“Every child is an artist.” – Pablo Picasso
“I would advise young artists to paint as they can, as long as they can.” – Claude Monet
Your child ends each day with a clutter of pencils, crayons, colored papers, wet paint brushes, a roomful of drawings and an installation of toys. Each morning your angel hurries to tell you stories s/he makes up from last night’s dream or the last story book read. Upon checking your child’s school stuff you see the blank pages of each textbook filled with doodles, colors, figures and shapes.
No doubt about it. You gave birth to an artist. With this realization, we know that you are going to need an artist’s mind and hands to help your child develop his/her artistic potential.
The Young Artists’ Studio (YAS) is a venue for young artists to learn art production at an early age. YAS is managed by art practitioners with a vision to develop young artists who will contribute to the art community in the near future. YAS believes that art is a powerful tool to influence communities, improve lives, and transform the society.
Since the early years in art history, the ‘studio’ has been the primary venue for brewing young artists. In fact, most famous artists have apprenticed in the studios of the prime artists before them. ‘Studio work’ is one important tradition that any young artist should be accustomed with.
