Silver Tree Visual Arts offers tweens & teens the opportunity to become artists! I love their motto -- "Not Crafts, Creative Thinking". Kids can enjoy classes in painting, pottery or drawing; explore a new art technique, hone their artistic skills and find a place to create during the summer. Birthday parties and seasonal events are also offered throughout the year!
