Workshops

Children’s Workshops The arts enrich our lives in many ways. They can help us understand history and culture, calm and excite us, they can even enhance our cognitive and perceptual skills, helping us solve problems in other areas of our life. And what better time to start experiencing art than when you’re young! My children’s workshops are designed to give kids an introduction to the basics of art, while teaching them hands on techniques that working artists use every day.

Each workshop includes:

  • a focus on a primary subject or technique
  • creating a painting from beginning to completion
  • fun, noncompetitive environment
  • step by step instruction
  • all necessary supplies

~Each workshop is 1 day long, 1.5 hr to 2.5 hrs, depending on age group

Location: York County Center for the Arts, Edmund Lewandowski Classroom, 121 E. Main Street, Rock Hill, SC
Fee: $55 per student per workshop  [$50 per student for multiple siblings]
*a non-refundable $25 deposit is required to hold your child’s registration, the remainder is due first day of class
