Children’s Art Classes with Art By Mia

Good day my creative creatures!!!
I cannot believe that there are only two classes left to my six week run at La Casa Azul Bookstore. Thus far it has been an amazing and inspiring four weeks. Laughter, creativity, joy, passion, celebration and expression were just some of the toppings added to the elements. See the information below for the remaining classes. These classes are for the youth and i have extended the ages from 4-15 so more children can take advantage of this wonderful opportunity to learn about art and history in a safe and nurturing environment.
Use the links below to book your space per student and note the childs full name and class attending. Feel free to contact us for more information or questions. Small children must be accompanied by an adult.
Please bring an apron or smock for painting. All supplies included in class fee. To see previous art class videos please visit my youtube page at (Artbymia1) there you will see the Picasso in Me, Amate Bark Painting, Frida Rag Doll Art Class and more. Enjoy the videos and hope to see you in class.
