My daughters have really enjoyed Art School after school programming at the Art Garage! As a family with two parents who work into the evening, it is such a relief to know that my girls are in good hands for school pick up, creating something new, and receiving quality care and instruction.

After a semester of instruction, my youngest daughter (who never had an interest in art before) told me she now feels "good at art!" My oldest daughter identifies as a bit of an artist, so she's truly getting a depth of time and instruction on certain techniques there there that isn't always afforded in her public school art program. We have tried other after school programs, and my girls, who are incredibly particular about such programs, have only loved Art School at The Art Garage! Plus, we now have a slew of incredible art creations that either have an honorable place on my fireplace mantel or can be gifted as incredible birthday /holiday presents for family!
Thank you Art Garage for your amazing programming!
