Celebrating the Creativity
of Young Artists
Kids are busy making art at LOAC all year-round! We offer spring, fall, and summer art programs for youth ages 6-12. Our engaging youth programs give kids an opportunity to spend time experiencing the creative process and to explore art media they may not have access to in the classroom. Summer art camps and after-school classes are taught by experienced artists, including art faculty at area colleges and universities. Studies have shown the process of creating art helps support young children in almost all areas of their development, including boosting confidence and self-esteem, improving fine motor skills and enhancing creative problem solving abilities, and providing a positive outlet to process experiences and deal with overwhelming emotions.
Encourage your child to engage their artistic side at the Live Oak Art Center!
