​Welcome to Color, Construct, Create Studios, art classes for kids of all abilities!  Our after school/weekend classes are designed to address sensory and motor skill development, while teaching basic and intermediate art concepts.  Lessons are designed and taught by artists with a background in Special Education, Occupational Therapy, Physical Therapy and more.

We have been working with children with/without special needs for over 15 years.  It brings us so much joy to see our artists grow in their knowledge or art, develop their fine and gross motor skills, expand their sensory horizons, by creating beautiful masterpieces.  We are happy to be able to share our experiences with you.
