Perfect time, Perfect place!

Art Explorer after school classes are conveniently held on your child’s elementary school campus, start immediately after school ends, and typically last an hour. As supervision and safety are our highest priority, instructors will arrive at the designated classroom before students are released for the day. Kindergarteners will be picked up from their classes and personally led to art class.

After school classes are also held at the Art Explorers Studio. Join us in our beautiful studio facility for the same great art program as on the school campus but on different days and times. Parents drop off and pick up at our convenient location in Old Town Goleta, at 5370 Hollister Ave, Ste 2, near the intersection of Patterson and Hollister Ave. We also offer a variety of special workshops and programs during the year at this location.

Sessions are typically 10-12 weeks long, and max out at 18 students. We do not hold classes on minimum days, or any days that school is not in session. Don’t miss the Early Bird Discount of 10% when you register your child for the full school year!

Discover our fun and playful curriculum with whimsical animals, people and nature, still life, simple landscapes, and 3-D projects. Students gain self-confidence as they learn to draw, paint, sculpt, and collage while using artist quality media! Art Explorers guides young children in the transition from random scribbling to intentional drawing and helps them see how lines and shapes fit together to create recognizable forms. Projects never repeat – each session is new and different!
