The world of reality has its limits. The world of imagination is boundless.

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.
