"The world of reality has its limits. The world of imagination is boundless."
- Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Art & history
At Pinocchio Art School we practice a well rounded art education including history and geography of art. The curriculum of all art classes (excluding tot's classes and adult classes) are centered on one region of the world at a time (Canadian art, Italian art, Mexican art, Chinese art, Russian art, Korean art, French art, etc.) and its visual details. Children explore the world of art and art movements (Antiquity, Classicism, Impressionism, Modern Art, Pop Art, Abstractionism, and many more). In the past year children studied Poland, China, Italy, Russia, Canada, Netherlands, England, India and other places. They painted Taj Mahal, Pizan tower, build Chinese Dragon, learned about henna art and much more.

Art Voyage Intensive 90 min (9 - 16 years old)
This class is designed for serious little artists. Most student that get transfered into this class have been taking Art Voyage beginner or Art Voyage Intermediate class previously. The class is longer in length and gives student an opportunity to explore the projects in depth with the thorough assistance from the art instructor. If your child has never taken an art class at Pinocchio Art School before but would like to be a part of the Intensive program we would require to see simple portfolio or compilation of the previously created artwork. The evolution will help us to determine the child's strengths and weaknesses to help the child easily to immerse into the class structure.

The class is similar to Art Voyage Intermediate with more focus on craft, clay and collage work. In this class students will also explore the themes of art fundaments and drawing. The class would make a great fit for children that like to engage in clay and craft oriented activities.
