FALL & WINTER ART CLASSES

Paradise Art offers small group instruction in drawing, painting, and ceramic sculpture. Classes include beginner, intermediate and advanced levels. All classes have limited enrolment to permit personalized instruction and give each student a sense of direction in their work. Kids deserve more than arts & crafts - so we developed a program which gives them the opportunity to explore a variety of real art media in a creative setting. We encourage children to learn, exercise their imaginations and have fun through challenging yet age-appropriate concepts. Our Fall & Winter Classes in Drawing, Painting & Sculpture are 28 weeks in duration running from September to May.

We also offer a variety of Adult Art classes plus a unique Pre-School Art program. See links above.
