The little art studio in ❤ of the Steveston Community

Located in the beautiful Steveston community on Steveston our little children’s art studio is the perfect place: lovely, cozy & welcoming, for students to create & experience the joy of making art.

Our program follows 4Cats pedagogy founded on building a world that encourages a love of art, beauty & learning, an environment of kindness & happiness, a studio where we all work together in a beautiful, professional & artistic space.

Throughout the program, students can explore a variety of mediums, which encourages a love of learning, independence, creativity & artistic flow.

Students create NEW projects each session, they are guided by our talented instructors, using professional art supplies & are encouraged to engage in talks about inspirational artists.

Artwork Status

Please Note: We aim to fire clay in order of date but sometimes this is not possible due to space in the kiln or thickness of the art pieces. Clay pieces may need up to 3 weeks to dry.
