My daughter is looking at an art book while the boys draw at art class. They take art at the same place the kids meet their theater group. This is the first year that they have taken the classes, though we had to opportunity to do it last year. Delaying it a year has been a decision I have really regretted because they have really gotten a lot out of it.
They have some of the same materials that they have at home, but the subtraction of the television and the electronic games seems to make the world of difference. They are just so much more focused at Ladybug Arts. Their teacher is great at giving them guidance as well. All in all, the extremely reasonable rate that our family pays has been well worth it.
The weekly classes only run from October to March. The schedule is perfect for us because summer activities don't get in the way. I look forward to their art show that will be held at the end of the season.
