A gallery of masterpieces showcases stunningly virtuosic renderings—which are especially impressive considering they were created by kids. While fostering a friendly, cheerful atmosphere, instructors teach classical art skills to classes of up to 12 students at a time. During weekly classes, the skilled instructors demonstrate how to realistically illustrate animals, figures, and still-life scenes using traditional media. "Creativity follows mastery" is the KidsArt philosophy, so they designed the sort of program they imagine the old masters would have approved. Planting graphite sticks and paintbrushes in pupils' hands, instructors teach color mixing, show students how to break an image into its component parts, and instill necessary behaviors such as focus and patience. Programs include individualized drawing and painting lessons and special-topic workshops, such as clay sculpture, figure drawing, and Anime/cartooning.

“Dance has altered every aspect of our lives in the most positive ways,” declares Sergio Leal, lead instructor and owner of Latin Dance Pro, on his bio page. Through his Latin dance classes, such as salsa and cha-cha, he hopes to instill that positivity in his students. In beginners' classes, he teaches up to 70 pupils at a time, creating a vibrant social setting for people to learn the sensual hip swings and intimate eyebrow flexes of the bachata. Whether strutting the Argentine tango or twirling dance partners during the cumbia and merengue, Sergio and his team of dancers, which includes Armen Way from Dancing with the Stars, bring humility to the environment that allows for a unintimidating, casual atmosphere where everyone can enjoy learning new moves at their own pace. Aside from group lessons, they also provide professional choreography, private lessons, and entertainment. Additionally, Sergio has his own line of dance apparel.
