Kids and parents alike love to participate in arts and crafts. After school and a heavy load of homework, we all want some activities that are just for fun. Although some art spaces are more kid friendly than others, they all provide services to help the artist young or old to hone their craft and make things of beauty. Often they have special classes that include live models and other special program participation. Here are a few places to take classes and study fine art or just bring the family for a fun afternoon of arts and crafts in Los Angeles.
