Kiddo Creative is an after school arts program which caters to a range of kids which is accessible through elementary schools and community centres. We are offering programs that commence moments after the school bell rings. Our programs provide both an excellent creative experience whilst providing after school care.
Our programming is accessible to all levels of youth creative, from the newly curious to those interested in taking their artistic skills to the next level.
Diverse Art Mediums, Age Appropriate Lessons
From drawing to painting, sculpture to mixed media, music and acting our instructors teach a wide variety of mediums every month. Each class is something new! With such diversity, your child will learn a little bit of everything. Specialty materials fees are included in the session price.
Our visual and musical arts curriculum is designed to engage your child’s enthusiasm for creative art projects while developing crucial motor skills, language development and creative risk taking. Curriculum and creative projects change each session, no two sessions are the same!
Our teachers are all accredited teachers with specialty in fine art education.
We run our art classes out of schools from 3-6pm and community centres around Calgary.
We run 8 and 10 session courses that range from 75-90 minutes.
We offer sibling discounts and friend referrals.
A portion of each students' registration in Art Club is donated back to their School Council or a portion is donated to kid focused community groups focused on engaging children in the arts.
