New Braunfels, TX (PRWEB) February 28, 2008
KidzArt, an international children's art education franchise company, welcomed five new franchises to its international network in the last quarter of 2007. The organization, which has been helping students ages 2-102 unleash their creativity for the past 15 years, now offers its services in 29 US states and in China.
The newest additions to the KidzArt franchise network are located in Manchester, CT, Hamilton, OH, Traverse City, MI, Jacksonville, FL, and McAllen, TX. The CT and MI KidzArt franchises are the first in their states.
"KidzArt is excited about its offerings in two new states and our further penetration into OH, FL and TX," says Shell Herman, CEO of KidzArt. "The demand for our art instruction services is growing exponentially as educators and parents understand how crucial the arts are to a comprehensive and balanced education for their children. Our franchisees are coming on board, quickly ramping up to meet the demand and reaping the benefits of this great opportunity in the marketplace."
KidzArt offers a unique art education curriculum for kids, from preschoolers to teenagers, and senior citizens 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.
Annie Poulin, executive director of KidzArt in CT, is excited to be the first in the state to offer the industry-leading art education brand.
"Through my relationships with the local schools, communities and parents I want to increase awareness of the KidzArt program in Connecticut and make sure that all children have the opportunity to have art expression in their lives," notes Poulin.
In addition to after-school art programs, KidzArt franchisees provide art birthday parties and art camps during school vacations and the summer breaks. KidzArt's newest program, KidzArt Products, offers artwork on a variety of products such as mugs, mouse pads and clocks at http://www.kidzartproducts.com. The customized products are used for school fundraisers as an alternative to cookie dough and wrapping paper.
