Winter Break Camps
The Art Factory
We are an all ages art studio located in the Historic Redwood Village of Aptos. Here you will find a range of classes for kids and adults, with small class sizes and both indoor and outdoor environments to learn and create. Art Factory instructors bring cross curricular experience to art education, using art as a medium to explore everything from history to mathematics to science. With an emphasis on art history, technique and creative expression, students will develop or expand their art practice. Use our classes to enrich your child’s education or for your own creative retreat.
Summer Camp Classes: Fiber Arts, Enchanted Gardens, 4th of July Parade Camp, Birds Around the World, Ultimate Comics & Legos, Cats!Cats!Cats! Tiny World: Miniature Creations, Art for the County Fair, Extreme Cuteness: Baby Animals
With an early love for Art and Art Education, Yvette began her formal education in Philadelphia, starting as a high school student attending Moore College of Art. She went on to receive her Degree in Visual Communications & Graphic Design at The Art Institute of Philadelphia and soon after, received her BFA & K-12 Art Teaching Certification from Rosemont College, PA.
Yvette has been giving art lessons to adults & children since 1990. Her guiding passion is bringing art into the lives of her students. You will also find her teaching art at the Cabrillo College Stroke Center and at Santa Cruz Montessori. When not in the studio/classroom, Yvette continues her freelance career as a technical illustrator and commercial artist.
Join us at The Art Factory for our 12th year of extraordinary art camp! Due to Covid-19, we are running a virtual program this year.
Camps are 1 week long and meet for 2 hours per day, June 8 through August 28. We have countless themes for three separate age groups: 5-7, 8-12, 12-17
• Will camps meet in person?
No. Not until further notice. All classes are on zoom. Wait, wait… read on!
• What if I’m afraid my kids are all zoomed out?
Don’t worry, we have personal contact instruction down! Our classes exude fun, creativity and innovation! It’s the next best thing to being in the studio with us.
• Can we still count on the small class sizes that we love about your in-studio camps, even though we are online?
Of course! We believe in quality contact instruction and will continue to bring our students dynamic, engaging content with a very personal touch.
• Are classes recorded?
No way! Every one of our 49 different camps is live, fully interactive with 2 hour meetings that will fly by each day.
• Can a 5-7 year old sit through 2 hour classes?
Absolutely. We have all the tricks, breaks and focused work time down to a science.
• Can my brother’s son in Idaho join a class with my son here in Aptos?
You bet! The Art Factory is now worldwide. Help us spread the word!
• What about art supplies?
A supply list is on our website. Most likely, you can gather these common supplies from your home collection. Otherwise, there is time to order what you need. If you need help with supplies, we can help!
What if we’ve never been to art camp, or an art class before?
WELCOME! WE CAN’T WAIT TO MEET YOU.
