My Arts Studio ART CAMPS are filled with creative and fun projects. Participants will explore a variety of media such as acrylics on canvas,watercolors, pastels, clay sculpture and more! We will enjoy Summer time thru art as we draw and paint landscapes, still-life, animals and other great themes. Professional art instructors will guide campers through a variety of art projects. The art activities at these camps introduce concepts geared toward the understanding of art and the creating process,while developing skills in specific areas. All of the lessons will introduce children to any or all of the following: The elements of art & principles of design, master artists, specific art techniques (use of charcoal, acrylics, clay, and other media) and art history. The art projects presented are geared towards accumulating skills that will be important for future intellectual accomplishments, such as: eye-hand coordination, fine motor skills, problem solving, awareness of cause and effect, proportion, and other. In a developmental art program, children develop the self-esteem that comes with accomplishment, the imagination that comes with experimentation, and the motor control that comes with practice. All art materials and aprons are provided. All clay projects will be glazed and fired. Art Camps for children ages 6-12. Year-round art classes are also offered, as well as art parties and more!
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
I believe art is the most pure non-verbal form of self-expression! Since a young age I have been involved in the arts and I remember always being interested in some form of creative exploration, from short story writing to theatre custom design, or mural painting. I got a taste for arts education when as a college arts student myself, I taught drawing, painting and ceramics to young pupils at different private schools. I have been an art educator for over twenty years, and teaching throughout Orange County as My Arts Studio, Inc. since 2002, and loving every moment of it!
What do you love most about your job?
I truly enjoy the creative process that each participant goes through. Every person has their own interpretation of the same subject matter, and to be able to see this transformation from blank canvas to a final art piece is very rewarding!
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
I love to see the same faces year after year, coming back to enjoy the art projects at My Arts Studio! Repeat students is the best compliment!
