Welcome! 

The Dreaming Heart is an expressive, joyful, and confidence-boosting creative space for kids!  

 

Located in Chesterville, Ontario, we offer exciting and engaging visual art classes designed to get young artists joyfully and expressively thinking and doing.

NOTE TO PARENTS

We are all about small, quality classes.  Small groups equal lots of one-on-one attention, space to feel comfortable, and a high-quality art experience.

OUR MOTTO

Every child is an original work of art.

One-of-a-kind.

A masterpiece!

The above statement is what guides every effort and process at the Dreaming Heart... the belief that every child is a wonderfully unique and creative individual.   Our goal is to encourage and inspire students to ALWAYS ALWAYS ALWAYS express and embrace who they are!  

 
But it takes courage to be true to oneself and creative risk-taking can sometimes mean an art piece doesn't turn out exactly as planned.  We think that's an AMAZING thing!  The unexpected provides children with the opportunity to problem-solve and persevere.  Not to mention, self-expression equals emotionally happy and innovative thinkers and creators (annnd some pretty spiffy art pieces!). 
 
So, please join us in spreading the message that there is no right or wrong way to create art and no need to compare.  Just opportunities to grow, develop our artistic skills, communicate, be ourselves, and create art in our own perfectly unique way!

let's say "yes please" to art in all its glorious forms!

YES to (seemingly) undecipherable mud-coloured masterpieces created by an adventuring, curious child.

YES to detailed, precise drawings crafted by an observant, thoughtful mind.

YES to expressive and abstract art originating from an emotional soul who is bravely sharing a piece of themselves with the world.


YES, YES, YES to ORIGINALITY & BEING ONE'S SELF!
