"My son had been taking classes here for about two years now. He loves it and looks forward to his class each week. It's amazing how much he has learned. The progression in his drawing and thought process about how to draw has significantly increased. The classes build a strong innate foundation about art. Besides learning the different drawing technics they actually learn about the famous artists and the major styles in drawing. The teachers are highly skilled and friendly. They know how to teach in a fun way to keep the kids interested in art. If your child has any interest in art, I would highly recommend this place." Peter Dovjenco

After trying a free session, my son loves this program. We signed up the following week and she did a class on shading, contrast etc with diferent pencils as it's my sons favorite style. Also after class, she doesn't mind spending a few minutes for those extra little questions/help he wants. I highly recommend artgrid for any kids who are interested in art/drawing." - Mark Binette
