10 Reasons Why Arts Education is So Important for Kids

We are proud to offer early childhood arts education classes for children and their caregivers as an introduction to the arts. Our students, from newborns to six years old, are provided experiences in each arts discipline – dance, music, theater, and visual arts – in developmentally appropriate contexts. Classes encourage play, creativity, cooperation, attention, and provide caregivers with activities to continue at home.
