Studio Sundays

 

 

Get ready for STUDIO SUNDAYS with Raising Artists!

 Raising Artists promotes meaningful artistic experiences that encourage creativity which allows children to follow their imaginations, passions, creative purpose, critical think, and explore self-expression. Our incredible Studio Sunday program has shown evidence in helping children learn to channel their feelings, take pride in their strengths, have the confidence to use their voice, and hone their artistic talents.

During our one-hour program, we’ll introduce your budding artist to all manner of artistic mediums, including crafting, drawing, painting, mixed media, sculpting, using a variety of different materials, to create unique masterpieces to take home!
