Innovative Children’s Art Education Program Comes to Berwyn

KidzArt Franchise Brings Right Brain Thinking to Local Kids

Bringing drawing techniques and creative activities to local children to foster their love of art is one of the goals of franchise owner Gianardo Franco. The owner of KidzArt  Berwyn in Illinois, an international children’s art education franchise company with over 70 franchisees, will be serving families in Berwyn and the local area.  

KidzArt offers a unique curriculum for kids, from preschoolers to teenagers and adults too. Classes are small, up to 15 enrollees, to maximize the amount of attention paid to each student. The program teaches how to express and gain greater self-confidence through drawing. Absolutely no prior arts training experience is necessary to participate. 

“With previous experience working with children in Chicago public schools, I'm thrilled to bring quality art enrichment and creative expression to local children," says Franco. "Everyone, young and old, can enjoy the benefits of art through our fun and educational art instruction."

Franco will be collaborating with local school districts, PTA/PTO's and recreation/resource centers to offer after school art programs.  In addition, KidzArt will provide art birthday parties, after-school parties and art camps during school vacations and the summer break.  There will also be classes to help adults continue a lifelong talent or try art for the first time.

“We’re thrilled to help both children and adults in the Berwyn area gain confidence in their artistic abilities and themselves in the process," says Sue Bartman, CEO of KidzArt. "KidzArt allows our students to explore, express and be motivated by their artwork in a noncompetitive environment, which promotes problem solving and self-expression.”  

KidzArt is a portable program that operates on-site at schools and convenient locations.  Programs for children will be offered after school as well as during the school day.  Classes are forming now.
