Covered Archway

Our Vision

We have space and lots of it!

Way Art Yonder Studio is located on nearly 5 acres in semi-rural Jamul. We're 25 minutes away from downtown San Diego but feel a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

The Studio can accommodate 16+ comfortably and the outdoor spaces can be configured to hold many more.

Primarily focused on mixed media, art journaling and the book arts, the Studio is actively seeking other artistic mediums to explore and share with artists. Come experience the inspiration and hospitality of Way Art Yonder!

Have an idea for a class or you'd like to teach? Let us know!

Meet the Team

Jana Freeman & Marcel

Artist and Founder of Way Art Yonder Studio

and the Beloved Studio Dog

Jana spent her professional career working in various support roles to high profile architects and in managing their firms. She is used to working with creatives, and as an artist herself, she brings a unique left-brain/right-brain sensibility to planning, organizing and taking part in the workshops and events held at Way Art Yonder Studio.

Self described: a wife, a mother, a mixed-media artist, wine goddess extraordinaire, and the emotional support human to one lucky Labrador. Follow Jana's artist profile on Instagram

Official Studio Greeter, Marcel, is an extremely mellow Labrador Retriever. He was rescued by the Labrador Rescuers of San Diego from a high kill shelter in San Bernadino and was adopted in 2013 by the Freeman family.

Jana is Marcel's emotional support human and he spends the majority of his time napping at her feet and keeping track of her every move. Much to his chagrin, Marcel Marcello Cello will not attend class, if there are allergy issues or other known issues with dogs. Please let his human know at time of registration, otherwise plan on falling in love with the official Way Art Yonder Studio Dog!
