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 Fall 2019 session begins September 18 and runs through December 11. Registration is $100 for the semester.  The registration fee covers the cost for all art materials as well as a snack.

I Made It! is a weekly camp held during the summer. A different art 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. Registration for the 5-day camp is $100 per child. The registration fee covers the cost of all art materials as well as a daily snack.

Scholarships for ArtStart and I Made It! are available for eligible students. Contact us for scholarship information and an application.
