ArtBeast Childrens Studio in Sacramento- Review and Giveaway!

April 23, 2011

 

If your child is a mini- Picasso and loves to paint, sculpt or just create- then a visit to Art Beast is a must for you and your family!
Art Beast is a “drop-in” art studio that provides children (predominately those under the age of 6) an opportunity to explore all aspects of the arts in a fun and comfortable setting.

Located in Mid-Town Sacramento (2226 K street), this children’s creative center is a 3-story “heaven” for children and their parents. With areas dedicated to dramatic play (costumes, puppets and everything needed to act out your children’s favorite fairytales), and musical instruments from around the world to inspire your little musicians.
The open studio is equipped with paint, brushes, paper, glue glitter, clay , sand and all sorts of objects to create any masterpiece.
Aprons are available- but as any smart moms knows… just dress them in anything other than their “Sunday best”. My kids were too excited to start painting the “wall” that I couldn’t even get the apron on in time before they had a paintbrush full of paint in hand!
Yes- they did paint the “wall”, an ingenious idea of Plexiglas and paint… an ever changing art piece on display.

The staff at ArtBeast are incredible. They are constantly refilling paint, wiping up spills, keeping the art studio clean and stocked while little hands explore. Moms and dads can relax and enjoy coffee and tea while their children create… who could ask for a better morning out??

While the studio is open and mostly a “Free-for-all”, they also have various classes throughout the week. Art classes, story times for pre-schoolers, children’s yoga and more, just check the website for specific days and times.

Between the dramatic play, painting, sculpting, music classes, and everything else- time had flown while we were there and luckily I had packed a lunch so we enjoyed a picnic on the outdoor patio (with even more outdoor play for the kids!).
If you plan on visiting ArtBeast, I suggest on arriving early and plan on several hours at the studio (we spent 4 hours there and my kids still didn’t want to leave!).
Make sure you wear clothes that you don’t mind getting some paint one and bring snacks for a picnic outside (weather permitting).

The cost is $8 per person and the proceeds from ArtBeast goes to the Tubman House, a residential community for homeless youth and children. So while you are visiting the studio and having fun with your children, you are also helping an entire community.

If you would like to visit ArtBeast, check out their website and see for yourself what they are all about and what they have to offer. Come back to this article and leave a comment as to why you would like to take your family to visit this amazing creative art center. The Sacramento Convention and Visitors Bureau will be randomly selecting one lucky winner to receive a family pack to admit up to 5 people into Art Beast.

The drawing will take place on Wednesday, April 27th at 12:00pm. Please get your comments in as soon as possible for a chance at this family fun day at ArtBeast!

Good luck and have fun creating!

    Mrs. Crivellone says it perfectly in her article. Art Beast is indeed both a mother’s and an artist’s dream come true. I can’t wait to get back there with hopefully my entire family, including Grandma, who loves art, too!

    Art Beast rules!!! My kindergartener got to go there for a field trip, and it was amazing! It’s everything Mrs. Crivellone said in her article – both a mother and an artist’s dream! Now I’ve got to get my younger child there, too, with her cousins for a “dream (play) date” of family fun!

    I’m dying to take my 11 month old here so he can expierence the many sides of art. He’d have an amazing time exploring his creative side without being limited by mommy who doesn’t want to clean up the afte math of his expressions! My 5 year old has been there since she was 3 and I know she had a great time skipping from room to room in happily making a new friend at each station. I think we are due to pay ArtBeast another visit!

    Would love to win this for my 3 boys. They are 4, 2 and 2 1/2 months. This would be so fun and I love the art and painting!

    It sounds like an awesome place for kids to get creative and have all kinds of fun doing the things you only wish you had the time and gumption to do with them at home! I definitely plan to take my little girl there. Thanks!

    Sounds like so much fun and a great way for the kids to get a chance to be creative (and not mess up my house)! Can’t wait to take my two little ones there.
