ART CLASSES FOR KIDS

If Music is not your child’s passion, you have the opportunity to enjoy a broad range of art classes at CFMA--both online and, as soon as circumstances allow, onsite in our state-of-the-art facility in Houston.

We have found that, in every child, there is already an artist. If your child has held a pencil or a crayon in her hand, she has already begun her exploration of art. At CFMA, our online art classes help your child channel that interest and discover a world of unlimited possibilities.

With all those crayons, markers, pencils, paper that have piled up in your family's "miscellaneous drawer," we can revive the artist in your child.

Our Art Classes and Lessons come with a variety of significant benefits, especially for children:

Art nurtures creativity and problem-solving skills. That’s a no-brainer. In art, children create something--a drawing, a painting, or a sculpture--from nothing or from an idea they are developing.
Creating a piece of art is like a project from start to finish. With the guidance of their instructor, kids learn how to ,use discipline to work systematically and manage their art project from start to finish.
For young children in particular, creating art is also very beneficial in developing fine and gross motor skills. Remember when you were taught how to write by hand and how hard that was? Moving a pencil or paintbrush on a canvas to create meaningful lines and shapes requires great brain-hand coordination and the ability to control arm, hand, and finger movement.
Creating art boosts your child’s confidence and a sense of pride in personal achievement. At CFMA, we take this to a whole new level by offering two annual Houston Art Shows, where our Art Students have the opportunity to proudly display their work from their art classes for family, friends, and the general public.
Creating art is incredibly enjoyable! It’s your child’s time away from the constant stream of negative news we hear these days, and a journey into a beautiful and peaceful fantasy world.
Point 1 to 3 above combine to improve your child’s academic performance in school.
Sculpting, drawing, and painting also develop a child’s visual and spatial learning skills.
Creating art improves mental focus and attention span.
Let your child discover their creative genius! The journey starts today!
