Led by artiste extraordinaire Dina Silveira, classes at Time For Art Kids mold fledgling finger painters into expressive pintsized Picassos. During one-hour classes geared toward 6- to 11-year-olds, Dina provides all needed materials as she uses watercolors, acrylic paints, oil and chalk pastels, and Prismacolor markers to help youngsters channel their inner artistic abilities. Taught in a brand-new, fully equipped art studio, each lesson takes place in an interactive environment that encourages kids to make friends, hone creative skills, and craft masterpieces worthy of a spot on the Louvre's fridge. With classes offered five times a week and including after-school and Saturday options, parents can easily avoid scheduling conflicts with sports practices, piano recitals, and lemonade-stand quarterly meetings.
Time For Art Kids
The pintsize artist considers her canvas, pintsize fingers encircling stocky pastel sticks and paintbrushes' lanky handles as she unleashes a deft slash of color. This isn’t a description of Georgia O’Keefe’s 10th birthday party—it’s just another day at Time For Art Kids' bustling studio. The studio welcomes children aged 6–13 for eight-week art classes, wherein kids are encouraged to express their thoughts and feelings through creative visual images. Year-round art camps combine arts and crafts with show-and-tell and games. Time For Art Kids also sets up face-painting stations at birthday parties and other celebrations, and welcomes large groups for children's birthday parties and ladies' and parents' nights out.
