Get Art Kits to Go
Flutterby Open Art Studio has adapted and is now providing Art Kits to Go on the first Saturday of every month. Each kit is $10 and provides five craft projects. Pick up is from 10am to 12pm and you must register in advance so they are sure not to run out. ARTree's Flutterby Saturday is supported, in part, by the Los Angeles County Board of Supervisors through the Los Angeles County Arts Commission, the City of Santa Clarita and more.

"Our boys Jacob, 6 years old, and Luke, 4 years old, have been attending Santa Clarita School of Performing Arts since August 2020. They are training twice a week on Commercial Acting and Basic Acting Exercises. SCSOPA offers a huge variety of classes for different age groups. The school does not only invest on skills in performing arts but also on life skills that bring out self-esteem and confidence in every student. The students also get to meet with high-caliber agents every weekend for auditions. Mike and his staff are very professional and dedicated. Their expertise and guidance have paved the way for wonderful opportunities. Our boys had this rare chance meeting with LA's top tier. We never thought things would happen this quick. In just about six weeks with SCSOPA, both have secured representation with an agency. Jacob is already booked for an upcoming project and we are just so excited to see what the future holds for our boys. Thank you SCSOPA for getting us started in the industry!"
