My 13 year old son and 10 year old daughter both took the Graffiti & Street Art, Level 1 camp this summer. My son described it as "awesome, unique and totally out of the ordinary". The kids stared off camp by coming up with their own graffiti or street name which they then parlayed into a lot of their work. Stenciling was one of their favorite, as was spray chalk. They came home at the end of this 5 day class with 1 large and 1 small board as well as a t-shirt they designed and many other pieces. They really liked their teacher. They said Nick was great.

This fall both of my children (ages 10 & 12) took the Fused Glass class. Fantastic! It was amazing to see what they created each week--bowls, plates, mirrors, tiles, etc. But what I loved most was how excited they were to see their pieces come back each week. They were both so proud of what they had made.

It is no secret we love Davis Studio so our daughter decided to have her 9th birthday party there and it couldn't have been a better choice! For her party she choose to make stuffed animals. That meant in the span of 2 hours twelve girls, many of whom had never sewn before, made these wonderful little cats and dogs out of socks with button eyes and felt ears. Sure, their stitches weren't perfect but the end result was absolutely adorable. When it came time for cake and presents, they rushed through so that they could get back to sewing! Judging by that, plus the fact that they were all hesitant to leave I would say it was a success. FYI - parties don't have to just be about sewing. Kids can opt to paint or make t-shirts as well.

Folk Art Camp was superb! Each day my daughter made/worked on a new piece of art, or two. In the short span of a week, they made one large acrylic painting, an adorable canvas tote bag, a super cool block sculpture, a tin pencil drawing in a cloth frame and even the invitation for Friday's art reception was its own little pièce de résistance. A highlight for our child was when they took the class outside and sketched in the park. All of the art she created is bound together by the common theme of Folk Art and as a result we have another beautiful collection courtesy of our daughter's time at Davis Studio.


I highly recommend sending your child to a class or camp here if they show any interest in further developing their art skills. I look back at our child's work from a year ago and can't believe how much she has grown and improved. Bravo Teresa!

Our daughter took her first Acrylic Painting class this Spring. We have been incredibly surprised by how much she has grown artistically in just a few short weeks. With Teresa's encouragement she is developing her art skills. She loves using more than just crayons, markers and paper. It is wonderful to use "real" materials like canvas and acrylic paints. Each week she is excited to go to class and is looking forward to the art show at the end so that she can proudly share her work with us.

Fairy & Fairy House Camp promised a week of enchantment and it delivered! Be it a Fairy Tale Damsels, flower girl, or princess, the girls all wasted no time getting into character. MC and Cheryl were absolutely wonderful teachers. Although the campers seemed like they could have spent all day in the studio, after lunch it was nice that they had outside time at Callahan Park. Our daughter has already declared that she could spend "every week of summer camp" at Davis Studio!

Davis Art Studio is Awesome! I signed my daughter up for a couple camps last summer because there isn't much else other than art that really interest her and she is too old for rec camp. She loved it! They put on an amazing week of camp and no two are alike. She was totally engaged each week and would come home and practice what she learned that day. At the end of the week, there is a reception for parents at pick up time that allows the kids to show case their work just like in a real studio. I didn't hear a complaint about having to go once. For the kids who are still wiggly, they do go outside around lunch which is often to a park that's within walking distance. Kids can bring their own lunch but if they choose lunch can be purchased at the cafe which serves amazing and healthy lunches. Great way to get a picky eater to try new things!
Davis is a bit pricey for a week long camp but it is worth the money and you will not be disappointed!

Great for teens! Here is a professional art studio in a convenient friendly setting. I took my granddaughter to a reception for her friend's digital photography class. We were both so impressed with the quality of the work. I've signed her up for a summer art class and can't wait to see the show at the end of the week.

My son and daughter have all taken several classes and camps at Davis Studio over the years. They have all been exceptional, inspiring and very fun! My kids have done everything from theatre, painting, glass making and graffiti (to name a few favorites). We feel lucky to have such a passionate + amazing place for our children to explore all mediums.

I'm happy to say that I have been to two classes at the Davis Studio and I'm impressed. I have a daughter with intensive special needs and they hold a class once a month for kids with Special Needs. It's so nice to be welcomed into the community by such an amazing group of people.

My two daughters have taken a number of classes at Davis Studio and have always had a great experience. The instructors are engaged and friendly, and work well with my children. The new studio is lovely, with a place to have a cup of tea and read a book while you wait to pick up your child. Highly recommended!

The Davis Studio is the place where my 12 year old can relax, be creative, and have fun with other children and adults. The programs and teachers have definitely played an important role in her overall education, especially while homeschooling during middle school. She has attended theater camp, Art & Academic Enrichment, Writing, and will soon experience her first Paint Night. She LOVES it! As a parent, I am grateful that my daughter is happy and relaxed in the space and when she comes home. The kind, fun, and talented teachers have fully supported her growth as a human being and artist. I can definitely see improvement in the way she approaches a project as well as the final result. My only complaint is that we don't have enough time to fit in more classes. An added benefit is that I've started taking classes and am finding the artist in me...it's never too late!...more

My kids have attended 2 days of camps at Davis Studio and loved it! It was one of the first camps they've attended that they "loved". They came home with so much proof of all that they do with kids. They even spent time outside. They loved it so much, it was the first camp they asked me to sign them up for for the Summer. Highly recommended!
