What you want is the YAWS classes at the little studio at totland.

There used to be an arts program st Tot Land (McGee Ave. in Berkeley). Hope it's still operating. Kaylen Mayer runs a great summer camp for young artists

    Re: Art classes in East Bay for 8 & 10 yos

    we LOVE YAWS! jen also runs a fabulous summer camp: we're always blown away by the art that comes home after a yaws class/camp. and our kids (7 and 9) have loved going to her classes for the past 4+ years. emily

    Re: Drawing Class for 6 year old
    I recommend that you look in to the art program YAWS run by Jennifer Burke. Jen has the skills to bring out the most creative work from children. My children have loved working with her. She is a woman with a deep soul and a soaring spirit! richtoad

    Dear Berkeley Parents, the two most wholesome camps my daughter ever attended were YAWS (Jennifer Burke (YAWS ART CAMP) 510 220-8408 jennyaws[at] Jennifer the (Master Mind of K-3 Art Classes at Prospect Sierra) has amazed many of us in the past years with her brilliant ideas. Tom's in Canyon (between Montclair and Moraga) 925 210-7460 continously amazes young ears as they hear of princesses so beautiful that they get blinded by their own beauty. We always carpooled and it is a sure old fashioned summer treat for every child set within a Redwood Grove and a brook to boot. Martina
