ABOUT

MANY YEARS AGO,

our schools where faced with aggressive budget cuts which removed many important visual and performance art programs that allowed our students to exercise their creativity.

With limited options and many parents left searching for creative exposure for their children, we decided to hold art lessons out of our garage. Together with local parents and High School students we ran an after school program to share the joy of fine art with children of all ages, reigniting their imaginations once again.

A handful of students grew to over fifty and before we knew it our garage could not contain the excitement surrounding creativity and self discovery. After many humbling moments from our tiny garage we expanded our reach to share the joy of art with more children in our community. We focused our efforts on providing a creative outlet that brought fulfillment, new perspectives and skills to prepare our youth for the world ahead. Together with our Weekly program, Internship program and Portfolio program we provide our students with the guidance and foundations to help them grow to their full potential. We pride ourselves in helping students develop their inner voice to express themselves to the fullest, experiencing the joy of art from the heart.

WHAT IS IT?

The Internship program places our students in the role of a teacher, shifting their perspective and exposing them to new outlooks through the eyes of an educator. Interns work with students in Kindergarten through 3rd grade and help them reach their true potential. Through student mentorship, Interns build confidence and critical thinking skills that help in all aspects of their life.

The Internship program is for all High School students interested in building critical skills in communication, short & long term problem solving, patience and time management. If you or your student is shy or could benefit from leadership opportunities interacting with a variety of personalities then this program is for you.

WHAT IS IT?

Students who Minor or Major in art are required to submit their ‘Portfolio’, a collection of artworks that represent their current ability, style, and artistic identity. Our Portfolio Program is designed to help refine student’s artistic voice and align their submissions to meet the standards of top Colleges or Universities nationwide.

WHO IS IT FOR?

Students interested in a creative career or looking to enhance their college applications may wish to learn more about our Portfolio Program. Even if students don’t plan on making art a career they can leverage those skills to provide a competitive edge to their applications. Not every student choses to play sports for subsequent years to supplement their college applications so if you or your child leans more to the creative space then we have the program for you!

HOW DOES IT WORK?

The program is customized for every student to develop their independence while collaborating with a special team of Portfolio Instructors. Artworks are assigned to showcase each student’s technical and conceptual ability. Up to 20 pieces are planned, scheduled and finalized to meet the standards of their desired Colleges and Universities.

We facilitate meetings held every month to ensure progress remains on track. As students complete their pieces they learn how to take charge of planning and making decisions that benefit their future growth.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE?

The Portfolio program typically takes 8 months but may extend to as long as 12 months pending the pace, progress and requirements of each College or University. The program begins March of the student’s Junior year of High School and concludes October – January of the student’s Senior year

HOW SHOULD I PREPARE?

Developing the skills and style that make every artist unique takes time. If your student is not enrolled in our weekly classes we highly recommend an appointment to learn more about how our classes act as a pathway to our Portfolio Program.

For students ready to move forward, we recommend reviewing our list of colleges & universities to understand the requirements and programs available from each school.
