What families are saying about Color My World ARTS Academy!
Our daughters and son have been taking drawing and painting classes with Miss Kathryn for several years and are so impressed with what they are learning and creating. When they first started they were just beginning to draw simple lines and shapes. Now all three of our kids are drawing such amazing realistic drawings. They love painting on canvas most of all and their paintings are so vibrant and colorful with lots of attention to detail. We are so proud to have their artwork hanging all over the house! -Patel Family, Streamwood
Thank you for adding so much more color to Aanya’s world of art! She absolutely loves art class. I have enjoyed seeing her learn and explore different art forms, and the joy on her face as she shows me her piece of work is always heartwarming. Your ability to combine art with storytelling has opened a whole new world of imagination for her, which, among other classes, made the “Art around the World” class an especially unique experience. The “Spanish Tile”, “Japanese fan”, “Indian Jeweled Elephant” have added a special touch to our home decor! Thanks again to you and Arts in Bartlett for bringing so much joy to my little girl!-Veda N., Arts in Bartlett Family Member
My daughter is a girl scout and her troop has attended the art badge workshops at Color My World each year since they began. They have earned a painting badge, a potter’s badge, a drawing badge, a jewelry badge, a collage badge and a textile badge. Each of the workshops exceeded the necessary girl scout requirements and the girls really enjoyed their experiences in a real art studio and gallery. -Jennifer P., Scout Mom
Thank you so much for donating an art session to Da Vinci Academy for our upcoming auction. I just noticed it online. I’m sure there will be a lot of interest in that item and you should get some great exposure for your classes. I will continue to tell people about the great job you are doing with Valerie. I LOVE the artwork on canvas that she brought home yesterday! I know that she has always loved art but you seem to have really brought out her artistic side. I have never seen her do such wonderful work as she is doing at Arts in Bartlett. Thanks again for all you do! -Cheryl T., Arts in Bartlett Family Member
Miss Kathryn-I wanted to let you know how much Anthony loves art class and having you as his teacher. It is amazing how much he has learned about art! You are such a wonderful teacher and relate so well to all the children. I am so thankful we found out about Color My World and would recommend you and the program to anyone! You offer such a wide variety of classes at a very affordable price. You were so accommodating to create a class for Anthony and his friends to fit into their schedule. We look forward to having Anthony grow as an artist in your program for many years to come!

I just want to say how happy I am that Color My World has opened in Bartlett. My two daughters, ages 7 and 5, absolutely love going there. I have been impressed with all the beautiful art work the girls have made over the last couple of months. Kathryn Benton is an excellent teacher. She is so patient with the children and my girls truly enjoy working with her and learning about art. As a parent, I appreciate the variety of options for classes that the art studio offers and I feel it is an affordable activity for both my girls to participate in. With our schedule, it is difficult to commit to a ten week art class session, but the Saturday studio by reservation have worked out well for us. We even hosted a play date at the studio with two of their friends back in February and they made beautiful Valentine’s Day cards. I also like that every six weeks or so, the studio offers free art events for the community. My girls and I truly enjoyed the Chinese New Year Celebration. I will continue to get the word out about all the great things going on at Color My World Art Studio. We are really looking forward to the art summer camps!

I was looking for a special place to celebrate my daughter’s 10th birthday. My daughter wanted a canvas painting party and wanted to choose her own painting theme, decorations, music, and other activities. Miss Kathryn met with us and helped to plan the perfect arty party! She was such a kind hostess and very patient in teaching painting on canvas. Art materials, party supplies, snacks, and cupcakes were included in the package price. Everything was set up and decorated when we arrived and Miss Kathryn and her helpers took care of the clean up. No stress, no mess for me! The children were so engaged in the art process and enjoyed the art gallery scavenger hunt at the end. Everything was well organized. Very impressive. -Melissa K., Bartlett Mom
