Art Classes for all Ages!
The Culture House School of Art

The Culture House Artist In Residence and Director for School of Art is the ever-inspiring, Ken de la Durantaye.  Mr. Durantaye and his faculty teaches students from all ages to discover, cultivate and enjoy their gifts in drawing, painting, sculpture and more.  

A new program we have launched at our Oak Park location is the Grandma & Me classes.  Just a four-week series, this is a special time for Grandma (Parents & Gramps are welcome too!) to spend drawing and creating with their grandchild/child.  Located at the Oak Park Mall location makes it convenient to enjoy class with other kids and have a fun treat after choosing from all the options Oak Park has to offer.  

You can also see Ken's work being created as he finishes a new mural at Oak Park on the front of the new stage doors.  Students at the Olathe Conservatory get the opportunity to exhibit their at area locations as well as at the annual art exhibition in April.  So much to discover and enjoy in The Culture House School of Art! 

We offer a complete dance curriculum for all ages in ballet, modern, jazz, tap, and hip hop. Staffed with some of the finest teachers in Kansas City, we strive daily to encourage and challenge students to become their best and advance in the mastery of technique. Our conservatory-style program is designed to instill valuable life skills, including discipline, passion for high quality, perseverance, a joyful work ethic, and an encouraging attitude. Spectacular year-end performances are part of this learning process and thrill performers and audiences alike.

Homeschool Music or Art


Whether it is expressing our heartfelt emotions, raising our spirits, or uniting all of humanity through its power and beauty, music has become integral to our daily lives. Music also has a broad range of benefits in the healthy development of every child. The discipline needed to learn a musical instrument combined with the creativity and expressiveness that brings music to life stimulates the healthy development of our minds and personalities.Classes include private voice and private instrument lessons, and our Homeschool Choir.

We welcome you into The Culture House School of Music!
