Spanish Village Art Center
Art is a process and a product at this popular tourist attraction. Built for the 1935 Exposition, this cluster of Spanish-style cottages in San Diego's historic Balboa Park houses the on-going works of local artists and artisans of all descriptions. Watch sculptures, painters, craftsmen, jewelers and photographers create their art on a rotating basis. All artwork is for sale upon completion. Best of all, admission to the facility is free.
Just next to the San Diego Zoo (to the right of the zoo entrance) is a charming little village setting for artists. If you like local artists of different classes and styles, from glass to pottery, from oils to jewelry, you need to visit the Spanish Village. I collect glass. Two great glass places here. San Diego Gem and Mineral scociety is also there. Kids loved it!
Walking around in this brightly-colored artists' haven reminds one of traveling through Munchkin Land! Through windows in little studios one can see myriad forms taking shape. Potters, glass blowers, jewelry makers, painters & other crafters all make their home here. Art is for sale all over the place! A really cool experience, and a great place to find gift items (or things for yourself!).
A whole village of art shops with jewelry, enamels, pottery, glass, sculpture and much more. Don't miss this great amalgam of local artists. Since the city supports and each studio/shop is a coop of artists working in that medium, pieces are excellent, unique and very reasonably priced. Reserve at least 3 hours if you are an art lover.
