See what parents are saying about The Arts in Stockton:
Our children have participated in a number of different programs at the Arts in Stockton and each time we have all been very impressed. Our kids made things as simple as magnets to as extravagant as pottery. They’ve been engaged in all different forms of art and mediums. They offer a great place to tap into the artistic side in our kids. The teachers are all very patient, very cheerful, and very helpful throughout the programs. Ultimately, our kids love to go here and we love that once they’re there, they have a better chance of reaching the potential of their imaginations. Jim W., Lambertville, NJ
All of my children have attended the Arts and have loved the summer programs as well as the fun birthday events. The Arts is a nice safe place nestled in nature and offers intelligent guidance so the kids experience the “fun” of art while also learning. We plan on attending more sessions in the future and I wish to explore some adult classes as well. Hope B., New Hope
