Studio 4 Art's art school begins with art classes for toddler and preschool students and is focused on fun, exploratory, engaging, and messy opportunity to learn about art making. We have our young creators working both inside and outside, taking advantage of our beautiful setting. This is a completely hands on experience where your young person will want to dress for mess. Your little one will be introduced to amazing art techniques and open ended experiences that will instill the love of art and discovery.

When it comes to the big kids, we have a wealth of art educational knowledge we love to share. Our projects and art curriculum is rich in skills and technique, offering an approach that is unique to Studio 4 Art, truly creating leadership skills through our program. We only use the best quality art materials, and explore everything creative there is through our art making. We have been teaching in Mill Valley for over 18 years and love the town that started Studio 4 Art. We connect with the Mill Valley Recreation Department to offer classes in all public schools, and in the center itself. We also coordinate with the Strawberry Recreation Center offering classes for older students that want to gain skills and techniques and now we are in Sausalito’s Willow Creek after school enrichment. Most of our classes are so popular that they often fill in one hour of being posted. We feel pretty lucky to offer our classes through our city!

With all of our parties, our attendees get instruction on art technique while having fun! After all, we are about education and advocacy for creativity, being mindful of age appropriate "how to". Art pARTy are also great for earning scout badges. Choose any art material. Mosaics, Clay Sculpting, Acrylic Painting, Printmaking, T-shirt batik, Sewing, Collage, and Drawing. Call to discuss any ideas you may have. Our in house parties are for ages 1.5-7. We also offer pARTies-to-go and pARTy-in-a-box, which are great for ages 1.5-103. 

Art camps in our Southern Marin location are filled with exploration in art, a time to play, have fun, and experiment. Painting, clay, printmaking, and even wheel throwing will be incorporated into our day. Art, snack, outside time, and stories, will keep your young explorer excited and engaged!
