Color My World is a visual arts enrichment academy offering 34 weeks of art educational classes each year. Our program is designed to grow student talent and appreciation for the visual arts. We recommend that students serious about their art, enroll in our weekday after school academy on a regular basis, 34 weeks each year, for several years.

Students that have attended our academy for several years have blossomed from a beginner level artist to an advanced level of artistry. Today, many of these seasoned students, now advanced artists, serve as intern coaches with our academy, encouraging our younger artists to grow in their talent.
