  • Mini Arts Honor Society (Grades 3-5)

    Our art-enriched program is full of challenging design projects and fun surprises intended to motivate students at this age level and to push their creative potential to the max.Examples: basic framing and art display techniques, sculpting, drawing, painting, weaving, watercolor, jewelry making and much more.  With the help of personal training, creative muscle takes shape. Our students become more independent, and we see a personal sense of individual style grow stronger. We continue to challenge our students to exercise their creative skills in other areas of their life.  
     
    Individual performance is greatly enhanced by a sense of safety and well-being. When students are in a safe and nurturing environment, they thrive and creativity flourish. Art is all about feeling the freedom to take risks, to explore the unknown, to trust your own judgment.  Because when you are free to dream, you find the power to create.
