Even if you are new to our studio, our art projects are NOT new to your children. We bring affordable visual arts education to school classrooms from developmental kindergarten through eighth grade. The objective is to bridge the gap due to the lack of art funding in California’s educational system. We are working with several PTA sponsored programs in South Bay:
- Adventures in Art (Torrance)
- Hands on Art (Redondo)
- Young at Art (Manhattan/Hermosa Beach)
- Art to Grow On (San Pedro/Lomita)
- Gateway to Art (Westchester)
Parent Volunteer Training.
We run art training workshops to teach 3000+ parent volunteers who, in turn, teach the students in their individual classrooms. Training includes the methodology, motivation and inspiration, as well as letting the volunteers try their hands at creating the project.
We encourage volunteers to bring our projects to the community to spread the joy of art. Our project “Proud as Peacock” even traveled internationally to an orphanage in India. The sculpture project “Forms in Movement” was brought to a senior living facility in Oregon by our parent volunteer.
Pandemic Art Series.
We hosted therapeutic art series since the entire country went into a Safe-At-Home mode, including “Zentangle”, “Coloring”, “Mandala”, “Line Illusion”, and “Labyrinth”. Creating beautiful and repetitive patterns to allow our brain to enter a peaceful flow state to reduce anxiety and help promote a feeling of peace and focus on the present moment, essential during this trying time.
