Pachis art studio for kids is located in Liberty Station.
We offer art classes for kids based on an original art curriculum designed by founder and owner Juliana Flores.
Pachis is not a typical art studio for children, and does not offer typical art classes. We offer a program based on process art. Pachis is founded on the belief that children are born inherently creative and can discover themselves through artistic expression.
Pachis encourages children to think outside the “art box” and introduces them to new ways to make and experience art. Our art programs encourages self-expression, builds self-esteem, and cultivates outstanding, creative individuals.
Inspire families to live a more creative life.
MEET THE TEAM
owner & founder
Hello! I’m Ms. Juliana, the owner and founder of Pachis art studio. I found my love for working with children during my college years at UCSD. A few years after working on Film/Video/Radio I started writing a creative curriculum to promote and support the development of living a better life through the art process. That’s how Pachis art studio was born.
I am the mother of 2 girls, a wife to a wonderful software engineer and we live a creative life by incorporating art in our daily lives, traveling, going on adventures and being exposed to cultural events throughout San Diego.
Hi! I'm Chelsea Perkins, or as I'm known at Pachis, Ms. Chelsea. I am a San Diego native who has recently returned home after living in Ohio, France, and Germany for eight years. I'm a formally trained fine artist who loves all things Process Art! I've taught young artists from 18 months to 18 years old.
At home with my own two children, I've always made creative play a priority.
When I'm not at Pachis teaching littles, you can find me whipping up a batch of colorful play dough or slime with my three year old, or working on illustrations with my eight year old. I say yes to as many creative opportunities as possible for myself and my children, and am so happy to be able to do the same for our students at Pachis.
WHAT PEOPLE SAY
Pachis is a great art studio for kids. My kids (8 & 10) felt like the time went too fast! They did not want to leave! Juliana offers more than just art projects, but education about the world around us. She truly cares about kids. Her studio is clean, kid-friendly, and ready for fun! If you are looking for a fun space to let your kids learn something new, or to just have fun, go see what is happening at the studio today!
I asked Anna if her party was as fun as she hoped it would be and she said, 'No, Mommy – it was even BETTER than I thought it would be.' :-)
I can't say enough about Pachis. My kids have been coming here for months and every week they learn something new and come home with an amazing project. One of the things I love the best is that Juliana doesn't just sit them down have them make something. They actually LEARN about a subject (ie. architecture, a specific artist, etc) and draw their inspiration from that. I also love that she does art from recycled and non-traditional materials. My kids' creativity has been developed so much from her classes! If you are looking for art classes for your kids, this is the place to go.
