Houston >Glassell School Of Art

Children's art lessons.
I took art lessons here from ages 6 - 12-ish, and it was really great. Sometimes public school can be very restrictive about allowing students to express themselves, so I enjoyed having teachers that gave me challenging, age-appropriate lessons and talked to me like I was an adult-in-training rather than a kid they had to babysit. It was fun having field trips to the MFAH.
These classes would be a really good supplement for kids who attend a public school with a less-than-stellar art program. I don't know if a kid who's fortunate enough to attend a private school, or a public school with a well-supported art department, would need these classes. Either way, I remember that I always had tons of fun and I still have some of the goofy sculptures and drawings I made with friends.
I'm going to be returning this fall hopefully for adult art lessons so I can continue studying art part-time in a structured environment.
Impressed and Happy.
I have been so happy with the instruction my children receive at this wonderful school. They come home and use what they have learned in class in their artwork and at their elementary school. Also, due to the school being part of the Museum of Art, the students can tour the museum with their teachers!
There is a wonderful site of photographs of students at work at this web address: glassellart.blogspot.c.
I recommend this school highly!
A great art school in Houston.
I have been making the 45-50 mile round trip to the Glassell School with my children for years now- they love it and so do I.
The school provides a nurturing enviornment for children to explore their artistic talents and grow in their confidence and experience. I can't say enough good things about it really. I am really astonished that some have posted unfavorable comments- maybe they've had bad experiences there, or maybe they just have, stupid untalented, children and they can't come to terms with that fact.
Actually a very good school. I felt I had to review Glassell based on the 2 reviews here. I've been a part-time student here 2 years and there are some awesome instructors here at any four-year university would be proud to claim and the curriculum and studio projects are very rigorous and challenging. Like the 3/4/09 reviewer I have had trouble getting instructors to respond to emails, namely the head of the jewelry department who I emailed twice with zero response to my questions about her 3d design course. Since email is the only contact info the school will give out for faculty they should respond. All in all Glassell is a very good school. I have a Masters degree and I know educational quality when I see it.
These classes are a joke. I regret paying good money for these classes. They are boring,you definitly don't get your moneys worth. I should've gone out and bought some paper and a couple of crayons for the amount of "education" my son is getting. These classes are for parents who are trying to pawn their kids off for a couple of hours. Not real art classes at all. Don't waste your money.Also not a fun place for kids.
NO Customer service!. For 10 years I have not gone to a class at the glassell school due to bad service, I thought I would try again so I wrote to the teacher with a question and never got a reply so when I went to sigh up the British woman at the front was so rude and not helpful that even had the class not been full I would not give them a dime. Goes to show that some things never change. I don't recomend the school.
