The Story of Yucandu
Yucandu (pronounced yū-‘ken-dū) Art Studio was founded in 2003 upon the idea that everyone is creative. The name says it all: it’s art you can do.
Everyone, from ages 5 to 95, can discover their inner artist at Yucandu Art Studio. Regardless of skill level or creative ability, here you can explore your creativity while using the highest quality, artist-grade materials in an inspirational setting. We’ll teach you everything you need to know so you can walk out of our studio having created your own one-of-a-kind masterpiece.
When you visit our studio in Webster Groves, we hope you’ll be inspired by the unlimited creative possibilities that await you. We personally choose every item in our store—from the jars filled with colorful beads and buttons, to the endless array of high-quality paints, paper, and unique vintage items—that are waiting for your artistic hand to mold them into original works of art.
So unleash your creative potential with us. Come alone. Bring a friend (or two…or three!). Bring your whole family. Join us for one of our many events, workshops, and summer camps or schedule a party of your own. Our warm and friendly staff of creatives is ready to help you untap the artist we know is living within.
Celebrating 20 Years of Creativity!
Yucandu Art Studio is celebrating 20 years with more art than ever before. Since 2003, Yucandu has been providing art experiences for kids & adults like no other.
We invite you to visit us at Yucandu as we celebrate our 20th anniversary this year with even more workshops, camps, open-studio projects, events, giveaways and more.
What once began as a backyard summer camp many years ago, grew into 2800 square feet of inspirational & creative energy that one feels the moment they step into the studio.
For 20 years, Yucandu has been a place where kids & adults have relaxed, created, and played with artist-quality materials, and (here’s the best part…) left the mess behind. Here’s to 20 more!
