Bravo School of Art offers over 50 unique hands-on art, craft and home decorating classes, workshops and summer camps for adults and children to explore their creativity in a safe, supportive and fun environment. Taught by experienced artists, these workshops provide the creative outlet you’ve been seeking.


Theatre Arts School of San Diego offers theatre classes ranging from music/movement and creative play classes for pre-school age children to advanced acting and musical theatre classes for pre-teens and teens. Their mission is to teach young people the cornerstones of theatrical technique and training in a non-competitive environment in which the individual creative potential of each child is encouraged and equally balanced with his/her collaboration with the group. A solid foundation in the theatre arts is provided, where the focus is not only on the final product, but the process of artistic learning.

Liberty School at Bravo

Once a week for 11 weeks, Bravo School of Art is host to 20+ third grade students from Dewey Elementary School because of a grant funding this program through the Liberty School. With art classes all but eliminated in San Diego City School District, these young students are able to experience the enrichment that the arts provide. Taught by Pamela Calore and Patricia Hyman, these children are inspired and are great artists!

Liberty School is an innovative educational program at NTC at Liberty Station. This program offers at-risk students from San Diego County schools an opportunity to work with resident non-profit and civic organizations on project-based learning that supplements and enriches standards-based classroom instruction. Liberty School Program extends learning to the NTC at Liberty Station campus and engages the resident organizations’ teaching expertise and program offering to students who, without the program, would not have access to such professional instruction.

Art A-Go-Go

Art A-Go-Go student's Print

Art A-Go-Go‘s last session for this summer is today. I think the children who took the 3 separate 4-week series enjoyed themselves. I know I did as I sat on the sidelines, listening, watching and occasionally putting in my 2¢. Oh, and taking photos.

Each week the students learned a new technique (or in some cases: reviewed). Their projects ranged from relief printmaking to wire sculpture to self portraits painted on canvas to collage and much more. Imaginations set free to create… the students and Sharon Novak, their instructor.

I witness some growth and some great little gems of art.

My favorites are still in the camera… the self portraits.. Stay tuned for more.
