Our Novato location opened in 2008. Seeing a need for creative thinking, a place that wasn't set by "how to" but rather by discovery, and wanting a way for families to create together, Studio 4 Art Novato was born. This was after teaching art for 9 years in many schools and private lessons. We are an outlet for creatives of all ages to have a space where exploring and learning happen naturally. Don't worry, if you don't have experience with our drop in options, we have staff that are teachers and artists themselves, fully capable to answer any questions along the way. Come in and play!
