KC Edventures Guide for Ages 12-14

Silver Tree Visual Arts Featured


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!


Before Your Visit:

  • Check the schedule for dates/times of classes & events and be sure to register before your visit.
  • Parents are welcome to wait in the lobby or drop off students for classes; only students are allowed in the classrooms.
  • Kids will be involved in hands-on art activities so dress accordingly!


Explore Art Classes & Events:

  • A variety of classes are offered including:
