Small Hands Big Art

Small Hands Big Art is bringing their signature programs, phenomenal teachers, and lots of glitter to Gold Hill Elementary School this Fall! Each week we will dabble in different media using only the finest materials (liquid watercolors, oil pastels, heavy weight paper to name just a few). This class blends fine art techniques with your child's own creative expression. When you pick your child up from this class, we guarantee that you will want to run straight to the frame shop!

Small Hands Big Art has been delighting kids at it's South Charlotte studio since 2009. Now with a second studio in Fort Mill, we've brought our magical brand of joy & creativity to our South Carolina friends. We can't wait to meet you!
