Summer programs with the ArtSplot are open for enrollment!

Our summer art enrichment programs are fun, interesting, educational, and get us all outside participating in the arts! You can enjoy painting, drawing with pastels, printmaking on the printing press, and pottery each on a seperate day. Costs include all art materials, transportation from studio to on-site locations, and snacks.

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. Annually, the ArtSplot teaches art education in over a dozen schools and averages twenty classroom visits per week, throughout the school year, engaging up to four hundred students weekly.
