Meet Ferril

Hi! I'm Ferril, and welcome to Ferril's Pop-Ins. I am an artist and educator based in Ocean Beach, CA. I developed Ferril's Pop-Ins to make Art more accessible to the community that I have called home my whole life. Every Pop-In on the Pop-In Menu represents a skill that I have picked up, practiced and refined because of the joy that practicing and refinement has brought me. Working with children and making Art are what bring me joy. I created my own way to find this joy, and I hope that you will join me.

Welcome to Ferril's Pop-Ins.


"Learning to bake bread was a fun idea that turned into a regular practice. Baking bread takes intuition, time, and good old fashioned elbow grease."


Wood Burning

"Growing up we had a solid wood coffee table, that once my brother and I were old enough, became a surface to learn and practice wood burning. An odd skill I was able to take with me in education."

Fiber Arts

"In seventh grade, my best friend's mom taught me how to knit. When I was 25, my now mother-in-law taught me how to crochet. When I was 27 I taught myself how to cross stitch. Fiber Arts have taught me patience and persistence." 


"My Grandmother took me to my first play at San Diego Junior Theatre when I was around 2 or 3 years old. Since then, storytelling through performance has been a constant and defining aspect of my life."

Nail Art

"I was a life long nail biter until I met my husband in 2011. I picked up nail art as a way to redirect my old habit. Having art at my fingertips made a world of difference in my confidence and expression."
