Art classes are a great way to encourage and foster creativity in children. Regardless how old one may be, getting started on creating art – no matter the form – brings about many benefits, from boosting one's self esteem and reducing stress to stimulating the imagination and enhancing one's problem-solving skills and memory, among many others.
If you want to enroll your kids in art classes and other creative activities in Bangkok, here are some studios and spaces to check out!

This art studio in Khlong Toei district offers art classes for different age groups, such as the Mini Monet (four to six years old), Progressive Picassos (seven to 13 years old), Tenacious Teens (14 to 19 years old), and Artistic Adults. While drawing and painting are the two visual art forms that Paron School of Art focuses on in its activities, it employs countless ways to approach these. For those who don't feel like enrolling in an art class, this studio also offers art packs with video instruction for kids and adults as well as private art parties for special occasions.

The fee includes a one-hour ticket entrance to the Playzone for one kid and adult. You may check Playville's website for more information on the activities' schedules.
