Amber’s Art Place is a Fine Arts School dedicated to high quality certified art instruction for all ages.  Instruction is based on the elements and principles of art, inclusive of composition, color theory and most of all, individual creativity! We believe art ignites creative thinking, develops problem-solving skills, releases freedom of expression and builds self-esteem.  Art is an integral part of our daily lives; it is all around us and offers meaning to our individual lives. We experience art by engaged learning, artistic explorations, historical references, art viewing and through the meaningful process of doing art. Students learn to truly “see” their surroundings in a new light and experience creativity in their world everyday.  All students experience pride and joy in their finished art works!                 
Our school motto is: “A place where creativity is kindled and individuality is a priority”
