What People Are Saying...

 "We have truly loved this class. It has been a wonderful space for our 3-year old daughter to explore different artistic ideas (techniques, mediums, processes) and be creative and expressive. She loves the complement of music and art activities, always looking forward to class. The different projects have made us a more creative and exploratory family as we have been able to integrate art projects into our daily life in a fun way. We are grateful for the instruction and invitation to explore we have found from the teachers and class!"

-Meagan L.

"My daughter always has a wonderful time creating art in her own exploratory way during class. Her teachers are great at helping her experiment with new, fun ways to create. We also love discovering new ideas for art to try out at home" - Leah H.


"This art class is a wonderful addition to Asheville. My son thrives in this class and looks forward to it weekly. He is able to be himself and create at his own pace using his own creativity with the wonderful materials provided. The toddler art group has shown me that my son loves sensory art and we now make more of it at home. Thank you, Jean and Melissa. You are both wonderful!" -Brooke S.
