Why Golden Moon Studios?
The Full Story
It's been a dream of ours to offer more resources to our community, especially young minds interested in art. Our educational approach supports children & youth to imagine, create and collaborate. Our program offers lessons through play-based learning and self expression projects.
Our hope is to give children a voice through art-making. Art allows a child to explore, from the point of the unknown to a point of completion, learning art techniques while working through mistakes and problem solving, resulting in higher self-confidence, awareness, and leadership skills.
We hope to provide growth in children through honoring ideas, executing dream designs, guidance through questions to engage problem-solving, build creative thought processes through mistake-making, and celebrate collaboration.
We believe arts as a form of language to express feelings and emotions. We achieve this through hands-on experimental arts education for children & youth. Whether your child is curious about art or looking to feed an already blossoming interest, our inspiring space and exceptional staff are here to help grow young minds through our carefully curated program.

" I believe art is a form of communication. As an artist, I want to say it's a third form of language. This is how we communicate to the world and it is through our artwork."
Our Staff - Christine Kita
