Small Hands Big Art Chosen for "Best Kids Class" by Charlotte Magazine Best of the Best Issue

May Issue of Charlotte Magazine Recognizes Small Hands Big Art for Best Kids Class
CHARLOTTE, N.C. - May 6, 2013 - PRLog -- For 45 years, Charlotte magazine has been required reading for those who want to stay abreast of the people, places, events and activities that define the Queen City. Since 1997, its May issue has been dedicated to the annual "Best of the Best" (BOB) awards, recognizing the who’s who among local business and service providers, as determined by their editors and readers. This year, Charlotte magazine writers and editors selected small hands big art as the winner in the "Best Kids Class" category for their annual compendium of the best this city has to offer.

Supporting the creative expression of children and young adults through the visual arts since 2009, small hands big art is a full-time arts enrichment program for children & young adults up to age 14, offering age and developmentally appropriate classes, parties, camps and workshops.  Mixed media activities include painting, drawing, collage, printmaking, sculpture & upcycle art.  

During the summer months, small hands big art offers mixed media camps at two locations in Ballantyne and Dilworth, as well as weekly pottery camps.

The bright and open Ballantyne studio provides a lively space that is safe, engaging, organized and welcoming. Children feel free and uninhibited to explore their creativity without worrying about making a mess – and parents don’t have to scrub markers off the walls or paint out of the carpet!

To promote each child’s unique expression and discovery of the joy of art, small hands big art believes it is important to provide them with artistic freedom and latitude to make their own creative choices and work at their own pace, while downplaying the aesthetic value of the finished product.   Instructors strive to stimulate thoughts, feelings, and perception in a way that inspires and encourages each child to express their ideas visually, while offering individualized guidance during the creative process as needed.

"We're honored and humbled to be recognized by Charlotte magazine for our work that we are so passionate about. We're grateful to all the parents who support and encourage their children's creativity by letting them spend so much time in the studio with us!" stated Jennifer Bryant, small hands big art owner.

BOB award winners will be recognized at Charlotte Magazine’s red carpet celebration on May 23, hosted by 107.9 The Link radio personalities Kelly McKay and Ramona Holloway.
