Welcome to Playful Palette!

 

Playful Palette focuses on teaching children to draw, paint, and sculpt through demonstration and
a step-by-step process. Children will learn the basics of color theory, design, and traditional use
of materials. Weekly classes will expose students to a wide variety of material-mastery
techniques, artistic concepts, and historical events.

The development of foundational skills for pre-school and elementary students is crucial. Many
individuals believe that creativity happens without instruction -- that artistic creativity comes forth
naturally from a child. However, Playful Palette believes true creativity comes forth when mastery
of core skills is combined with original thought. We will help children develop the skills, tools, and
confidence to continue participating in and appreciating the arts throughout their lifetimes.
