the language taught in arte dives deeply into technique and intention.  questions, wondering, discoveries and a kind respect for the process is what inspires the beautiful exchange between araceli carrera and her students.


"I've had the pleasure of taking art classes and dance classes from araceli.  one of the qualities of her art teaching style that I most admire is her ability to highlight each student's individual strengths.  she encourages her students to trust their choices, problem solve and be gentle with themselves in their creative process.  It is such a pleasure to participate in Araceli's classes, and I look forward to many more opportunities to do so!" -Kayla 

I love Araceli's art class and have a fun time making art.  the pieces we make are beautiful and we are always encouraged to make the art our own! (also there's great music)" -Soleil

Just wanted to say thank you sooooo much for being an amazing teacher and for your presence in my life.  I cant thank you enough for the life changing experience you have brought me through the arts -Kanna

Making art with Araceli is truly magical.  After the first class I experienced, I told everyone I loved it because I wanted them to experience the joy and peace that comes through making the different art pieces in her class.  It feels so good to spend time creating something from your heart, and she helps each art student find their own purpose to put heart in their art.  My friend told me that she normally gets nervous in art classes, but with araceli (whom she had never met before), she felt free to create.  I would recommend these classes to anyone looking for little ways to create self-love and creative expression in their lives. -Julie
