Parents can sign their children up for a full school year course that meets the federal standard for elementary art. The classes will focus on all of the elements of art and will use a variety of mediums. We will take inspiration from many of the masters of art throughout history.
Art is Fundamental
At Chestnut House Art School we believe that art is a fundamental requirement, in addition to standard lessons, to give children a complete education. The various forms of art teach children problem solving, analytical skills, focus, discipline and memory skills, and strengthens their understanding of visual imagery. Art surpasses class, language, and culture barriers and can even boost self esteem and social skills. It is an integral part of the foundation of a well rounded education.
Sadly, art is often the first course that schools diminish or eliminate when there are budget cuts. At Chestnut House Art School, we offer classes so that students don't have to miss out on a vital component of their education. Whether a child is in a traditional classroom or a home school setting, art is a necessity and we help parents give their children some critical skills that will be beneficial all throughout their lives.
Sign your child up for one of our Themed Units, enroll them for the School Year Course, and find out about our Open Studio Craft Times.
