Youth Art Works

Ages 5-13

Offered Saturdays during the school year

So much fun they don’t know they’re learning! Pratt’s youth program is designed to foster an appreciation of art for students ages 5 – 13.  Pratt introduces students to a variety of materials and artistic concepts to evoke their curiosity and to hone their natural creativity. With an emphasis on exploration, professional artists teach students in a fun, relaxed environment where they can express their creativity and gain self-confidence. The techniques developed at Pratt do not stop here; students utilize these new skills artistically, academically, and interpersonally.
