Mr. Pat brings a new level of art to these students at such a young age. Allowing them to truly indulge and get lost in their projects through many open ended process focused art activities. Prior to Mr. Pat starting his journey at Happy Trails he spent his days working as an Art Director / Teachers assistant at the Patchogue YMCA for the past six years. He received an Associate’s Degree from Suffolk County Community College, and is currently in the process of achieving his CDA certification. As a painter and sculptor, Mr. Pat has had a few exhibitions at the Gansevoort hotel on Park Avenue, as well as Martha Clara Vineyards in Riverhead. His appreciation for Fine Art and the creative process is a fabulous introduction to the world of arts and crafts for your child. The process each student works through is a life lesson. Each activity we will work on will help achieve and improve the fine and gross motor skills of your child as well as an introduction to creative thinking and problem solving.
