Spring Break Camps
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
