Introduced to the Capital District in 2008, KidzArt, an international art enrichment program for all ages, will now be serving students from Averill Park to Saratoga Springs through three franchise units. KidzArt is a portable art program that brings certified instructors and all materials to schools, camps, clubs, recreation programs or other requested locations.
The growing interest and expansive geographic territory will be covered through three separate operations. The Saratoga County class locations vary, currently including Chango Elementary School, Arongen Elementary School, King of Kings Lutheran Church, Charlton Heights and Saratoga Independent School.
KidzArt provides drawing-based instruction for students of all ages, including adult classes. The program offers a creative outlet that encourages self-expression, creativity and right-brain thinking in a safe and relaxing environment. New curriculum is constantly being developed so students will never repeat a project.
In addition to after-school art programs, KidzArt offers classes for preschoolers, teens, adults and senior citizens. Parks and recreation programs, PTA fundraisers, birthday parties and in-school field trips are also available. Summer camps with different themes will be offered for children age 4 to 12 beginning the week of July 15 through August 23 at various locations.
Megan Klein, the owner of the new Saratoga County KidzArt, is a New York state certified K-12 special education teacher whose children have attended KidzArt classes since 2009. She will be serving Ballston Lake, Burnt Hills, Clifton Park and Saratoga.
"We're excited to fulfill the growing need for after-school art enrichment and art instruction for students of all ages,” Klein said. “Individually, our franchises will continue to offer quality art programs and be better-equipped to serve the growing number of students, families, schools and partners with whom we work."
Founded in 1998, KidzArt/Art Innovators is an international art enrichment franchise company that helps art students from 2 to 102 explore their inner artistic potential. Through after-school classes, camps, birthday parties and fundraisers, KidzArt offers a diverse, multicultural, multimedia drawing and fine arts curriculum. KidzArt's "no mistakes" philosophy encourages students to try new things, explore their creativity, and overcome their inhibitions or obstacles in order to grow and learn. The Palette Up Art Soirees are art instruction parties for adults that combine art with fun, relaxation and socializing. No art experience is needed.
Franchising since July 2002, KidzArt now has franchised units throughout the United States, Canada, China, India, Indonesia, Malta, the Middle East, the Philippines, Singapore, South Korea and Thailand.
