Our cozy studio is located in the heart of the Historic Heights neighborhood in a refurbished garage. Outfitted with full plumbing (bathroom and sink) and a double-split AC (a MUST in Houston!), our studio is designed for comfort. We have a gated outdoor space for movement breaks and often eat lunch under a canopy during summer camp.
the Courage to Take Creative Risks
The structuring of the Artopiatogo learning process encourages kids to embrace risk-taking and "mistakes" as opportunities.
Making independent creative choices helps children become great at problem-solving
The Importance of Self-Expression
Creative work encourages children to process and explore emotions. Our classes are geared to honor every student's journey of learning how to express themselves. Our goal is to help students discover the power of listening to the artist within.
Deeper Understanding through Practice
We encourage students to develop a foundational understanding of the art processes by breaking concepts into easy to manage, hands-on exercises that isolate specific skills. Understanding HOW the process works builds confidence and supports creative freedom
Interpersonal Skills + Respectful Communication
Whether in-person or in a zoom open house meeting, we want children to interact and engage with each other! These opportunities to share and discuss their work and listen to others share about their work develops respectful interpersonal awareness.
Learning to ask Questions
We strive for a learning atmosphere that is focused on exploration and celebrates asking questions. Our support allows children to learn about how to ask questions effectively and confidence, which sets them up to become advocates for themselves and their ideas
Our Program is Designed to Promote Personal Growth in Students of All Ages
