KIDS CLASSES

Whether you are new to Little Art House or you've been creating with us since we opened our doors in Hillsboro Village, we've got the perfect classes for you!

 

OUR APPROACH

OUR MISSION is to cultivate a learning environment for people of all ages to imagine, explore and create. OUR VISION is to bring creative opportunities to artists of all ages and levels across Tennessee.

As teachers in the public school system for years, we saw access to art and funding of the programs start to dwindle. We also saw a need for small, personalized class environments offering consistent classes with qualified teachers. At Little Art House, we are set up as a resource in Nashville to grow with your child from baby sensory classes to portfolio classes to help your senior prepare an AP portfolio.

P.S. Parents, we've got amazing classes for you too whether you are looking to learn a new skill or have a night out with friends. Check out our Adults classes!

 

WHAT MAKES US DIFFERENT

SMALL CLASSES. We keep our classes little by design so your child benefits from a personalized learning environment. Classes are limited to 8 seats. (Tip: book in advance! The word is out & we are starting to fill up quickly!)

QUALIFIED TEACHERS. All teachers have a degree in Art Education, Fine Art, or Child Development and have experience working with students of all ages.

PERSONALIZED INSTRUCTION. Whether your child is working on the same project as other kids in the class or individualized projects in our Portfolio Classes, our approach is the same. Success is not always measured in the finished product but through the process of a fresh approach and new techniques learned along the way.

CONSISTENT CLASSES & MULTIPLE OFFERINGS. Our classes are weekly so your child can get into the rhythm of his or her creative process from drop-in classes on the weekend to weekly morning or after-school classes. Also, check out our Homeschool Classes, available now!
