Heart of Orléans BIA

Behind the Business – ACE Arte Studio

ACE Arte Studio is located in unit 1 at 2095 St-Joseph Boulevard in the Heart of Orléans BIA. Owner, Steffi Acevedo opened her new bright and creative space in May of 2022. It was Steffi’s love of sharing visual arts, creative expression and her hope of fostering a sense of community that led her to opening her own business in Orléans. 

ACE is a clean, fun and inclusive space where art classes and workshops are offered to both kids and adults. The studio offers small class sizes for one-on-one connections, high-quality materials, and a variety of mediums in a sunny and bright studio. 

If your young family member is interested in the arts, they will definitely want to check out the innovative summer camps being offered this year at ACE. They include fun and exciting themes such as “Under the Sea and Frosty Wonderland” and “Comics and Superheroes!” There is definitely something for everyone! 

Despite being open for only a few months, Steffi has had quite the impression on the Orléans community. Parents have been extremely pleased hosting kids’ birthday parties at ACE and the little ones are beaming with pride as they bring home their creations!

In addition to classes, events, and camps, the studio provides specialized private and group art sessions that focus on the creative process, facilitating self-exploration and promoting the therapeutic effects of creating.

Local businesses are realizing that the studio exhibits the perfect setting for a team activity. Work colleagues who have recently gotten together for a workshop found the atmosphere very calming and therapeutic. It is the perfect setting to alleviate some of the stress that we all encounter in our workplaces at one time or another.

You can even talk to Steffi about hosting a family workshop! Wouldn’t that make for a fun family reunion?!

Unsurprisingly, Steffi has received many praises from the community to date. Veronica Alicia highly recommends ACE Arte Studio and says, “Had my very first pottery class last week with a few friends and it was SO MUCH FUN! Steffi from ACE Arte studio has crafted the loveliest space to work in, and provided us with hands-on instructions and lots of options to create our very own planters. The atmosphere was so calm and bright, and we had plenty of time to work at our own pace to create our masterpieces! Thank you Steffi and Ace Arte for having us!”

When asked where she saw herself in 5 years, Steffi said “I hope to grow the creative community in Orléans and Ottawa and offer more programs for everyone!” We think she is well on her way to doing just that!
