Edgemoor Art Studio was founded by Ruth Johnsen, who saw the need for a place where children of all ages could learn art fundamentals, while freely exploring art materials and processes in a relaxed, non-competitive environment.
2013 and 2016 Kathleen K. Seefeldt Award Winner for Arts Excellence:
“outstanding arts organization, and arts education.”
…is a unique art studio, especially for children and teens. We offer fine arts and phonics/reading tutoring for children of all ages. After-school and Saturdays available!
Come and see what everyone is talking about!
Children and teens become inspired and fearlessly express themselves in a safe, non-competitive environment while learning traditional and modern techniques in art-making. Many class options are available, including my grown-up and me, intro to art processes, daytime, after-school & Saturday classes, open studio sessions, workshops, camps, parties, and more! Individual and group classes are available in our beautiful, spacious studio located in Lake Ridge, Virginia.
“If you can think it, you can create it!”
We offer a variety of fine arts classes for children of all ages, art parties, phonics and more. Each lesson and assignment is carefully and thoughtfully prepared to holistically address several skill sets; keeping as a top priority the essential need for children to have many opportunities to question, think, brainstorm ideas, and make art through the creative process.
The role of the teacher is to facilitate and interact with the child while he or she is learning through creating. This is the place where children and teens are able to stretch their imaginations, build special relationships, and take as long as they need to focus on and finish an artwork without feeling rushed. Unlike other art programs which rely on copying, tracing, and filling in outlines to produce predictable results, our emphasis is on the process rather than a product in order to help children develop into independent and creative human beings.

“My kids love Edgemoor Art Studio, Inc. We have participated in camps and Open Studio days. Every time my kids have had positive experiences, have learned new techniques, and are always begging to go back again!!”- Robyn O.
“This place is amazing !! I left my kids age 3,5,7 and was totally comfortable with their safety as well as knowing they would have fun! The ratio of adult to a child was spot and my kids were completely comfortable there. They brought home some FANTASTIC art also! We will be going back for more open studio sessions for sure!”– Mary H.
“We simply adore Edgemoor! My daughter Scarlett just had her 11th birthday party Jungle themed and it was amazing! They spent so much time putting such personal touches to get everything my daughter asked for right down to the canvas painting. They allowed the girls to have creative expression themselves but offered great advice when needed!”– Tonia P.
“Edgemoor is the place for creative and artistic kids to be themselves. This place is a beautiful, inspiring environment where kids can be expressive and grow their talents in a way that accentuates their uniqueness. This place has become a haven for my daughter where she can commune with other artists and do her own thing.”– Sandra O.
