Hands on Slime

Together Let's Focus

Feel the Real World

Learning art involves observation, thinking, self reflection, and self-study on daily basis. 

We are happy to guide young people to observe the nature, to communicate with family and friends, and to play with art supplies. 

They will learn how to focus and fight against distractions. More important, they will learn how to appreciate beauty and friendship.
