Art Classes for Kids
The CAC is pleased to announce that, through a generous grant by Wells Fargo, it will be providing a monthly children’s art class, hosted by Kim Bavington and ART CLASSES FOR KIDS.
For over two decades, Bavington and her dynamic ART CLASSES FOR KIDS staff have brought drawing, painting and sculpting for kids in our community through their group art classes, private lessons, art parties and art camps. Their progressive programs have inspired thousands of kids and now are even nurturing the creative talents of their children.
Bavington said it is this passion for fostering creativity in all types of kids that keeps their staff excited. “Their passion to keep learning about art keeps them fresh, and their skills combined with enthusiasm is what inspires young artists to want to learn more about art,” Bavington said. “With their creative methods and determination to teach about the past and their excitement to teach about what is current in art, they hope to plant a seed to encourage future generations to think creatively.
