The philosophy of children’s art classes at Station Gallery is centered on the exploration of our exhibitions, other artists and Big Ideas in the world around us.
Our courses are driven by our 21st Century Learning Model which connects art to things that are relevant and meaningful in the lives of SG kids.
We take a multi-dimensional approach that allows for a diversity of art-making processes, quality fine art materials and imaginative problem solving. We treasure individuality and providing Charismatic Arts Experiences in a friendly, supportive environment.
This may at times be a less traditional approach than expected, with depth of skills and concepts delivered hand-in-hand with technology to form engaging, contemporary and fun projects.
