Located in a beautiful old brick building in the heart of Downtown Kingston with large windows that frame the bustling street, our children’s art studio is a full of natural light. The perfect place, lovely, cozy & welcoming, for students to create & experience the joy of making art.
Our program follows 4Cats pedagogy founded on building a world that encourages a love of art, beauty & learning, an environment of kindness & happiness, a studio where we all work together in a beautiful, professional & artistic space.
Throughout the program, students can explore a variety of mediums, which encourages a love of learning, independence, creativity & artistic flow.
Students create NEW projects each session, they are guided by our talented instructors, using professional art supplies & are encouraged to engage in talks about inspirational artists.

Meet Your Team
A group of friends & artists working together for the love of art.
Christine Ho came to the Kingston 4Cats family in July 2020 with a background in Art History from Carleton University, and Museum and Cultural Management from Centennial College. Christine loves to share her fervent passion for art history and painting, always having a fun fact about artists in her back pocket. While she is not at the studio creating beautiful works of art with her students, Christine loves to cuddle up with her cat Oreo and some fresh baked cookies while continuing her art practice. She also loves to do yoga, bake, and play board games with friends and family. Christine strives to ensure every artist she interacts with walks away having learned something new, and created something they are proud of.
Jessie Gamarra is a teacher, an artist, and a lifelong learner! Jessie studied art history for over six years at Carleton University, and recently became an Ontario Certified Teacher in visual arts. As a new member of the Kingston community, she loves exploring the city and learning about the rich history around every corner! When Jessie isn’t at the studio busily creating, you can find her at home, making knit-works on her loom.
Please Note: We aim to fire clay in order of date but sometimes this is not possible due to space in the kiln or thickness of the art pieces. Clay pieces may need up to 3 weeks to dry.
