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.

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.

WELCOME! WE CAN’T WAIT TO MEET YOU.
Programming is communicating your ideas to a computer in a language designed to make that communication easy and intuitive. By learning this language, you and your students can create almost anything and get a head start on a major 21st Century Skill. At Code Naturally, we emphasize self-paced curriculum and collaborative support to help students excel at coding and creating.
COLLABORATION Learning to code is a team sport. Students quickly learn the value of working together to fix bugs and to pursue large project ideas.
CRITICAL THINKING Students must understand what they’re trying to get the computer to do before they can communicate it.
CREATIVITY Students have creative freedom over how they choose to fulfill project requirements and can always code their own projects for fun.
