We love working with kids & teens to teach food education and culinary skills. We focus on intuitive cooking, which means kids learn skills to empower them to cook and understand their own health in a new way. We believe that cooking has the potential to ignite a creative spark within a child and teach them how to connect to their unique life perspective.
We cook wholesome and multicultural recipes that expose kids to new flavors, develop motor skills, incorporate various cultures, and ultimately, celebrate our time together around the table.
Our curriculum is designed around the following skills and topics:
We partner with schools throughout the Bay Area to offer after-school and enrichment classes to kids from pre-K to high school. Our classes are usually between 45min-1hr long and focus on developing basic kitchen skills while having fun. Our team will bring all cooking equipment, tools, and ingredients on site to your school. We are adaptable and can work with many space constraints.
We collaborate with educators and classroom teachers to create tailored cooking classes within the school day that will bring to life STEM and health curriculum.
We love hosting school groups at our cooking studio in Ghirardelli Square. Field trips last between 2-3 hours and culminate with a family-style meal prepared by the kids. The experience can be customized by including a cooking competition, theme, focus on a STEM topic, and more. We welcome your creative ideas!
We strive to take each school’s unique budget and needs into account when pricing our school programs. There is a start-up cost for materials and a small activity fee at the start of sessions to cover the cost of groceries.
As Culinary Artistas expands, we seek more opportunities to make food education accessible to our local communities. Artistas Everywhere uses corporate donations to fund after-school culinary programs at Bay Area schools and nonprofits. Are you part of a school or nonprofit that would benefit from Artistas Everywhere?
