more about JOY OF ART

discover art that explores the world and lets the imagination soar

The Children’s Art School was established with the belief that creating art is essential to every child’s cognitive and personal development. We have originated a way of teaching art based on how children learn and the role art plays in developmental stages. Our classes are small to encourage individualized discovery learning and exploration. The children’s Art School is a DPS Community Resources arts organization and has been featured in Colorado Art Educators Association’s, Collage. We are located in the University Park neighborhood


Ages for our classes are suggestions and all art materials are included. We register our students by phone and email inquiries. For a complete brochure and more information, contact 303 369-7956 or
