Hidden Talent Art Studio offers art classes for kids as young as 2 year old to adults of all ages. Our goal as art instructors is to teach the fundamentals of fine art to help students build the technical skills they need by using traditional methods. At the same time, we encourage self-expression which fosters decision-making skills, imagination, and self-confidence.

Homeschool Art Class (Ages 5-12): 1 hour class
This class combines “Art Introduction” with “Art Essentials” lessons due to the wider age range so that siblings and friends of homeschool groups can attend the same class, while each student receives the appropriate attention based on their age and skill level. If you would like your group of 4 or more students to take a class, please call us to arrange a time and day.
