Art is a language all its own. When children draw, paint, print, sculpt, or mold a piece of clay, they integrate the fundamentals of line, pattern, color, texture and value into their vocabulary. Let your child explore this fantastic frontier and let their imaginations run wild.

Ongoing Programs

Throughout the school year:

Classes for kids and teens at ASLD enhance art education programs at school, or they can fill a void if art programs aren't available for your child. Our youth classes teach art fundamentals in an open, non-competitive studio environment, and introduce each student to the gift of art. Our professional art educators are experienced in teaching kids about the essentials of art.

Procedural Agreements for Fall/Spring Youth Classes

Because we care about the safety of your children, parents/guardians must escort their children to and from their assigned studio. Please be sure your child arrives on time for class and is picked up promptly.  For youth aged 11+, parents/guardians have the option to sign a waiver form allowing children to sign themselves in and out of the classroom.

***Please note, your student’s classroom will open 5 minutes before the class begins.  Please wait until that time to allow the instructor to set up.

To ensure that everyone has an enjoyable class experience, disruptive behavior will not be tolerated. At the discretion of ASLD, disruptive students may be expelled without refund. The disciplinary procedures are:

  • Disruptive behavior will be addressed by the classroom teacher.
  • Chronic disruptive behavior will be documented and student will be sent to the office. If necessary, parents will be called and will be asked to pick-up their child for the day.
  • Extreme disciplinary problems, including fighting, bullying, or other disruptive behavior, may result in expulsion.
