    • My three kooky kids, each quite different from the other, all thrilled and thrived at Katonah Art Center for 7 or so years exploring their creativity in a wide array of media. The teachers are warm and fun, nurturing and inspiring. The relationships formed, freedom of expression encouraged, the love of art in all it's forms nourished - will feed their souls throughout their lives.

    • My seven year old daughter, Olivia, has been attending Katonah Art Center since she was three years old. With the help of the instructors she has been able to broaden her skills in many different areas of art...cartooning, drawing, painting, clay sculpture, etc. She has grown in the safe and nurturing environment Katonah Art Center provides while being able to express her own creative side.
