About Us

We are proud to present ARTFIRST ARTEPRIMERO, a fine art studio for children. Where imagination is inspired and set on stage through Spanish! Our main goals are to create a world filled with cultural understanding through art and language and to empower children by nurturing their creativity, confidence, problem-solving skills, and non-verbal communication skills through their expression in VISUAL ARTS, THEATER, MUSIC and DANCE!

  • We offer a safe, loving, and artistic environment where your children will learn Spanish the same way their native language was learned-through immersion and play!

  • ArtFirst ArtePrimero emphasizes the art work of Great Masters: Fernando Botero, Frida Kahlo, Pablo Picasso, Yayoi Kusama 草間 彌生, Alma Thomas, Diego Rivera, Hayao Miyazaki, Takashi Murakami, Amy Sherlad and so much more!

  • ARTFIRST ARTEPRIMERO is designed for children K-6th grade. Through the duration of the program, we will engage in traditional celebrations for holidays, family days, and special events and performances. All materials, including costumes, are included in the fee.


My kids love ArtFirst! I love ArtFirst! The team puts their heart and soul into this wonderful program. Marla had a brilliant idea to blend her passion for art with her love of language and it shows in how well my kids have responded and grown. It is important that as parents in this community, we fully embrace and support this program wholeheartedly; it is good for the community, it is good for our kids!

Arte Primero is an excellent art based program where students explore the world through the lens of the creative caring teachers.


It's wonderful to see the children get excited about hands on arts and crafts. Marla has created a wonderful space you allow creativity and self-esteem grow!

ArtFirst is an amazing program! Marla is passionate and knowledgeable about art, culture and encouraging each child to reach their creative potential. With her boundless energy, she has been a strong, positive role model for my three kids in the After School and Summer Camp programs. This past fall, my daughter and I participated in the ArtePrimero tour to Cancun, Mexico to celebrate Day of the Dead at the ecological park, Xcaret. It truly was an experience we will never forget. We were immersed in the traditional sights, sounds and tastes of this rich Mexican festival honoring those who have departed. Marla was a wonderful guide who made each day very special.
