Art Needs Freedom

Art Needs Freedom is dedicated to EVERY CHILD having access to art, creativity and living fully self expressed.

Teaching through… 

DISCOVERY – PLAY – EXPLORATION – CREATIVITY – SELF EXPRESSION – BALANCE

Class Description

Classes are focused on igniting the imagination, activating creativity and nurturing each student’s unique self expression.

This is not a traditional art class, these classes are specially designed to work on a one-on-one level enhancing or encouraging each student to discover their unique talents and creative expression. Each class is thoughtfully structured, classes are co-created and interdependent to be flexible and in flow with each students needs and growth from week to week. Though a variety of mediums and techniques are introduced, each student gets to create from a place of discovery, play and exploration, while connecting more deeply with the inner self and building confidence.
