About Our Director

Little Artists was established in October, 2000 by director, owner and head teacher Steve Symington.  Steve received his bachelor’s degree in December, 1998 from Azusa Pacific University, in Azusa, CA.  While attending Azusa Pacific, he majored in Liberal Studies with an art concentration as well as playing football for the Cougars for 3 years.   He has worked with children since 1990 and has been teaching art since 1998.  Steve and family (above), have worked very hard to open the 5 Little Artists locations that serve various areas of San Diego county in drawing, painting and ceramics for ages 4-18.

Thoughts from our director:  “Over the years, our teaching family has grown and I have seen, first hand, the benefits of art classes for my very own kids.  We are very fortunate to have such a great staff and such talented teachers.  We strive to put highly qualified teachers in the classroom to assure the very best education for our students.
