The Young Creative Spirit is the children's
fine arts residency at Glen Echo Park
Coordinated by artist and instructor Katherine T. Andrle, and assisted by instructor Denise Dittmar, the center’s goal is to serve the community by providing art instruction to children and broaden their appreciation of the world by giving them an outlet for creative expression. Every child has both a tremendous visual awareness of the world outside and a wonderfully imaginative inner eye. The program encourages children to trust in their own interpretations and uses a wide variety of media to expand their experience. Small classes, taught in the Crystal Pool Studio, serve children ages 5 through 12 with a focus on the individual.
