Description:  After serving the Howard County community for 13+ years, and a highly valued event each year at Columbia Festival of the Arts LakeFest, KidzArt is eager to continue to support the needs of our families during this unprecedented time — a time when creativity, relaxation and expression is needed more than ever! As a small business, we are truly grateful and appreciate the support of our families during this closure.

To best serve our families during this closure, we’ve launched an online program that mirrors our unique after school drawing instruction that your children already know and love. Classes provide a fun, much needed break for creativity in your new schedule. For the past 6 weeks our Winter Session families have been participating in our virtual program and Kidz Art has received great feedback!

Virtual Classes will be approximately 40-50 minutes and pre-recorded to allow your family to watch them at a time that is most convenient to you, with the added ability to pause, rewind and re-watch. When using this online model, the ability to “go back” is something students really liked. Our highly engaging classes are lead by KidzArt staff and can be beautifully completed with basic materials that most families already have at home (drawing utensil, paper and something to color with). An email with the link will be sent out each Monday!

An optional supply kit is included in your registration, pick up is required. The kit will include a new black sharpie, several pieces of heavyweight drawing paper, a piece of watercolor paper, a new set of 16 oil pastels, a new set of 12 watercolor pencils, a canvas banner and gift bag! We will use these special materials during the lessons each session, but they can also be completed with what you have at home. (If you register after May 18th, please contact to arrange for supply kit pick up)

VIRTUAL ART SHOWCASE: As an added bonus, each Friday at 3pm, you have the option to connect in our Zoom classroom for a LIVE, Virtual Art Showcase, where your young artist can share their artwork, connect with KidzArt instructors and other students. We will discuss the project of the week, any challenges, answer questions and discuss art words/techniques. This is totally optional and meant to be a fun way to connect!

We are so excited to open this opportunity to future KidzArt Families who are not currently enrolled in the spring session. We really hope you’ll join!
