Our Mission

Art Center for Kids offers a wide range of unique art and design classes created just for youth in grades 4 through 8. Teaching skills such as critical thinking, innovation and visual literacy, our classes help kids learn to solve problems creatively, find new ways of expression and become designers of their own worlds.

Art Center for Kids Sunday classes meet for seven-week sessions held Sundays from 1 to 4 p.m. at Art Center's two Pasadena campuses. We also offer one-day family workshops on Sundays and intensive five-day workshops during summer. Our classes are small—with no more than 15 children per class—allowing our students to have personalized, one-on-one attention from our distinguished faculty.

Providing young people with opportunities to use art and design to think critically and broadly can inspire and change lives. This freedom to express oneself and embark on a lifelong journey of self-discovery is vital to the Art Center for Kids mission.
