Kids' Painting

In the right atmosphere, painting becomes a powerful tool for supporting children, helping them grow into healthy confident adults.

At the CCE Painting Studio provides quality materials, a supportive structure, and caring experienced staff to create an environment that:

• Offers creative adventure and process
• Encourages spontaneous self-expression
• Respects each child’s individual needs
• Removes the pressure of performing

We believe that creativity is a tool that enhances children’s lives in many ways. The studio offers a safe space that minimizes comparison and criticism. As a result, children learn to trust their own inclinations, to freely express the richness of their world, and to respond with kindness to the critical judging voices within.  They learn to see creativity as play, adventure, and self-expression and to use intuition and spontaneity as the fuel of creation.

By painting in a studio that emphasizes these basic principals, children can develop confidence and self-esteem, with increased freshness and joyful participation in life.  We invite all children to come and experience the wonder of painting at the CCE Painting Studio.

NEW: We are going to teach summer classes for kids online! We hold the same philosophy as described above and will apply it to a home environment.
