"It's simple! We love art and we love making art  with kids and teens."

Our Studio

Blooming Arts House is nestled in a quiet Northwest Bakersfield residential neighborhood. A little hidden gem for kid’s art classes, adult art events, art parties and open studio classes. 

“Every child is an artist. The problem is how to remain an artist once he grows up.”

― Pablo Picasso

Meet Christine

Blooming Arts House is a life-long dream come true! Thanks to my husband I now have an amazing art studio and I am honored to share my space with kids and adults in the community.

My greatest joy is watching young artist’s bloom. My house has been the go-to art making place for neighborhood kids for years.

Educated at the East Carolina School of Art, I spent years as wall muralist. I then retired for a while to spend ample time with my grandson. I currently work with acrylics, collage, pastels, and mixed media developing projects for kids and adults. 

"It takes a village to raise children. Me and my daughter Shelby are honored to be part of that village." 




Meet Shelby

My daughter Shelby (27) began her art journey at 2 years old and is now a very accomplished artist. She participates in local art events, often commissioned for paintings. 

Shelby loves kids and adopts each art bloomer as her own. She leads classes for kids and adults at Blooming Arts House when she is not creating her next masterpiece.
