Kids Love Our Fun & Creative Workshops!

All summer long and for special school-year weeks, we enrich our world-class classical drawing and painting curriculum with engaging lessons in clay and paper sculpture, art history, figure drawing, portraiture, cartooning, and much more! Whether it's your first time at Art Steps or you're already stepping toward mastery, there's always something new to learn!

Calling all artists, ages 4-18! Balance the school year with engaging creativity! Kids use a variety of media to sharpen classical skills through whimsical projects. Fun meets focus with single-day and multi-day workshops for every budding young artist. Students hone drawing, painting, and sculpting skills, and hand-craft keepsakes, holiday gifts, and other seasonal treasures. As fall days get shorter, a variety of workshops keep the light of inspiration glowing. Enrollment opens in the Fall!
