Who are we?


ArtSea Studio began with a simple idea to bring our love for art to the people in our community.  We seek to provide you with an opportunity for a creative outlet or simply a fun night out.  So many children are born with a penchant for art and we wanted to give children in our neighborhood a chance to extend their love for art further than the school classroom.
