WE PUT THE ART IN S.T.E.A.M.
The Avant-Garde Program at CR8space Art Studio is North Hollywood's premier source for
a comprehensive fine arts education.
Our students create beautiful pieces of art while mastering a variety of drawing and painting techniques. Unlike classes that require copying other artists, we put our students' imaginations to work and teach them to bring what they can envision to life. Our advanced students leave the course with a portfolio of original work suitable for art school admissions or submission to galleries.
Whether or not they intend to become professional artists, our students learn to use their "right brains" to approach problems in any field more creatively.
WHY STUDY ART?
It's great for the brain, especially a developing one! Though the role critical thinking plays in art is often underestimated, many studies show composing a painting is just as much an exercise in problem solving as setting up an equation or solving a puzzle (just ask our lead instructor; she's an artist and chemical engineer). Read more about the benefits of learning art below.
