- Every person is potentially talented.
- Our goal is to find that talent in a child and nourish it. We help children to unfold, find trust in their artistic abilities, make a friendship with pencil and a brush, to become familiar with different medias and techniques…In other words to become confident in art.
- We also think art helps children to grow, makes them well balanced and happy. Not only it brings a pleasure to create, but also it helps to build one’s future life in any carrier.
- We are very happy with our teacher’s experience. It’s amazing to see, how often, we get children, who have to start from scratch and in a few classes they are focused and joyful young artists, who know what they do! Their abilities get really stronger with every class and stronger gets the coordination (fine motor skills), perseverance, concentration. The fact that they can create a piece of art and share it with others makes them really happy!
