Our summer art enrichment programs are fun, interesting, educational, and get us all outside participating in the arts!

Participants will create art on location at areas of beauty and interest. Our studio is available for development of on-site work and in case of inclement weather. Chelsea and Richard of the ArtSplot have been conducting outdoor art enrichment activities with children ages six to seventeen for over twenty years and are first aid and CPR certified.

Chelsea and Richard Smith, the founders, owners, and operators of the ArtSplot and the Arts Centered Education Society, have been artists and art instructors in Montana schools since 1995 in an ever increasing capacity.
