Georgia Youngs Art

Georgia’s Art School – Child Art Classes

The art school has been a dream of mine for some time and finally came to fruition in September 2010 when I moved to 5649 Blenheim St. In having the extra space in the lower level, I opened the doors to what is now my 4th Georgia’s Art School. In over a year, my registration grew from 7 students to 25 and continues to grow to this day.

While living in Ontario and now BC, I’ve taught children’s programs in community centres, recreational centres, after school programs run by associations, private schools and public schools. I’ve been instrumental in starting art programs where there has never been one before including an outreach program to bring art back into the schools. Three years ago I designed a program called No More Scribbling. It successfully addresses the needs of struggling 5+ year old who lack focus, have an improper pencil grip and fidget or have a diagnosis of ADHD or DCC including other neurodivergent conditions. I am always on the lookout for new ways to teach and for exciting new challenges I know children will love to draw or paint.

Art Instruction

My teaching method is successful in its simplicity as it is child led. It doesn’t matter what the child chooses I can always instill the of  basics of design, use of shapes, colour theory and composition. Sometimes though I may have specific projects I want them to tackle as I may feel it is time they need to be challenged in another direction. I always make sure each child feels they have accomplished something and should be proud of it. So often I think a child’s lack of self-esteem is a lack of accomplishment and possibly a lack of some well-placed praise.

Besides all the basics i.e. colour theory, composition
and art history your child will learn:

I look forward always to the next step on my journey in helping each fertile, creative mind that comes through my door. I do love teaching art. Contact me at
Children Art Class Schedule Basic Information
Weekday After School Classes

For those children passionate about art I have 2 options for after school classes during the week days

(Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday)

You can register your child as a PRIVATE STUDENT, meaning I see them one on one.


You can register your child as a SEMI-PRIVATE STUDENT that means the class will have 2 – 3 students.

I make all attempt to find age-appropriate students to join each other but some times that becomes too difficult so it becomes a decision to have your child come they may have to come as a private and pay a private fee.

Sometimes if sibling are close in age they can come together as semi-private students.


Sometimes the parents can arrange for friends to come together so they register as semi-private students

The Times For After School Classes
The earlier hour after school  3:30 – 4:30  is a 1 hour class and  I try to reserve for those children 5 – 6 The next hours after school    4:30 – 6:00  is a 1.5 hour class  for those children who are older *I am flexible about the times as much as I can to accommodate each child’s schedule Saturday My hours on Saturday are not as regulated and are filled based on the age and requirements of each child.
