53 Marina Boulevard
Pittsburg, CA 94565


Hours vary depending on class schedule.

The Art Shack is a place where toddlers, teens, ‘tweens, and adults can explore their creativity. We facilitate classes, lectures, performances, and exhibits in an effort to enrich the lives of all citizens of Pittsburg! We’re talking all kinds of art – drawing, cake decorating, mural classes, and more!

The Art Shack is a part of the Pittsburg Arts & Community Foundation, and is home to almost all of the Foundation’s art-related projects and programs. We’re a little off the beaten path, but we love our location on Marina Boulevard by the water.

Our favorite thing about being in Old Town is its beauty. Here,
artists are able find inspiration everywhere they look, from the waters of the delta to the southwest hills, and everything in between. So much inspiration in fact, that many of our drawing and painting classes are actually moved outside. Our students love to paint the old yellow boat on Third Street & Marina Boulevard, sketch the shadows of the California Theater’s historic facade, and draw the statues scattered throughout downtown.

Photos coming soon!
