Where are we going today?
Who is ready to get creative! At San Francisco Children's Art Center, it's ALL about getting creative, expressing yourself, and having fun!
This colorful art center offer a range of classes, as well as drop in sessions, for kids up to 12 years. The classes are geared towards specific age groups too, so you can make sure that your kids get age appropriate experiences!
For those from 22 months to 5.5 years, there are three classes that they can enjoy on a weekly basis. The youngest age group can enjoy classes where parents and children enjoy the benefits of art-making merged with early childhood development, then they can move onto the next classes where they can learn to attend independently!
There are classes where the art can be inspired by nature, and classes where sculptures can be created out of wood, wire, paper, and other fun materials.
Kids can create books of different shapes and sizes where characters can come to life, or they can learn the art of pottery and clay shaping.
If you want to just drop in to the one class, just have a look at what classes are running, and head on over to one of them to get a taste of what the San Francisco Children's Art Center has to offer!
The great thing about art is that there is no wrong answer! Kids can express themselves however they like, and create whatever they like!
