The Art of Learning is not an ordinary private school.
It grew out of a unique partnership between an educational therapist, an artist, dedicated teachers, students who want to learn, and parents who dared to believe that learning differences could be surmounted in an atmosphere of care and individualized attention to their children.
The Art of Learning Academy accepts students who do not do well in traditional school environments, large environments, and large classrooms.
We meet in the cozy home environment of an ample house in Northridge that has a lovely garden and pool.
We also have a 1200 square-foot, on-site, fully equipped art studio, where students who love art can learn to work with innumerable materials and tools.
Ours is a small school of warmth and intimacy in which the learning experience takes place either one-on-one or in small groups with less than ten students per teacher and a paraprofessional aide.
