Encourage your budding Picasso at LOAC!
Whether getting hands-on with finger paints, drawing with sidewalk chalk, creating a collage with pictures from a magazine, or simply coloring in a coloring book, children are happy when creating art.
Enrolling children in art programs may be one of the most important steps a parent can make to nurture the growth of their child. Art is a valuable tool for discovering, exploring, and interpreting the world. Art programs not only expose children to the benefits of the arts, they help children succeed in school and in life.
Art promotes creativity. It is an activity that can engage all five senses. It builds fine motor skills and helps children build problem-solving skills. It helps kids connect with other children. And most importantly, art allows a child to express and process their feelings and emotions in a safe, reflective way.
The Live Oak Art Center encourages young artists to celebrate creativity and love for the arts. We proudly offer year-round art programs for children ages 6-12, including our ArtStart After School Art Program and I Made It! Summer Youth Art Camp.
ArtStart classes are held on Wednesdays from 3:30 p.m. to 5:00 p.m. The Spring 2020 ArtStart classes will be divided into two sessions. Session 1 will begin March 4 and run through April 1. Session II will begin April 8 and run through May 6. ArtStart classes are free and open to the public, but space is limited. Registration is required to attend.
ArtStart Jr. classes are held once a month and are only for artists 6 years or younger. Each artist must be accompanied by an adult the entirety of the class. Classes are free and registration is required. For information on upcoming ArtStart Jr. classes, view the event calendar on our Events & Classes page.
I Made It! is a weekly art camp held during the summer. A different project is completed each day and all projects are taken home at the end of the week. Campers work with a variety of mediums and all experience levels are welcome.
Scholarships for I Made It! summer art camps are available for eligible students. Contact us for scholarship information and an application.

I loved everything about art camp. I got to make my very own Deadpool mask. Even the snacks were good!
