more about JOY OF ART

discover art that explores the world and lets the imagination soar

The Children’s Art School was established with the belief that creating art is essential to every child’s cognitive and personal development. We have originated a way of teaching art based on how children learn and the role art plays in developmental stages. Our classes are small to encourage individualized discovery learning and exploration. The Children's Art School is a DPS Community Resources arts organization and has been featured in Colorado Art Educators Association’s, Collage.  

Children's Art School presents our Family Art projects for the Cherry Creek Arts Festival's Creative Station Artivity Avenue.

The Children’s Art School's JOY OF ART WINTER classes in drawing, printing and painting explore how to use art materials to enable young artists to find their own creative voices to share with the world.

JOY OF ART Registration is by phone or email.  For more information or a complete brochure, contact
