The Natural Joy of Creating


Children are naturally artistic and creative. They learn by playing and experiencing. When we give too many rules or expectations, we take away their element of play and learning through curiousity. The greatest creative minds let their creative spirit guide them—this is what we refer to as process art.

Our Tiny Picassos classes allow young minds to flourish and explore process art in a fun, nurturing, creative environment.
