This past weekend my children got to experience Palette Kids art class in Philadelphia it is a art studio for kids. The art classes are given by Perry Milou a Philadelphia artist. The art class was lovely. Perry taught the kids about figures, and how to draw them. He had several assistants to assist the kids. Then he allowed the children to pick a project to make and create. I have to say I love the vibe of the studio. It was a real art studio with art that fosters creativity, not some pristine art space that is uninspired. The inspiration of the space allowed and beckons the children to imagine and create. Some kids did 3 d art, painting, clay, and jewelry.
When school are cutting art budgets. Children are no longer allowed to use really clay in our schools any more. The are using a commercial crayon company clay like product, which I find extremely disappointing in the public school system. At Palette Kids, Perry’s allows the kids to use really clay and create. Check out my sons project.
