Art is the universal form of expression and its appreciated by people of all ages. Whether it is the actual creation of the project or just enjoying the finished masterpiece, art has a deep way of connecting people. The best way to introduce your young children to the fantastic world of artistic creation is to sign them up for fun classes that engage them in art or take them to cool galleries that they will actually appreciate. To get you started, here is a glimpse of the summer art scene for children in Atlanta.

Johns Creek Arts Center Summer Camps
This community art center is bringing special art programs this summer to kids of all ages from toddlers to teens. They offer music, theatre, jewelry, mosaic, cartoon, clay, and visual arts. Kids will learn how to create works of art from various art materials and supplies while making friends. Many of their current visual art camps this year feature themes from different countries like India, Africa, and Southeast Asia. Each one of these programs teaches children art, design, and a little bit of culture, which will round out the entire experience. Most of the classes are held at the John Creek Arts Center but some are held at John's Creek Presbyterian Church. You can find more at www.johnscreekarts.org.
