Don't let the name fool you––KidzArt isn't just for youngsters. The educational center's roaming teachers set up art-education classes and camps at nearly every place you can expect a large gathering: schools, recreation centers, churches, and assisted-living facilities. By presenting students with supplies and easy-to-learn techniques, the instructors hope to provide everyone––no matter how skilled they might be––with an outlet for their creativity.
For children and teens, that means funneling their energy into creating works with a variety of media. KidzArt's method, which is based in education and child development, helps them learn to focus and overcome mistakes with critical thinking and patience. Adults, meanwhile, make time for an artistic escape from their busy days, painting masterpieces while chatting with friends and unwinding with a tasty beverage. And elderly people may discover a new talent when art instructors schedule their diverting activities at senior-living centers.
