Philosophy

The philosophy at THE PLACE FOR ART is that art is a process rather than a product.  Once a child or adult begins to explore art, there is no turning back or stopping, since art becomes a passion.  At THE PLACE FOR ART, students work in a non-threatening, stress-free environment.  The young students come after school or on Saturday mornings full of excitement and energy. With class sizes limited to 6 students, each child is able to receive personal attention in an art studio setting. 

Classes for adults are held in the evenings after a sometimes very stressful, mentally exhausting work day.  Most adult students find that an evening spent involved in art at THE PLACE FOR ART is soothing, calming, rejuvenating, and therapeutic. 

Classes at THE PLACE FOR ART are designed and instructed by K Smith, an internationally renowned pencil artist and art educator.  K Smith brings a wealth of over 30 years teaching experience in Canada, The United Kingdom, and The Bahamas.
