Visual Arts Programs at the All Children's Art Center

A Different Approach to Art Education

Our  programs are designed to maximize students' creativity, adaptability and problem solving skills. Our art classes are not formulaic; students will never be asked to follow along with teacher to create a predetermined project. At ACAC, we believe that a child only unlocks their full potential when they have the opportunity to explore their own imaginations, and confront their own stumbling blocks in their creative process. Our goal is to build self-confidence through divergent thinking.
