Art Classes

Art is the process or product of deliberately arranging elements in a way that appeals to the senses or emotions. It encompasses a diverse range of human activities, creations, and modes of expression, including music, literature, film, sculpture, and paintings. The meaning of art is explored in a branch of philosophy known as aesthetics.

Alla Breve academy is focused on the colloquial term for education with a primary focus on the visual arts, illustration, painting, and sculpture. Introducing art to children has a number of benefits ranging from improving creativity to increasing self-confidence. Art will help develop a child’s creativity, imagination, cognitive skills, and much more. Children who regularly participate in a comprehensive art program are four times more likely to be in a math or science fair, and four times more likely to win an award for writing, according to research published by Canadians for the Arts.
