According to https://www.pbs.org/parents/thrive/the-importance-of-art-in-child-development art is beneficial to children's development, from motor skills, language development, and decision making, to improved academic performance. These fun and interesting classes are a great way to get your children involved in different mediums of art and interested in the process of developing artistic abilities.
There are more art classes and shows for all ages happening at The Art Depot at the Clifton Train Station all year. Look for the 9th Annual Colors of Copper Art Show and Wine Tasting in November. If you would like to participate in the event contact Pamela for information on submissions.
