Creative Art Classes
Creative structure combined with ingenuity nutures the spiritual spark within each of us. Denise respects and nurtures the individual. She teaches in an environment which nourishes the imagination and fosters a love of learning and a sense of responsibility. Her unique curriculum gives equal attention to each child's emotional, intellectual and spiritual needs. She inspires a passion for excellence, making it possible for children or adults to learn their highest potential. This is an opportunity for sensitive creative children or adults to practice self-direction, self-discipline and good work habits which will enable them to be successful in any future setting.
Children study and create in a safe, caring environment where they feel free to learn and take chances without fear of failure. They develop the fundamental skills and ideas which are essential for a lifetime of creative thinking and learning. Denise will provide all hands-on materials that bring abstract concepts alive and help children to understand in a deep and meaningful way. Her unique and eclectic approach to art keeps the innate love of learning alive and teaches students how to not only create but to learn.
