​Artventure Instructors are artists who are as unique as our students. These are a group of people who have dedicated their lives and studies to the development of their art. We pride ourselves in hiring artists who love to share what they know and know how to make learning fun.

Miss Carley

Owner, Creative Director, Lead Instructor

I am the owner and creative director, and my goal is to deliver the highest quality art instruction while creating magical experiences and memories!

Ever since I was a child, art has been my passion. I am privileged to dedicate my life to sharing my talent and love for art with others.

​I followed that passion through college, earning a BFA in Entertainment Art, Animation, and Illustration from Cal State Fullerton; and worked in Burbank doing pre-production and storyboard art for animated features. I come from a family of artists and have always been happiest when creating, and in 2004 I made the leap to full-time art instruction.
