​​​Artists for Kids offers After School Art classes for students each Fall, Winter and Spring term. All art supplies and materials are included in the course fee. Taught by art specialist teachers and assisted by secondary art students, our classes provide students the opportunity to further their artistic ability and foster positive attitudes towards the visual arts. Our classes run in various schools across the North Shore, and we proudly host an end-of-term student exhibition at the Gordon Smith Gallery.
