KIDS 8-12 yrs 

Vivid imagination of youths and rational thinking of adults, excellent memory and instant creativity, this amazing age has all the learning benefits you can imagine. Sometimes it's hard to believe how much a kid of this age can learn during one two-hour lesson.


​Only... if he or she is interested. Luckily, art history provides an endless source of interesting stories and objects, not to mention masterpieces of all kinds!  So after several years of experiments we developed a method, that combines practical art lessons with a kid-friendly study of art history.​


Each lesson is dedicated to some epoch and starts with a short lecture, briefly touching on philosophy, history, and art of that period.Then we focus on some art phenomena that happened during that time, and for the rest of the lesson we study it in practice.

Price options:

If you decide to sign up after the demo, the demo fee will be credited towards your tuition. You will be receiving monthly invoices.

For the missed classes, make ups are available upon request.
