Art class for children based on a series of techniques that I learned in Florence, Italy and more that I have acquired over 13 years as professional artist. 

The class integrates vocabulary in Spanish with the intention of fomenting the language and the cultural roots within a fun and creative environment.

I know that children excel and thrive when they feel seen and heard and the expression through art provides it.  

When making art a child is in a safe place to allow her or his thoughts and feelings to be projected with colour and shapes. 

Art improves a child’s emotional intelligence, ability to solve problems, facilitates neural connections and builds fine motor skills. 

I stongly believe that every child deserves to thrive and have a chance to express their emotions. 

Creative children are happy!
