*Due to government mandates and COVID-19 restrictions, all Fall registration (and beyond) has been paused at our Marin location until further notice. 

It started with an idea. The idea grew walls. The walls became our home. If we have the courage to pause our paint brushes, step back, and wait for the bigger picture to come into focus, the journey becomes a work of heART.

Every day we have spent with you at our table has been the very best day. Since 2010, ARTifact has brought so much magic and joy to our community. You have colored our world and served as living proof that creativity can, does, and will bring us together. Again... and Again.

This is not the end. More like a responsible moment to pause and reflect, regather ourselves, and move forward with clear intention instead of chaos. We still have a whole lot of heART in us. Our students know ARTifact best: they built it, after all. Building it with you has been a dream come true. In this moment of awakening, there is no doubt the dream was and still is, real. Each and every one of our students carries a piece of the magic with them. We see it every day in the important work our children do as dreamers, tinkerers, and doers. We hope you will still use your magic beyond our four walls. Please do. Your magic is beautiful. Your magic is meaningful. Your magic is Real. Our future is bright because you are bright.

Shine on.

 

 

With Peace and Love,

All of us at ARTifact 

"I can't begin to tell you how much (my daughter) is enjoying her art classes. She is so proud of the work she brings home. I might have mentioned to you already some months ago, in the course of conversation over lunch, (my daughter) informed me that our wood dining table is opaque. What a great little word for her to know at 4 :) What she explained to me today however trumps everything, using big words like sarcophagus, shabti, hieroglyphs, and canopic. She remembered all these words and so much detail of what you have been covering in class. What interesting material and what a fantastic experience you give our children, thank you."

(Our son) loved his time on Tuesday afternoons. He quickly decided it was the best day of the week and came home with bright eyes, a happy heart and singing himself to sleep. Thank you. It's the first after school activity that he has truly loved and has helped him further explore his passions in art with an entwined bonus of history!

Your teachers are amazing instructors! Full of knowledge, energy, kindness and encouragement. Top notch.

Thank you for creating an amazing art studio and programs for the children. We are the fortunate beneficiaries!

Intentional and Authentic ART.

As best we can, we like to honor the integrity of the artists and objects we study. We create our curriculum with the help of those who really own a part of the narrative; through their own eyes and through their own voice. When we share a seat at our ART table, we are also sharing dialogue in a deeply meaningful way.
