Art Soup- A Drop In Art Studio for Kids

     Well, it's officially August and that means some of you are pulling your hair out as try to figure out how to occupy and delight your children during these dog days of summer.  If you can get to Encinitas, a delightful new option has sprung up in the plaza by the police station off of El Camino Real.  It's called Art Soup, where you can "explore your natural curiosity and create your own masterpiece."

What is Art Soup?

Art Soup is a creative, art-based social club experience where kids are encouraged to ignite their creative spark, explore for their natural curiosity, imagination, and ideas free from the rules and confines of mom's kitchen.

 Art Soup offers an imaginative world and hands-on activity gallery for 2-12 year olds. Drop in any time between 9:30-5:00 (they close at 5:30pm) M-F where your kids can explore our Open Studio Activities or opt for our seated Art Studio experience for only $10. They are open Saturdays 9:30-5:30 pm.  Check the calendar for Sunday schedules - they close for private parties and special events.

     Ongoing projects include painting a VW bug that is stationed in the corner of the room, easel painting, drawing, chalk art...just plain creating!  During Spring Break and summer they offer themed camps, and here's a bonus: weekdays they have a $5 morning special from 9:30 to 10:30 am.

Check out their website for more information:

Their brick-and-mortar address is 191 N. El Camino Blvd., Suite 203,  Encinitas 92024 and their number is (760) 230-2060.  Hope you can visit!
