Brian Bartman, owner of Jackson KidzArt and Club Scientific Franchises, is a former college athlete and a volunteer coach at Leslie High School. His family is passionate about learning with over thirty years in education and nine family members serving as professional educators. The Corporate Headquarters for the KidzArt and Club Scientific Franchise Brands re-located to Jackson three years ago. Brian saw the need to have KidzArt and Club Scientific programs available to the children of the Jackson area. KidzArt and Club Scientific have been welcomed by the education community. Brian is excited to offer all of the classes and camps available through both KidzArt and Club Scientific programs to area families. This past year Palette Up! our Adult Art Soiree was added as a featured class in our creative center on Laurence Ave. "I'm very excited to be a part of this franchise system and look forward to serving greater Jackson area families and students by offering non-repeating art curriculum for ages 2-102 and science for ages 4-14. We also will offer a variety of our 56 plus different summer camp programs that will thrill and excite campers for many years to come! Learning was never this much fun!
