Our Novato studio was born out of our personal love of art and the importance we saw art education brought to all ages. Studio 4 Art's art school was created 17 years ago, but our Novato studio for art was a dream that came true in 2008. We are conveniently located in downtown and are easy access for those Corte Madera, Fairfax, Mill Valley, Petaluma, San Anselmo, San Rafael, and Terra Linda.
Our Novato studio for art drop in is for ages 1.5 through adults. Toddlers through adults living in Corte Madera, Fairfax, Mill Valley, Petaluma, San Anselmo, San Rafael, and Terra Linda. You can enjoy paint your own pottery, wheel throwing, clay sculpting (that will be fired in our kilns), acrylic painting, printmaking, mosaics, screenprinting, and more. All age appropriate techniques and always fun! Our staff are art educators and artists themselves and are eager to share their knowledge with you.
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. Our art school begins with fun and continues that exploration to school age and teens too. We are fortunate to have art educators that are experienced artists and have been trained in Studio4Art's philosophy's in teaching, truly unique to how most art classes are taught. Art classes include wheel throwing art class, art + science classes, ceramics art class, portfolio building art class, drawing + illustration art class, crochet class, sewing class, homeschool art class, art + history, and even a family art class!
When it comes to the big kids, we have a wealth of art educational knowledge we love to share. Our projects and art curriculum are rich in skills and technique, offering an approach that is unique to Studio4Art, 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 Novato schools, Petaluma schools, Fairfax schools, Mill Valley schools, and Larkspur schools since 1999. If your school would like to be included, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org.
With all of our parties, our attendees get instruction on art technique while having a whole lot of fun! Best part, we set up, clean up, and entertain, so you can enjoy just hanging out and watching the creators create. Our art teachers are there with the how to's in Mosaics, Clay Sculpting, Acrylic Painting, Printmaking, T-shirt batik, Sewing, Collage, and Drawing. We are about education and advocacy for creativity even in our pARTy's. Call to discuss any ideas you may have. Our in house parties are for ages 1.5-adult. We also offer pARTies-to-go and pARTy-in-a-box, which are great for ages 1.5-103. *Keep Art pARTy's in mind for earning scout badges for Girl and Boy Scout troops (special rate applies).
Art camps are filled with exploration in art. Studio4Art art camps are similar to our art school, but these students get to dive deeper, working longer on projects, have more opportunity to practice, and gain skills that the won't be introduced to in most of our local schools. Our art camps are full of art techniques, new twists and fun ways to use art materials to create amazing projects, and free choice time which includes wheel throwing everyday is offered. Sculpting, graffiti art, ceramics, and mixed media are all explored. We design every camp week to be different, so if you have joined us for other camps, your camper will explore all new projects!
Family art workshops are about creating together, taking moments and creating memories through themed projects. This is our 9th year offering these activities and they are always so amazing. Looking forward to our upcoming workshops that will be great for handmade holiday gift giving. Different workshops for ages 2-103.
