Vision Kids Program

Vision Gallery hosts VISION KIDS, is a series of art classes taught by professional artists for kids ages six to sixteen, offered free of charge. VISION KIDS students come from all areas of the Valley and represent a wide array of diverse backgrounds; anyone can participate!

Classes are offered on Saturdays during the school year in morning (10am) and afternoon (1pm) sessions. Our students learn techniques in a variety of media including drawing, watercolor, ceramics, photography, and more! VISION KIDS is designed to inspire children’s creativity and empower them to integrate art into their daily lives.

The VISION KIDS program provides children with the opportunity to work with a professional artist and create a piece of art that is representative of their own creativity. It gives them the opportunity to develop important avenues for self-expression and an understanding of the creative process.

VISION KIDS is made possible through the support of the Chandler Cultural Foundation, a 501(c)3 organization. Your generous donations help to make visual and performance arts accessible to our Chandler community and beyond.
