See examples of some incredible work from our toddler and elementary-aged students! Note the variety of materials, subject matter, and implementation. Our student-artists wow us every day.


Video Demos

We've all had to be creative while we conduct our daily lives from home. Luckily, our students and teachers know a little about creativity! Here are some examples of video demos created by CSSMA art faculty to keep kids engaged and making art during this unparalleled time.

Our Philosophy in Art Education

In our process-oriented art program, we believe learning happens through open-ended creation that allows for random occurrences, improvisation, and exploration. Our classes focus on the individual student’s interests and curiosity while encouraging experimentation and play. Our focus on process celebrates the creative genius of children, empowering them and building confidence that stretches beyond the art studio.

As children mature, our experiential program gradually incorporates instruction in the more technical aspects of art-making, but always with the emphasis on developing the individual’s unique artistic process.
