A Word

From Our Principal

Art is not just about learning to draw or paint; nor it is just about inspiring children’s imagination.

An art education can cultivate curiosity, concentration, an open mind, problem solving skills, courage to experiment, and a sense of self identity in our children.

CalColor’s mission is to do everything we can to help each child to develop his/her own pathways in life.
