Vision Gallery

Vision Kidz Program

Supported by:

City of Chandler, Arizona

The Vision Gallery offers its VISION KIDZ Programs in a variety of mediums. All classes are taught by professional artists interested in promoting the arts in education. All of our classes are underwritten by individuals, corporations and grants underwriting. The classes are offered to the Phoenix metropolitan community free of charge to the participants.

The kids who participate in the Vision Gallery’s VISION KIDZ Programs come from all areas of the Valley and represent a wide array of diverse backgrounds. Our program curriculum is designed to promote diversity in arts application, featuring workshops in drawing, watercolor, batik, ceramics, and every medium imaginable. Our workshops are designed to inspire a child's creativity and set an example of how art can be applied to our daily lives.

The VISION KIDZ Program provides children the opportunity to work with a professional artist and create a piece of art that is representative of their creativity. It gives them the opportunity to go home with an artwork in hand and a better understanding of the creative process.

All workshops are taught on Saturdays at 10 AM and 1 PM. Please call the Gallery at 480-782-2695 to register your child for up to three workshops, which are offered free to the community.

Each parent may register a child for up to three workshops. Workshops offer appropriate arts curriculum for students between the ages of 6 and 14 years of age. A parent or guardian is required to attend the workshop with their children. Only students registered for the workshop will be admitted to the classroom. If your child is unable to attend a scheduled workshop, please call at least 48 hours in advance so a child on the waiting list can be admitted to the class. It is important that we fill each workshop to capacity, therefore, last minute cancellations or no shows will result in withdrawal from future workshops and cancellation of registrations.
