Did you know that along with expressing creativity and developing a vibrant imagination, participating in visual arts classes at a young age enhance the perceptual skills and fine-motor control of children?

Visual Arts Programs for preschoolers and children at the Shadbolt will not only provide exposure to colour interaction and textures but can also be the start of a path to formalized training. There are also classes for families to explore their artistic side together.

Teens and adults will find that relaxed classes taught by professional artists are a perfect way to discover artistic personality whether participating at a beginner or experienced level.
