The Little Artist was founded on the idea that early childhood exposure to art and art-making helps kids with their emotional connections, motor skills and creative problem solving.
As a mother with a background in the visual arts, Sandra Huh wanted to share her love of Printmaking and Photography with her own son. When she became a mother, she saw how the tactile elements of creating art with her young son helped his motor skills, hand-eye coordination and concentration. Her mission is to provide a supportive environment where young kids can create art using traditional methods and skills.
THE FUTURE WE SEE
Making art doesn't have to be a complex process. All little artists have the ability to create wonderful art pieces. The Little Artist serves local young artists from the ages of 3 to 12 years old. We provide classes and studio space for young artists to come in and develop their creativity, motor and problem solving skills in an supportive and fun environment.
