Youth Art, STEM & Specialty Classes

Students at The Connection learn skills often not emphasized elsewhere including visual-spatial abilities, reflection, self-criticism, and the willingness to experiment and learn from mistakes. Specialty classes at The Connection teach your child fundamental skills in a warm and welcoming environment which fosters creativity and self-expression.

We look forward to safely bringing back our karate, art, music, yoga, sports, and STEM classes soon!
