Studio Neptune is a professional art  studio located in the heart of Bethesda offering vibrant after school art classes and a summer like no other.

Studio Neptune's unique projects inspire our students to create original and highly personal drawings, paintings, mixed media art and 3D sculptures. Occasional critiques provide a meaningful exchange between students during class time and curated class exhibits allow them to share their work in a gallery setting.

School year classes for ages 8-11 and 11-14 are offered in four consecutive sessions beginning in late September. Although it is advantageous for a student to experience all the different mediums, techniques, and ideas that are presented in our studio from September to May, no one session is a prerequisite for another. Please also note that our classes are intentionally limited in size, therefore, seats in upcoming sessions cannot be reserved without registering. You can register for any or all of the sessions at any time.

Our summer program welcomes children ages 8-14 and runs for ten weeks beginning in mid-June. Since 1999 we have looked to small businesses near our studio as the catalyst for our weekly projects. The experience of visiting these businesses provides a fresh perspective for our students to create their art. A walk-able city, great small businesses, and the creative kids who attend each week make this summer program fun and memorable.
