to create what they never imagined. They begin to “see” like an artist. The KidzArt classroom is a non-competitive environment enhanced by soft music that allows children to focus and enjoy what they are doing. Parents see the difference in the quality of art their children bring home. Kids get immediate results as their enthusiasm for art increases. KidzArt is encouraging tomorrow’s innovators!
