At The Art House,
Every student receives individualized attention. Students do no learn at the same pace and art is very personal, therefore, even when a group starts together each student advances at a different pace.
Beginners are specially sensitive to directions. We start at very slow pace and move according to the students needs and curiosity to make sure each experience is a positive one.
What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?
Every question is an opportunity for discovery and learning. We encourage openness and expression.
