Art in Action believes that every child has a unique artistic expression to be discovered and developed. We are focussed on sparking the creativity in every child through inspiring visual art projects. As children create their own unforgettable works of art they learn new ways of perceiving and looking at the world around them. This art enrichment program fosters individual free thinking, risk taking and problem solving.
