The Artist Lab Irvine Front Door

History

Get to Know Us

Established in 2015. The Artist Lab is a spacious studio located in Irvine at the Parkview Center (University Dr and the 405 Freeway). Our original "Little Artist Lab" was founded in 2015 in Tustin, and in a few short years, we have gained immense trust and popularity in our neighboring communities within art-loving families. The Artist Lab, and our centers iLearn Education and Design Center, welcome 600+ families regularly each week, coming from all over Orange County, and virtually from around the globe. We are growing in both students and the development of beautiful Art-Making to enrich our vast communities! ​ The Artist Lab, branched off from our original Little Artist Lab, was created to bring communities together through the Arts, and to keep Art alive in our collective families—passed down from history, nurtured in the present, and to continue growing creativity in the future generations to come. We believe Art is humanity’s most universal language, and important to prioritize in our daily lives.  It allows us lets us express, understand, show compassion, sustain, grow, and connect within our diverse cultures and interconnect global world. Art is necessary and crucial to gain a deeper understanding of one’s self, to pass down historical and cultural memories, to perceive beauty and what it means to be alive, to survive and solve problems, and grow as mentally, emotionally, and spiritually-strong individuals. The Artist Lab is a highly refined art studio with diverse art practices taught to children, youth, and teens by our professional Fine Art educators from renowned art schools and all walks of life.  We specialize in Drawing & Painting, Ceramic Sculpture, Sewing Art, Jewelry-Making & Design, and Miniature Design. Within each specialty, we introduce and expose students to very unique and diverse forms of art mediums, such as tempera, watercolors, gauche, acrylics, oil paints and pastels, graphite, charcoal, ink and pen, markers, low-fire clay, needle and thread, felt, fabric patterns & textiles, colored polymer clay, beads, and much, much more! Each medium is crucial for students to unlock their potential, explore their creativity, develop their own interests, and to build a life-long passion of being an Artist in many different forms. The Artist Lab believes that there is a creative Artist within our inner child, within every single one of us—from children, to adults, to elders.  As Picasso once said, “Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.” As society introduces more advancements, challenges, and distractions, it is more important than ever to give our children the means of expression and creativity to thrive and endure throughout their lives. The Artist Lab believes in access to Art Education to all children. We strive to build collective community—bridging diverse families, cultures, histories, and socio-economic gaps through our enriching art programs and outreach events.  Within The Artist Lab, children work and learn together and from one another in a cohesive, collaborative, and inclusive environment that advocates for community building, diversity, and equality.  We aim to elevate each other through the arts, and appreciate each child’s own creativity that is tapped into the world’s collective beauty. We aspire to build future generations of creative, conscious, and compassionate artists that can better understand the diverse expressions of others and build sustaining art worlds.
