Creating a masterwork of art can be like wandering through a maze: after a lengthy period of reflection and contemplation, you’ll still probably starve.

The Rostran Art School helps children and post-adolescents enrich their lives through the creative outlets of painting and drawing, with after-school classes that fit into the busy lives of proto-adults. The littlest color-slingers can experience art for the first time with the supervision of an accompanying parent in one-hour toddler class. Kid-safe mixed media and kid-centric instruction encourage children to explore the world of visual self-expression through clay, paint, and markers. Along with the supervision and support of a loving disciplinarian, each instructor nurtures the child’s natural drive for making things and aims to stoke their embers of creativity into a lifelong inferno of creation.
For children who have celebrated their quinquennial, option two avails pupils of a session focused on drawing and painting. The individualized instruction and artistically nurturing support help children to meet the incessant demands of the refrigerator-art black market. At Rostan, adults can connect with artistic inner children as well, with classes that cater to students of all abilities. Three decades of teaching experience, accentuated by research into children’s artistic development, allows owner Susan Rostan to construct enriching environments for all students. Classes are scheduled by phone. Call for information on availability.
