Christi Belle


Christi Belle is a Santa Ynez Valley local, the founder and co-owner of Art Spot. She is passionate about art and believes that creating is what we were all made to do. Ultimately, Christi hopes to inspire others through the creative process. Fun, energetic and encouraging as an instructor she lives for the moment when students light up as they step back and look at what they’ve created. Art Spot was born out of a desire to share her passion for painting and gifted ability to teach students leaving them comfortable with a paintbrush and proud of what they’ve accomplished. At the inception of Art Spot, Christi, as a natural born explorer, was unready to put down her roots in one location and thus began Art Spot to satisfy both pieces of her passions. After two years as a mobile business she and her wife Maria opened Art Spot “The Landing” to offer a space for ongoing classes, workshops and kids camps. In 2019, they opened up a larger studio that would serve as a community art center where kids and adults alike could drop in to create on their schedule.

Come work with us!

We are looking for outgoing, encouraging and customer-focused creatives that love kids (and maybe also love to teach). Is that you?
