Foster Art offers teacher led and discovery based art exploration for children 5-15 and offers classes for preschoolers, teens and adults.


Founder, Molly Foster, an arts integration specialist, has over 24 years of experience working with children as both a classroom teacher and art teacher.  She has been a professor of art education at Mary Baldwin University and is the art teacher at Hollymead Elementary School in Charlottesville, VA.


Art is her passion and teaching art has been a dream come true.  With an BA in Studio Art & Psychology from Virginia Tech and a Masters in Education from Radford University, Molly continues to learn more from her fellow art teachers and students.  Her emphasis on student choice and exploration of art materials is evident in the independence that students gain under her guidance.

About Foster Art

Foster Art provides art classes and a creative space for artists of all ages to come make art!  We use both process based art that is unguided and guided art instruction for artists to fit their best learning styles.  Our workshops on Saturdays change from week to week, and our summer camps and art clubs run consecutively for several days.  Homeschoolers and preschoolers may be interested in our Explore & Play classes that will offer open ended art exploration and targeted theme based art instruction.  Family art time and workshops for all ages are held on weekends.  We are excited to open our studio for creative and curious artists in our community!
