Programs, Parties and Camps for Kids!

 

Wouldn't it be cool to have a place to go to paint and have images magically appear, a place that can capture your feelings in time to have forever ....... something even the most innovative of inventions could never make happen .... the power of art.

Our classes are stress free and fun.  Kids get together to engage in a positive group experience where everyone is treated with respect and naturally treat each other the same while learning how to draw or paint. It not about the product but more about the process and how proud the kids feel while admiring their completed works of art proven by the smiles on their faces.  Our classes also help children to develop their ability to focus, concentrate and challenge their creative side while even developing mathematical skills but shhhhh we won't tell them that part! : )

Come paint and personalize a bank for a loved one, teacher or friend because nothing says ‘thank you’ or ‘I love you’ better than a handmade gift.

Our educated and friendly staff are there to help you with questions, ideas and techniques you are interested in learning. Groups of 6 or more can call ahead and reserve a special table or section for your special gathering.

Ages 18 to 24 – Young Adults on the Spectrum or with special needs - Tuesday nights 7:00-8:30 This group gives those with special needs and a desire to be included and supported an opportunity to meet new friends and become part of a supportive comradery of others who want the same.  Group discussions include interests, basic skills, and social struggles as each participate and solutions to others within their own comfort zones.  Groups engage in projects that include vision boards, art projects and community support projects discussed and decided on by the group.

Ages 8 to 12 – This group helps kids understand the act of bullying, avoiding trouble while at school, putting plans into place to improve their school experience, options to keep him/herself safe.  This is a group for kids looking for ways to find and make good friends -– Wednesdays 6:00 to 7:30– Knowing you’re not alone is empowering in itself.  These groups meet to discuss what it feels like to be targeted or not included by others.  This hour is spent talking and creating inspirational projects designed to build character, self-esteem and confidence as well become involved in community unity ideas and projects the group thinks up to help and support other groups that may be in need.

Ages 13 to 16 – The struggles this age group experiences are real.  Their perception is their reality.  These groups are formed to let each other know they are not alone.  Groups allow individuals to share their struggles and difficulties.  It allows them to be heard and have solutions offered from peers that become trusted friends and empowering mechanisms for support and needed feelings of self-worth or purpose.
