What We Do
Neighborhood Art Studios
Our goal is to find, encourage and develop artistic talent hidden in every person. We work individually with our students and DO NOT follow a lecture model. We pledge ourselves and our facilities, towards your goal of satisfying the need to create and we do this with the utmost of confidence.
I believe that art has many benefits from promoting creativity to developing problem solving skills. My goal is to encourage and develop artistic talent hidden in every person. In addition to teaching at the studio, I offer hands-on art workshops to Elementary Schools in the Lower Mainland and art parties for all occasions. Sharing my passion in the community in every way possible!
What Parents & Our Students Say
“Our daughters have been students at Neighbourhood Art Studios for eight years. Chris and his staff continue to inspire them while teaching the technical and creative skills necessary to express themselves through a variety of art forms including sketching, painting, and sculpting. The studio's nurturing environment filled with budding artists from all ages and backgrounds is developing a natural confidence in our daughters, along with an appreciation of others' unique works. ”Natasha DaviesThe Davies, parents of Sasha (almost 14) and Eva (almost 12)
“My daughter started her art classes at Neighbourhood Art Studio when she was five years old, that was almost seven years ago. Although she’s experienced other studios and teaching styles, she always asks to take more classes at Neighbourhood Art Studio with Chris.
Main reason? Because she has the opportunity to develop her passion and skill in a direction that interest her and the style that appeals to her with the bonus of personal attention from the instructors.
Under the Chris’s and Preeti's guidance, she’s developing her love for drawing and sketching to a level that is even surprising to her.
The instruction at Neighbourhood Art Studio is not a template, rather it is art student based. The students learn the foundations of shapes, scale and build their skills to become art experts. The classes are just the right size for personal approach .”Anna Hewsten Parent
“Our son has been going Neighborhood Art for two years now and he loves it! Chris is an amazing instructor and they do everything from pencil sketches to clay sculpting. His artistic skills and his appreciation for art has grown dramatically since he started. It's one of those activities that our son looks forward to going to.”Ped NaimiParent
