3: Find your own artistic style. 

Unlike many art classes that focus on replicating sample artworks for technique learning, this class encourages students to cultivate their own artistic styles. 

By listening to students' passions and providing tailored support, the instructor will emphasize individual interests and encourage creative expression. 

4: Learn about living artists

Level 2 students explore the masterpieces of iconic artists like Van Gogh, Picasso, and Frida Kahlo at school. However, have you ever wondered about the living artists shaping our present?

This class thoughtfully introduces diverse and age-appropriate artworks from contemporary artists, enabling students to forge a meaningful connection with the world of art.
