Welcome to Rockwell Music Academy


Every Thursday for anyone who wants to take part in creativity in a social setting.

Art education in schools plays a crucial role in the development of students' creativity, critical thinking, and self-expression. It also provides students with the opportunity to explore different cultures and historical periods through the study of art.

In an art class, students will learn various art techniques such as drawing, painting, sculpture, printmaking, and more. They will also learn about art history, art movements, and famous artists. Through the process of creating art, students will develop fine motor skills, hand-eye coordination and problem-solving skills.

Art education also helps students to develop self-confidence and self-esteem, as they learn to express themselves through the visual arts. It also teaches them to take risks, experiment, and learn from their mistakes.

Art education is not only about creating art, but also about understanding and appreciating it. It helps students to understand that art is a reflection of human experience and a way of understanding the world around us.
