Ben has just finished teaching his 12th school year, and is happily booking children for summer paint tutorials in his studio. $50/Hour/Child includes all supplies and a cold juice beverage. All ages, and he requests that one adult stay in studio on premises. Multiple kids at once are fine(up to 5), because Ben believes that children learn differently when they are elbow to elbow with others who are in a similar place developmentally. Painting in a real live casino art studio also puts kids in the right 'frame' of mind. Recent sessions featured a local 11-yr-old, who painted alongside his grandmother visiting from Colombia!
