Art Classes for Kids • Summer Art Camps • School Visits
‘Lynn’s art studio is such a gem in our community. Her passion for inclusivity and genuine creative expression shines through and sets her program apart from others. Both my boys flourished in her summer camp and we loved the art projects they brought home. I was also fortunate enough to provide a training session to Lynn’s staff so I know first-hand that she is committed to Positive Discipline, safety, and equity and she treats the children in her care with dignity and respect’.

We were delighted to invite Isaiah and his friends into our studio to learn how to silk screen t-shirts with artist Jeff Garcia, also known as The Mango Peeler! The shoot took place in 2013 at the Artscape Wychwood Barns and the show was premiered on Saturday September 21st, 2013, and Sunday September 22nd, 2013 @ 7:00PM. We were told that the episode is still being aired in several countries reaching hundreds of thousands of children around the world! We are very proud of this show and out chance to work with the phenomenal artist Jeff Garcia.
What we do…
The heart of our organization is to provide art classes and art camps for kids in a safe and nurturing space to explore their creativity and self-expression. We offer an artistic outlet for children ages 4 – 14 and grant a means of expressing feelings, strengthening self-esteem, developing healthy communication skills, interacting with positive role models, and encouraging innovative thinking.
We offer programming in Toronto, Halton, Hamilton and Niagara Region. Our main office and studio is conveniently located at the Artscape Wychwood Barns in Midtown Toronto. Our art camps are also offered at Artscape Youngplace at Shaw and Queen St. West.
Our Teaching Style…
Our art studio supports processed based art-making. Process refers to experience-driven child-directed art-making that is focused on exploration. This method has proven to be relaxing and allows children to express their feelings while developing creativity.
● Allows children to explore the materials intuitively
● Art classes that are open-ended, meaning there are no boundaries, limits or restrictions, allowing children to create their art freely
● Is child-centered, meaning giving the child a choice and doing activities based on the child’s interests
● An opportunity to explore trial & error and cause & effect
● Has no right or wrong
● Is unique, original and is entirely the child’s own choice
● Allows children to form ideas through their own discovery and exploration without restraints
