CATS seeks to develop a student comfortable with themselves and the individualistic expression of their own ideas in various artistic mediums. Our students have a mature respect for art and develop a keen ability for critical thinking.
In 2006, CATS was created by three experts in early childhood education to enhance the curriculum of preschool children. Since then, CATS has served over 1,200 students across Greenville County.
Since then CATS has been contracted by the Greenville County School District to provide Early Childhood Art Education to parents and students through parent and teacher workshops.
