Welcome to Paradiso Arts, a mobile studio inspired by the Reggio Emilia Approach serving the West Side of Los Angeles.   Paradiso Arts lessons are taught by artist and educator, Laura Alvarez, MFA, who facilitates your child’s interests, meets them where they are, encourages collaboration, promotes experimentation, and above all the enjoyment of being creative!

The Latest:
•Looking for some support for your children during #stayhome? Email Laura at parsadisoarts@gmail.com to set up a remote art lesson or group class. If you need a list of art supplies to get you started, we’ve got you covered. If you want to just start simple –– paper, a pencil and an eraser are all you need.

•Remote adult privates and groups can be set up as well during #stayhome. The focus can be on skill, creative expression, or just RELAXING. Art medium can be as basic as drawing, watercolor or mixed media! The groups can be a great way to stay in touch with friends, and maybe even be a reason to start a home practice that can serve you well in the future.

Playing a Zoom drawing game where each of us had to set up a still life from their home for the rest of us to draw. Super fun!
