*Length of alone time varies from child to child and though we cannot guarantee it, it's a nice thought.
We have been dreaming of adding yoga to our creative wellness (art) program for some time now! Finally, yoga classes are coming to Shades of Orange! Perfect for kids 2 and up!
Shades is all about encouraging creativity and building an active mind in children. Yoga is a fantastic complement to the concentration and motor skills that art provides. With yoga for kids, you'll see an improvement in strength, flexibility, emotional regulation, anxiety, mindfulness, and body awareness.
Our programs, designed by a 200HR certified yoga instructor, will bring you affordable weekly in-studio classes, tailored to age and perfect for all ability levels. We'll start with a game to get the wiggles out, jump into a fun, themed flow, toss in a mini-meditation and finish with a craft or painting project!
If you're in search of something fun and creative that will get your kids out of the house and expanding their minds, look no further! Check out the events we have happening at Shades of Orange!

Shades of Orange has been active in the community for 14 years and counting! We LOVE when our studio kids represent us outside of the studio. Our super-soft collection of individually printed tees, tanks, and hoodies are perfect for everything from art camp and yoga class to lounging on the couch!
Adding apparel to our online presence is one of the best ideas we've ever had. From adorable lounge sets to t-shirts, we've got everything kids need to stay comfy, whether they're taking an oil painting class in-studio or practicing a little mindfulness at home!
Mugs, water bottles, tote bags, and more! Enjoy your morning cup of coffee or tea in one of our Shades mugs, or take us everywhere with our collection of water bottles!
Welcome to Shades of Orange. We believe in the creativity that lives within every kid, and we want them to be able to access it at any time, even from the comfort of their own home. From local in-studio classes (virtual art classes for kids coming soon!) to preschool art boxes and complete birthday party kits, we're bringing all things art straight to your family.
Our art kits for kids are revolutionary, comprehensive, easy to follow, and we've tailored them to fit all age ranges. After thoroughly researching the market, we discovered that the quality and project designs for craft kits for kids were seriously lacking. We've been in the business of creating art projects for kids ages 2-12 for thirteen years, and we're thrilled to be able to put that knowledge and creativity into each and every kids art box that we pack up and ship out.
Shades of Orange is dedicated to supporting the fine arts in a creative, safe, learning environment that will encourage imaginative thinking as well as individual interests and skills; always with a sense of fun and wonder for children and adults.
My name is Patti Stevens, I have always had a great love for the arts and design, and I own Shades of Orange Art Studio for Kids. We are the premier art studio in the Central New York area, and I am beyond excited to expand by offering our services nationwide through the development of our revolutionary art kits for kids and birthday party boxes.
For twenty years, I worked in the retail industry but always on the creative end. I have done visuals and store interiors for multi million dollar retail chains. I have staged events for the stores and of course always with impeccable customer service skills.
Fourteen years ago I found that it was time to do what I truly love, and Shades of Orange was born. An art studio lets everyone find their creative self. I feel strongly that this is very important to children, especially those who do not get enough of it in school and those who just love to do it.
There is no right or wrong in creating. Once the technique and mediums are introduced to the student, the sky is the limit! Most of all it's a lot of fun to discover creativity at any age!
I am beyond happy that you're here, and look forward to sharing this journey with you!
