We teach interested students from age 5 on up. Our skilled instructors encourage learning and mastering basic drawing skills to create artwork you can be proud of from day one.

Our variety of art classes in drawing and painting in Thousand Oaks encourage the unique creativity of each student and don't involve watching videos, or reading books beforehand. The difference at Art is Our Passion is that our instructors have a college degree in art or design. Start at any time with a particular program that best matches a student's experience and individual interest in art. Each student's progress is charted by completion of a defined list of projects in all of our art classes for kids and adults. We ask only for a month-to-month commitment. All studio classes maintain a maximum of four students per instructor.

Our small group art classes offer:
