While your kids are having fun, they are also improving social and motor skills, personal expression, visual communication and application for digital skills. Studies show that children involved in the arts improve academically.
PAC instructors are great teachers, as well as professional artists in their associated mediums – so inspiring children, youth and adults alike comes naturally.
Need-based scholarships are available to all students who qualify.
