Art Classes for Kids While You Shop


It's time to start shopping for fun, new summer clothes, Mom. But visiting your favorite stores, trying on armfuls, and waiting in check-out lines make your kids impatient, and your shopping experience ends up being unsuccessful.

Now both you and the kids can love your shopping trips. While you shop 'til you drop, the kids can paint, draw and create with Art Smarts! For two hours, they'll participate in projects and receive quality art instruction that is entertaining and stimulating. Their creativity will reach new heights with one, three or five classes! Located conveniently in the Microsoft Store in the Fashion Valley Mall, you'll have a whole new wardrobe by the end of their art session! Don't have shopper's remorse! When you buy one of these offers, 10% will benefit a local elementary school!

My daughter has been doing art with Art Smarts for almost a year. She loves it and comes home with the most amazing pieces of art. This camp will be great because I can drop off the kids while I get some shopping time!
