As families celebrate graduations and the end of another school year, we are busy gearing up for an exciting and art filled summer at ARTSi Studio!

On June 28, a crew of happy artists joined us for our Summer Fun Painting Party. Each artist painted a crab beach painting and they all did an amazing job!

Our Art Camp for Creative Kids begins July 10th and we have three awesome weeks to choose from: Art Explorers, Master Artists, and Art Safari. Choose your favorite week and register- WE STILL HAVE SPACE available! Click here for more info.

We can’t wait to see you in the studio this summer!!




As November comes to a close, I’d like to take this moment to say Thank You!

Last spring I embarked on this crazy adventure of starting a small business, unsure of what the future may bring… Numerous birthdays, painting parties, and art classes later, I am happy to say that ARTSi Studio is going strong!

Our Winter Wonderland Painting Party on December 10th sold out quickly, so we are now offering an evening time slot. 

We now have a local venue to hold our classes and events! The Long Valley Arts/Teen Center has the perfect studio space for our children’s classes and painting parties.

Winter Session Registration opens on December 1st for classes in drawing, painting, collage, origami and sculpture. I am finalizing details for upcoming adult workshops and FREE events as well!

I really appreciate the enthusiastic and positive feedback from all of the parents, families, and young artists who have participated in my ARTSi Studio classes or events. I feel privileged to be able spend my time with such creative kids!


The first ARTSi Studio Comic Con was a grand success!

Yesterday evening, students arrived to class VERY excited about their BIG event. They spent the first half of class added finishing touches to their comic books and preparing Comic Con posters and Meet the Artist sheets. Finally it was time to set up. 

Each artist got their station ready, laying out all their sketches and displaying their comic books. It was a flurry of activity! All the proud cartoonists stood ready for their fans to arrive. 

The guests poured in and fanned out around the room. Photos were snapped all around and the artists answered questions about their work. Family and friends were duly impressed by their creativity and originality. As I passed out ARTSi totes for the kids to take their work home in, one boy exclaimed, “Is the Comic Con ending already?!”

These young artists worked very hard for six weeks on their original comic book stories and it showed. The process wasn’t always easy, but they kept at it. Our cartooning class was even featured in the local newspaper! (article)

Thank you everyone for making the first Adventures in Cartooning class such an inspiring experience! Keep on creating!
