Art Classes for Children and Adults

Welcome to Art Smart Studio and Gallery!

I'm thrilled to share my love of art and all its joys with children and adults in our community.

My mission at all times is to foster a fun and happy place where everyone can express and nurture his/her own unique creativity. I believe everyone is talented, and my goal is to help it sprout and grow. In the end, there is nothing more joyful than seeing a student with a sense of accomplishment and an emboldened self-esteem.

My teaching philosophy is reflected in these remarks:

"Success is peace of mind which is a direct result of self-satisfaction in knowing you made the effort to become the best of which you are capable." John Wooden, UCLA Basketball Coach

"Creativity can solve almost any problem. The creative act, the defeat of habit by originality, overcomes everything." George Lois, American Art Director

"Vision starts with a blank sheet of paper. Our students fill it and make it come to life!" Stacy Pae, Art Smart Studio Teacher
