Enrichment Classes & Clubs
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.

Santa Cruz Museum of Natural History
The Santa Cruz Museum of Natural History has connected people to the wonders of nature for over 100 years. Located above Seabright Beach, the Museum highlights the region’s diverse plant, animal, and human communities from the shoreline of Monterey Bay to the summit of the Santa Cruz Mountains. We strive to fulfill our mission of connecting people with nature and science to inspire stewardship of the natural world through an array of educational programs and exhibits focused on the natural and cultural history of our region.
Get wet — at least up to your elbows — in the touch pool, featuring live local inter-tidal plants and animals.
Framed by an enormous mural depicting everyday life in an Ohlone village, the Native Peoples of Santa Cruz exhibit explores life in Santa Cruz prior to the arrival of Europeans.
The far end of the Museum hosts many exhibits representing the ecosystems and native animal life of the Santa Cruz region. Visit the live honeybee display, giving you a peek at the inside of a working hive. A beautiful live “chocolate phase” king snake gives you a close-up view of a typical resident of the coastal California region.
On display you will find… Owls, Hawks and a Golden Eagle ~ Reptiles and Amphibians ~ Foxes and Coyotes ~ Bobcat and Mountain Lion ~ Jack Rabbits and Brush Rabbits ~ Great Blue Heron and Great Egret ~ California Quail and Hummingbirds ~ Song Birds, Nests and Calls ~ Squirrels, Raccoons and Skunks ~ Monarchs and Banana Slugs
SLV Swim Center
Our lessons and style of teaching focus on water safety, proper breathing, and having fun. We have classes ranging from baby classes to competitive training. You must pre schedule by contacting us to join the class that’s right for you.
All our classes are 1/2hr long.
We have three students per instructor in our group lessons. Each lesson is a half an hour long. We schedule the students together based on skill and age.
We don’t use skill groups to schedule, instead we talk and get to know more about the student, their needs, and your schedule. We do our best to group you in the class that is the best fit for the swimmer so you always get a great class.

SPCA Summer Camp 2019
The kids of today are the companion animal guardians of tomorrow. To curb issues like animal abuse, neglect, and over-population in the future, we have created fun-filled programs that help young people understand animals and make positive choices for their community, now and for the rest of their lives.
Before Registering for Camp:
Please click the FAQ tab of our Humane Education page to get some basic information about camp that may answer some of the questions you have.
Please make sure your student is in the appropriate camp week, which is based on age group.
Please call us first if you have a student who suffers from animal allergies to determine if it is safe for them to attend camp.
Each camp week is essentially the same so please be aware of that if you are signing up for more than one week.
If registering for someone else please make sure all of that person’s contact information is in the registration as we will need to be in contact with them.
We recommend our camp for students under the age of 12. If your student is 12 or older they can sign up to be a camp counselor with us. Contact Sydney Lindquist at firstname.lastname@example.org
