Visual Arts Classes


“Every Child is An Artist”  – Pablo Picasso

Our small art classes provide individual instruction on technique and allow each student to learn and explore in a fun and empowering community. Students will connect mind and body, as they learn to visually communicate what they see, imagine and feel. Does your child have an idea or concept they want to explore or medium they want to learn? Our classes are flexible to support your artist and their creativity.

This is an innovative choice-based art program that offers students the opportunity to respond to their own ideas and interests through artmaking. Working at their own pace, students learn problem-solving, independent thinking, cooperative learning, and persistence through creative discovery. We will be exploring several art mediums such as acrylics, watercolor, textiles and wax, pastels, and charcoal.

What sets JPAS apart is the
practice of acknowledging and accepting
our own feelings and thoughts to help our
students be in the present moment
and allow them to have a better sense of self.


Our students learn to visually communicate
what they see, imagine and feel.
We challenge our students to
ignite and foster artistic expression
and their individual talents.


We work with the finest in the performing arts
industry from Broadway across the map to DFW.


We love expanding our existing program
to help reach more young minds and
quench their thirst for the arts while
empowering children to dig
deep, dive in, and have fun!


We focus on building our students
self-confidence and consciousness
because we believe inner
strength is a key to growth.
