Oakland is a city known for its art—it's often listed as one of the main attractions for visitors. Normally, we have the privilege of seeing art come to life in our studio on a daily basis. But since our own studio is shut down, we're looking for new, creative ways to engage with Oakland while staying safe.

2020-01-07T17:40:14-08:00

It’s hard to believe 20 years have passed since establishing our first (and much smaller) studio in Berkeley. We kicked off 2019 with a renewed dedication to expanding class offerings, adding dozens of new options and bringing back several old favorites. We also expanded our Fuego Youth Leadership Program and introduced the first in a three-year OUSD grant-funded partnership with McClymonds High School.
