Discover Your Creativity Through
Art Instruction

Candace Troy Studios is an art studio in Pacifica, California, specializing in teaching children, teens, and adults how to begin reaching their full artistic potential through creative skill building art instruction. We provide a positive and creative learning environment for both children and adults in order to support their ability to learn how to bring out their own inner artist. Art education plays a major role in a child’s academic and social development. Children benefit from art instruction by excelling in school, getting along with siblings, and learning how to integrate life challenges. It is important to recognize and develop the joy of individual expression at an early age, and over time it continues to develop.
