2020 Kids Online Art Exhibition—Art About Me

Due to COVID19 our after school classes have been cancelled, as well as the show in MOS, but check out our online kids art exhibition on our YouTube Channel featuring work from the winter/spring after school class session.

We are grateful for all the kids who share their creativity with us in our after school classes each week!

Community Heroes 8th Annual Day of Giving

We were excited to partner with the nonprofit Community Heroes youth project and Marin County schools to present the 7th Annual DAY OF GIVING on March 8 in San Rafael! We were there with hundreds of local students

and their families, devoting Sunday morning to compassion, community building and climate action! There was tree plantings, park clean-up, urban gardening, eco art, eco-friendly cooking for shelter residents, crafting superhero capes and cozy blankets for hospitalized children and those in need, care kit assembly, and so much more.

We also want to thank Lemons and Lavender for helping us out with our eco art project!

Fun times at our 2019 Summer Camps

A fun time was had by all at our 2019 Summer Camps!   Students spent time practicing their drawing skills, making uncontrollable art, and creating components of their own home art studios.  Depending on the camp some students got to sketch from their favorite paintings and photos in the MSA Gallery, paint blindfolded, and even meet and talk with some of the artists when visiting their studios.  Thanks to everyone who participated and made this our best summer camp season yet!  We look forward to offering more fun camps in the 2020 summer season.
