Watch your budding artists’ creativity soar with fun, interactive and inspiring fine & creative art lessons

geared toward ages 6 to 11! Fun and engaging games will be played too!


Each month is a new theme and the lessons are carefully crafted to enhance the imagination

while growing artistic skills and abilities.

Each lesson invokes the creative spark within each student and encourages students to harness

their own unique and individual artistic flair and style.


Be amazed at how quickly your child’s self-belief and confidence grow as they explore drawing, collage,

painting: watercolour and acrylic, pastels, paint markers, sculpture, pen & ink, fabric art, and printmaking!

Why is imagination important to kids?


Imagination allows kids to develop creativity, problem-solving and other important life skills.

Adults should encourage imaginative creativity for kids wherever possible.


Giving kids opportunities to use their imagination helps with many aspects of development,

from social skills to motor functions.

Why is art important to kids?


Art engages children's senses in open-ended play and supports the development of cognitive,

social-emotional, and multisensory skills.


As children progress into elementary school and beyond, art continues to provide opportunities

for brain development, mastery, self-esteem, and creativity.

Ellie has been in Tracey’s art club since last fall and loving every minute! Her excitement overflows every Art day as we see her bubble over with ideas to express with that days theme. She’s had the opportunity to work with many different mediums, with Tracey’s guidance along the way to encourage confidence and free exploration of each one. Ellie’s creative expression and ability to communicate her ideas is not limited to only art, the skills she’s learning translate to many other areas of her life. We are excited to watch her grow her skill set and are excited to see where it takes her! Thank you Tracey for your talent and ability to expand young minds through art.

My daughter has really enjoyed going to Tracey’s After School Kids Club. Each week is a fun and engaging theme that fosters her love of art. Tracey is a wonderful teacher who creates an atmosphere that encourages imagination and creativity. Our daughter comes out of each class with a big smile on her face and proud of the artwork she made
