DRESS FOR MESS!!!  Art materials can stain! Bring an apron or wear old clothes to art class!!! You may purchase a "Hidden Talent" art apron for $25.00. One size fits all for kids.

If a class is missed, please schedule a makeup with your teacher. You MUST make-up the class by the end of the following session, or the credit will be lost.

Our goal as art instructors is to teach the fundamentals of fine art to help students build the technical skills they need by using traditional methods. At the same time, we encourage self-expression which fosters decision-making skills, imagination, and self-confidence. The problem-solving skills and fine motors they develop carry over to help in academic subjects. Studies have shown that art is beneficial to all aspects of learning.

We strive to purchase American-made and recycled/environmentally safe materials as much as possible to help our economy and protect our planet. 

Hidden Talent Art Studio

a brief history…

Jean Skamra and Shana Sundstrom met in 2002 and soon realized they had the same vision of one day opening an art studio. They joined forces and began an art teaching venture in 2006 at some local Private Schools. In 2010, their dream of opening an art studio came to fruition.

Jean and Shana have over 14 years experience of teaching art to children at school locations and art studios. This includes volunteer work at a local non-profit gallery where they spear-headed two children’s art programs.  Jean and Shana both earned their BFA's at Bay Area Universities. Both are ECE certified, and have been exhibiting their own artwork for over 20 years.
