Studies show that early exposure to visual art promotes activity and development in the brain. Art lessons greatly encourage and nurture valuable life skills through fun, creative, learning activities. It starts with art!
Les Petits Painters offers art lessons to stimulate young people’s minds and develop them mentally, socially, physically (dexterity, coordination, observation), and emotionally.
Children will acquire skills through new techniques and processes using a wide range of tools, learn about new materials, and create projects that express their thoughts and personality.
Kids benefit greatly from art because creating art:
Develops their imagination;
Promotes their curiosity;
Improves their social skills when they make friends and get along with other kids;
Helps them express emotions;
Leads them to discover how to make something special from something ordinary;
Builds problem-solving skills;
Fulfills their desire to learn something new;
Teaches them how to search for solutions.
Testimonials and Feedback –
My son (age 4) loves going to Les Petits Painters.
Teresa has the most wonderful ideas with art. Each of her lessons are so well thought through with amazing creativity, structure and preparation, not to mention the beautiful artwork as a product for display at home from all the lessons. She and her helpers are always so patient with the students. She carefully considers everything, including seating arrangements, to maximise student engagement and learning opportunities.
Teresa also takes the time to write up a document after each artwork is finished with photos of the kids participating in the lesson. The document isn’t just about the photos; it has explanations of what the lesson is about, how to create the artwork and the skills that are invovled through the process of creating the artwork – it’s an amazing review of the lessons and most definitely a keepsake!
Highly recommend this art class!
“Thank you so much for your wonderful lessons with Eliyas. I meant every word I said on the (Facebook) review, you are truly amazing. I can feel your passion and you really care about each child’s development. Look at the improvement on Eliyas’s hand writing!! I believe you have a lot to do with it!” — Yolanda, mum of 5 yr. old Eliyas
“Thank you for teaching Lucas these past 2 years +. When he started, he would not even put dots on paper! Thank you for your patience & dedication, an art teacher like no other.” – Jaime, mum of Lucas
“Teresa is one of the best art teachers. She focusses on the child’s creativity and also shows them how famous artists saw art. She also helps us as parents understand how these artists viewed and brought different styles. My daughter, Sharanya, loves going to the classes and loves painting. We are thoroughly enjoying the classes 🙂 Teresa is helping children even during Covid19 lockdown through her regular mail and artwork. Thanks for being so wonderful. Highly recommend Les Petits!” — Padma, mum of 7 yr old Sharanya

“It was fantastic. Hannah said it looked hard but it was easy as you were explaining it. She also enjoyed painting a unicorn as she had never painted a unicorn before. Annabelle said that she really enjoyed doing the sky (blending colours). All the kids had a great time! They were engaged the whole time. Great experience and very worthwhile!” — Debbie, mum of Hannah, 5 yrs and Annabelle, 7 yrs at their joint art birthday party.
