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!
Kids will work at their own pace and will also begin healthy class critiques of their classmates artwork.
Older kids will enjoy this wonderful art series that delves into art history, techniques and famous artists --
