Welcome to Theo Art School!

Theo Art School also encourages students to pursue their dreams of art and offers financial help to those in need. We believe every child should have the advantage of a quality fine art education. We keep our tuition as low as possible and we offer full scholarships. There are no additional charges to tuition, and all art supplies are included. Whether you're interested in Art Classes for Kids, Art Classes for Adults, Summer Art Camps, Art Workshops, or just looking for a new hobby, Theo is the place for you. We are open all-year around. Our studios are located at Frances Leach High Prairie Arts and Science Complex. With ample parking lot and a very safe environment, parents and students get a great Art experience.Theo Art School enjoys an educational partnership with many local elementary schools offering after-school classes at schools in both Bismarck and Mandan for the last 11 years.After school art programs are a great way for children to further their artistic expression outside of public/private school. Children who learn to work with their hands are more likely to do better in other academic programs by achieving problem solving skills applicable to other areas of their education. No other fine arts organization offers year-round arts classes. No other fine arts organization offers free classes and full scholarships. We are part of the Community, and we are very humble to be able to Share the Love of Art.

AFTER SCHOOL CLASSES AT ELEMENTARY SCHOOLS

 

INTRODUCTION TO OUR AFTER SCHOOL ART CLASSES PROGRAM

STARTING-MONDAY JANUARY 12

TIMES: 3:05 PM-5:00 PM
AGES: 6 AND UP
COST: $30.00 MEMBERS $35.00 NON MEMBERS

Welcome back to school. Like you, Theo Art School is starting its 2015 year with a lot of excitement and anticipation. Theo after school classes are getting ready to start. If your children have not had the opportunity to experience our after school classes, I hope we can change that!

This is Theo Art School's 11th year working with local schools. As school art programs become more limited, Theo can provide the opportunity for students to continue learning about and making art in the convenience of their own school. Our qualified instructors -- inspirational artists themselves --bring everything needed for the class and insure that each child has the opportunity to discover what great things they can accomplish using a variety of mediums.

We believe every child should have the advantage of a quality fine art education and do everything we can to keep tuition low and all art supplies are included in the tuition fee. In addition, Theo Art School offers full scholarships available to students that are recommended by school counselors and social workers.

If you are interested in learning more or scheduling a class (or classes!) I welcome the opportunity to meet with you. I can be reached during office hours 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., Monday through Friday, at 222-6452 or by email at theo_art_school@hotmail.com. You are also welcome to visit our school at the Frances Leach High Prairie Arts & Science Center!
Sharing the Love of Art !

School art programs are becoming more and more limited, but that's not the case at Theo Art School. We offer students, ages 6-17, the opportunity to learn about and make art after school.

After school art programs are a great way for children to further their artistic expression outside of public/private school. Children who learn to work with their hands are more likely to do better in other academic programs by achieving problem solving skills applicable to other areas of their education. Children have a great time exploring artistic possibilities. Art projects start with a background of Fine Art and through a foundation of traditional and experimental techniques, possibilities are endless. They are respected, treated and spoken to as budding artists and are given just the right balance of direction and openess to explore.

Theo Art School have enjoyed an educational partnership with many local elementary schools offering after-school classes at schools in both in the Bismarck and the Mandan area. Our instructors mission is to continue inspiring all of our kids! For Art to continue growing at school, at home and in our community!

With great instructors, inspirational artists, we insure that all children have the opportunity to discover what great things they can accomplish. Whether it's sculpting, using oil paints, pastels, or creating art pieces, our mission is to provide a dynamic, nurturing environment that encourages children to discover their unique creative talents. We believe every child should have the advantage of a quality fine art education. That's why we keep our tuition as low as possible and we offer scholarships. There are no additional charges to tuition, and all art supplies are included in the tuition cost of each class.

THE FACTS

1.Theo Art School offered full scholarships to students that were recommended by school counselors and social workers. Art programs are known to improve academic achievement and decrease the tendency towards delinquent activities . This past year and in previous years, Theo Art School worked closely with school counselors, and agencies that work with "at-risk" children.

2.Recent registrations for our classes and summer camps showed that a quite number of students that attended our classes and camps this year have the ability to speak a foreign language. Because art programs involve communication, interpretation and understanding of complex symbols similar to mathematics and foreign languages, our programs often help children with these subjects. Learning these skills helps to develop high order analytical skills as well as skills of evaluation and synthesis.

3.Our summer camps offered a variety of activities that gave campers an opportunity to interact with local Artists, expressed themselves through Yoga, and to learned about other cultures and their art. They got inspired to become more creative and to pursued their love for Art. Many of Theo's art programs let children regularly use different skills in turn making them very dynamic and versatile. This helps children form positive attitudes about themselves and others while building self esteem.

4.Theo Art School enjoys an educational partnership with many local elementary schools offering after-school classes at schools in both Bismarck and Mandan that had successful offered for the last 10 years. Extra time allotted in after-school art classes gives children more time to get involved. This gives latent capabilities of children more time to shine. This in turn allows children to learn to set higher standards of achievement. They begin to understand how to focus for longer periods of time which results in the road to excellence.

No other fine arts organization offers year-round fine arts classes. No other fine arts organization offers free classes and full scholarships.
