Open Studio & Kids Art Classes with Yosemite Conservancy

Create Yosemite-inspired art on your own time!

All indoor activities at Happy Isles Art and Nature Center are cancelled, including Open Studio, as a safety precaution during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. At this time, we anticipate that this policy will remain in place through the 2021 season. Fear not, families — there are still plenty of ways to make park-inspired art in Yosemite and at home!

  • Join an Outdoor Class:  We’re thrilled to resume offering daily art classes and multi-day art retreats in 2021. Check out the full 2021 Art Schedule, and be sure to register in advance to save your (socially distant) spot.
  • Arrange a Private Class:  From March – October 2021, we’ll be offering custom art classes in the park for small groups. 
  • Make Your Own Nature-Inspired Art:  Check out our art kits (for home delivery or to pick up in the park) and read our Park Art, From Anywhere blog post for painting tutorials, kid-friendly crafts, and Yosemite-themed coloring pages. 

We look forward to welcoming visitors back to Happy Isles for our full line-up of Open Studio sessions, kids’ classes and indoor art workshops as soon as it is safe to do so. And in the meantime, we hope you’ll embrace opportunities to connect with nature through art, whether you’re in the park or at home. Be sure to tag us (@yosemiteconservancy) in photos of your Yosemite- and nature-inspired art creations on social media, using #HappyIslesArt!

COVID-19: We have implemented special safety measures to keep participants and instructors safe during the ongoing pandemic. For example, participants will hike single-file and keep moving to avoid crowding the trail, and instructors will stop to offer interpretation only when there is ample space to stay at least six feet apart. Please review our COVID-19 procedures for details.
