What Our Customers are Saying
“The teachers at Creative Genius Art Academy are amazing with children, my children drawing skills improved a lot and they were able to learn basic concepts like shading, Cross Hatching Technique, Water Colour – Landscape and Animals. They were able to focus, enjoy and learn to be patient which is the most needed skill for success. I would strongly recommend CGAA for anybody who is looking in to learning art!”
