Mission

Studio ACE is dedicated to enriching lives through Arts, Community and Education.

programming

Studio ACE has four main areas of programming, all relating to arts education:

  1. ArtsConnect: An Integrated Arts Curriculum Program ~ The signature program of Studio ACE, ArtsConnect is a K-8 elementary school program that integrates the arts with Common Core subjects. It employs Visual and Performing Arts Standards, the Elements and Principles of Art and the project’s connection to Art History. For more information, please click HERE.

  2. Art Classes ~ ACE’s storefront location provides low-cost art lessons to children. Children’s classes are supplemented in part by a donor, enabling children to receive high-quality art lessons at an affordable price. Adult class fees also assist in supplementing children’s classes. 

  3. Community Festivals ~ ACE participate in art walks, fairs and festivals in and around the community, providing a free art project to complement the theme of the fair or festival. 

  4. Community Collaborations ~ ACE collaborates with community members on specific programming, working with organizations such as the Oceanside Library, Oceanside Cultural Arts Foundation, Oceanside Fire Fighters, City of Oceanside, Buena Vista Nature Center and the Museum of Making Music. 

 

Vision

  1. Arts. There is a severe lack of arts education for children and adults in the North County San Diego area. In the Oceanside Unified School District alone there is little or no arts education for students until they reach high school. Studio ACE fills the gap by offering arts enrichment programs throughout the community.

  2. Community. North County San Diego is one of the most culturally diverse and ethnically rich areas in the United States. While these cultures are recognized and observed through festivals and other offerings, there is a lack of awareness in the community about the diversity of the community itself. Studio ACE brings awareness and celebrates diversity through community events and actions. The arts are a perfect vehicle to accomplish these goals.

  3. Education. Education should be the cornerstone of society. With education, the world opens up. Studio ACE works with community leaders, organizers, and teachers to educate the community and make it stronger.
