Studio ACE is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization dedicated to enriching lives through Arts, Community, and Education. Studio ACE was founded in 2018 by Executive Director Julia Fister who worked for many years in nonprofit arts organizations. Witnessing firsthand what the power of arts education can do for people of all ages, Julia made it her personal mission to find a way to provide affordable and accessible arts education opportunities for the North San Diego County community, and Studio ACE was born. What began as a dream is now a flourishing reality, with Studio ACE providing an array of arts education offerings through classes in their physical studio space, programs with Oceanside Unified School District, and robust partnerships with other community organizations. Though Studio ACE is not yet able to reopen to the public, that does not stop them from bringing creativity to your home this holiday season.
