MONART is MORE than just creating art!
Monart is an educational drawing method developed through grant funding from Pepperdine University in 1979. Monart teaches your child fundamental drawing skills that last a lifetime, while helping them develop their focus, fine motor skill, hand-eye coordination, problem solving and self-confidence in a fun and non-competitive environment. With the Monart Drawing Method, your child will show clear progress over time and learn techniques they can use outside the classroom!
Monart currently offers Summer Art Camps, Ongoing Studio Art Classes, After School Art Programs at Public & Private Schools, Girl Scouts Classes & Private Party Group Classes. Monart School of Art opened in Solana Beach back in 1992 as one of the founding Monart franchises. Since 1979 the Monart drawing method has been taught around the world through Mona Brooke's best selling book Drawing With Children. The original owner, Cynthia Stringfellow, set out to offer art classes and camps to children of all skill levels throughout the community. Since 1992, Monart has placed a high priority on offering art classes at public and private schools in addition to our studio in order to address the decrease of art programs in schools. The current owner, Leslie Vaughn, has been working to grow the school and extend our classes to more children in more schools throughout San Diego county. Our studio is currently based at Liberty Station in beautiful Point Loma.
