One of the best ways to educate kids in a fun way is to give them an art class to try. Kids love to use their creativity with drawing, painting, sculpting, etc. as well as through musical arts and crafting arts. The OC has some great programs that kids will beg their parents to bring them back to over and over again. Here are the top art classes in the OC for kids.
Orange County School of the Arts1010 North Main Street

For kids age 13 to 18, various art classes are offered at the Orange County School of the Arts. Most people think of the arts as what you might take in an art class, but this school is diverse and offers art classes across the board such as:

Students can take advantage of their programs regardless of financial ability.
Chuck Jones Center for Creativity3321 Hyland Avenue
Costa Mesa, CA
The Chuck Jones Center for Creativity is the place to go for kids who want to learn about painting and drawing cartoons. What makes this program special is that it was named after Chuck Jones, the director, screenwriter, producer, animator, and cartoonist, so all of the elements of the classes are based on teaching this type of creativity to kids. They will learn to draw cartoons, create dioramas, paint, and use pastels. You can even drop in and try a free class before signing up as a student.
