Art Smart has a wide age range of students who attend for a variety of reasons. We have mommies who come to de-stress. We have adults who are frustrated artists , and those who have regretted not attending formal art lessons when they were much younger . They are now finding time to deliberately do art since many are recognizing it's therapeutic effect in our fast-paced and stressful lifestyles.
Kids can be stressed as well when we bombard them with our academic standards, foregoing the creativity that God has instilled in each person . We all have an ability to create, to express ourselves , for others, it's through lines and colors. Art Smart currently has a handful of 4 year-old children who come to paint, draw and do art on a once or twice a week basis . This age range (4-6 years old ) is the best time to start the kids because they have no inhibitions . They are more in tune with their creativity and imagination . They like to play and allow room for mistakes , and that makes it easier to teach them . They are sponges, ready to absorb the techniques , principles and lessons. Their strokes become automatic as they are exposed to art earlier in life .
