Register for Art Intensive

Art Intensive  
is our Summer art experience for children and teens ages 10 and up. The program strives to challenge students by focussing on more complex concepts of traditional and contemporary art. Projects emphasize drawing and painting in our state-of-the-art studios. Past subjects have involved contemporary artists, art history, photography and multi-media to name only a few. Many students return year after year - so our program always involves new ideas and projects which only Paradise Art can do.

Outdoor Activities
Photography projects are weather and time dependant - and a complete itinerary will be provided on the first day of the program. 

Work in small groups  
Limited enrolment lets us encourage each child’s creative efforts and foster their interest in art. We specialize in creating age-appropriate art projects and giving personal attention to help every student achieve their potential. 

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. Let Art Intensive turn your child’s summer into a season of creative expression and artistic accomplishment. We encourage children to learn, exercise their imaginations and have fun through challenge and achievement. We use only professional quality art materials.  Egg cartons, toilet paper rolls, popsicle sticks and macaroni are simply not on our palette! All materials are provided.

Students will experience a variety of art media and techniques including:

Learn the essentials of drawing through a variety of materials. By working in small groups we are able to teach valuable skills, encourage each child’s creative efforts and foster their interests.

From colour theory to painting technique, children will exercise their imaginations and increase their ability of self-expression based on contemporary and historical concepts. 

Take advantage of Summer by improving your photography skills. Anyone can push a button, but what makes photography - art? Past photography projects have been incorporated into our other artwork - or simply mounted and Instagrammed for their own sake. Last year was amazing. Check them out on our Instagram and Facebook pages.
