Summer Art Camps


Summer Art Camps

There are only 8 DAYS left of school! We were shook this morning, too, when we found out. So we are sending out a reminder to sign your child up today to join us for our creative & fun Summer Art Camps! There are 6 weeks to choose from, all listed with short descriptions below. Camps are from 10am-2pm each day. A typical camp day begins with an art project followed by lunch and then further work on our art project or a guided painting in the afternoon. Each Friday of Summer Camp closes with a very special Art Show where we invite guests to enjoy art created by that weeks’ participants. Space is limited and camps do sell out, so be sure to secure your child’s spot today and let the excitement begin.

Geared toward children ages 7-12, we provide space and guidance for kids to freely create, learn different skills in various mediums and build self-confidence.


Mixed Media Art Camp

A week of exploring and creating art using various forms of mixed media! Participants will learn how to take the ordinary and repurpose it with other materials to produce an assortment of artistic pieces.





4 Ways in 4 Days Art Camp

Spend four days with the Art Spot learning 4 ways (but really probably more) to create art with paint! There are so many types of art making with so many ways to use paint and we are going to have fun with exploring just a few of our favorites. Participants will learn the joys of spin art, marbled art, scraping and blowing!




Sculpture Art Camp 

Join the Art Spot for a week of fun discovering a few ways to create sculptures! We’ll learn all about 3-dimensional art and then apply that knowledge while constructing our very own sculptures. We’ll learn how to take various materials and make something completely new!





Print-Making Art Camp

From basic stamp making to more detailed relief prints, this
week we will create art with printmaking! Learning how to best apply pattern, layer color and most importantly use new techniques, like Gyotaky the traditional Japanese method of printing fish!





Dioramas Art Camp

The art of the diorama is something special to childhood. This week of art camp we will each fabricate our own 3-dimensional scenes from a world deep within your child’s imagination.





Viva La Fiesta Art Camp

One of our favorite camps returns to close out the 2023 Summer Art Camp series. Join us as we create our own fiesta magic! We’ll be making our own cascarónes, flamenco dancer ornaments and a crowd favorite… piñatas!

Open Studio in Solvang, Fall Kids Art Camp & Paint and Sip Events



A little note & family update from us…

When Maria and I opened the studio our biggest goal and purpose was to create COMMUNITY. We want to get back to that now that we’re finally coming out of the COVID fog. A few months ago we were thrown a bit of a curveball in our personal life and have found it really difficult to operate business as usual. We were given the surprise of a lifetime and had the privilege of opening our hearts and our home to our daughter’s newborn twin brothers, quite unexpectedly. So, as you can imagine, that has been all consuming and a bit overwhelming as our family of 3 expanded to a family of 5 overnight. As we come up for air, we are taking a minute to reflect on our business and remember why we opened the studio in the first place.What we realized was that, ultimately, our biggest goal is to build community and create a space for all of us to be enriched by art. Our aim is to make art instruction as accessible as possible and, hopefully, in the process, introduce more of our Valley residents to the studio. As far as we’re concerned–the more people making art the better! As a result of those conversations came a few different offerings that we want to share with you.

We’ve made it our goal is to offer the following once a month:

  • $15 drop-in classes to anyone 16 and older–work on whatever you’d like–bring your own art supplies or purchase/rent supplies at the studio that night. Reservations are required as space will be limited. (starting in November)
  • $45 Paint and Sip nights–all supplies included. BYOB (starting in November)
  • A kids art class for $15, ages 7-12 (starting in January)

And, the following once a quarter:

  • $15 Kids art class for ages 5-7
  • $20 Toddler art playtimes for ages walking–4

We have dates on the calendar through the end of the year and are beginning to plan next year, so stay tuned! Please scroll down to see the dates and sign up! 🙂
