FDS Art Program

All about Art Classes at FDS

FDS is excited to offer our students, ages 3-15, the opportunity to immerse themselves not only in dance and gymnastics but in the visual arts as well. 


FDS art classes are taught by our beloved and very own Professional Artist, Ms. Irina Lib; and by Ms. Hanna Golovko, who is a practicing artist with experience designing and making stained glass vitrage windows, as well as years and years of drawing and painting, and teaching art to small groups of children. Our teachers will focus on unlocking each child's imagination and helping them develop their style.

They will work in different mediums, learn about famous artists, and create their own masterpieces that will always reflect their unique points of view. 

FDT's Art classes offer students the opportunity to delve into the visual as well as performing arts. Students explore different styles and mediums with bountiful chances to be as creative as possible. Imagination is childhood's greatest gift, and here it is never stifled but fostered and aided by the introduction of proper technique at appropriate age levels.​

“Painting is concerned with all the 10 attributes of sight; which are: Darkness, Light, Solidity and Colour, Form and Position, Distance and Propinquity, Motion and Rest.”

-Leonardo da Vinci, 'The Notebooks Of Leonardo Da Vinci Volume 2', 2005.

Tuition and Fees

Tuition is calculated annually based on the cost of the program and the number of days in the entire school year.  

  • Tuition is divided into 11 equal payments (Mid-August to June) for your convenience, regardless of the number of weeks in a month, missed lessons, school closings, or school vacations.

  • Tuition is due by the 1st of each month and considered past due after the 3rd.

  • FDS runs on a calendar month, meaning the tuition remains the same whether there are 3, 4, or 5 classes in that month.
