Curriculum

Through a combination of art history, encouraging self-expression, and the exploration of artistic techniques (including drawing, painting, collage, mixed-media, and more), children gain a unique educational experience. Our instructors encourage imagination, creative expression, and joy. All children receive guidance from our skilled art instructors, who have experience bringing art to young children in a fun, engaging, and joyful way.

Behind Art
Activities

While mastering a subject certainly builds a student’s confidence, there is something special about participating in the arts. Using materials that turn into visual stories is magical, and it helps students feel more confident. As they improve and see their own progress, their self-confidence continues to grow. Which is why our after school program offers visual art based lessons, including watercolor, acrylic, mixed media, drawing and so much more! We also offer diverse learning opportunities through Art and Science Experiments as well as Culture and History based art projects.

 

We offer free art supplies for the first month! Afterwards, you will be required to purchase your child’s supplies. We will provide a supply list that you can take to California Art Supply (or a place of your choosing). We highly encourage students to take care of their own art supplies, it's truly the first step in becoming an independent artist. We will teach your child how to care for their own art supplies and the importance behind it.

Supplies

Art studios are a place where art is born and our space is a platform for just that. With beautiful natural light, tall windows and a spacious patio, students are immediately brought into a place of creation. Located directly behind Golden Moon Gallery in downtown San Mateo, close to Central Park and public transportation. We often take trips to the Japanese Tea Garden and Rose Garden or enjoy afternoons of painting on our patio.
