Artist for Kids 27th Annual Paradise Valley School of Visual Arts

Every year, Artists for Kids hosts two weeks of Summer School of Visual Arts in Paradise Valley. Both the junior group (ages 8 to 12) and the senior class (ages 13 to 18) are paired with a professional artist who presents on their work throughout the week. The students work with Art Specialist Teachers to make art of their own in response to the presentations from the Visiting Artist. There are also blocks of recreation time where the students go canoeing, hiking, or sketch the gorgeous scenery that surrounds them.
