Program Guides

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 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!
