Kids Art Camps

Our kids art lessons teach children to see the world through the eyes of an artist and allow them to unlock their creativity and vision. We teach children to use color, recognize style and have fun. Children learn to use pastels, watercolor, tempera paint and magic markers. By learning how another artist creates a unique approach to art, children begin to form a style of their own. Other lessons at our Maryland art school teach children how to draw their favorite cartoon characters and even make up characters of their own.  Contact us to sign up today!


We will be offering eight Friday morning camps this summer to be held from 9:00 a.m. to 12 noon. These camps are for ages 7 and older and will be taught by Maria Horwitz Parsons.
