Art Express

Teachers: Art education majors, supervised by School of Art faculty.

Children create arts and crafts through a variety of media in a fun and exploratory atmosphere. Every semester, new lessons with a new theme are designed and taught with an expressive and multicultural approach to let children use their imagination and to create new projects.
