To us, art is more than an after-school activity-- it is means of self expression unlike any other. At Kimmy Ma, we teach kids ages (5+) how to launch their creative minds through medium-based art classes. Paying close attention to the fundamentals, we explore different styles and techniques of fine art, all the while encouraging personal growth and creative voice. Master the delicate strokes of watercolor or learn the practice of intricate charcoal drawings!

Private lessons with Mrs. Ma available.
This gallery showcases serious young artists (6th graders-HS) who have been with our Studio's private & group instructions for past 2-4 years, with Mrs. Ma. Our young talents with strong work ethics and self motivation are ready to prepare a compelling portfolio. Many begin their preparation 1-2 years before audition, in addition to after 2 years of basic medium/technique training. These art works demonstrate young artists' dedication and hard work to create original concepts while using exceptional understanding in techniques. Portfolios are thoughtfully developed in observations & imagination categories to show originality & creativity, in both found objects in mixed mediums and in fine arts mediums. Art theory and creative discussions further prepare our art learners to articulate confidently in their visual essays and in auditions & on-site practical exams. Our young artists are mentored, prepared and focused, as they launch their creative minds! Portfolio sizes up to 14x28.
We are open 7 days a week during the school year with selective studio recess and major holidays. No Walk-In during instructions.
