Class info




Art Class…wow, that sounds kind of serious.  And a little intimidating…..What are our classes about?  Yes, they are about making something awesome & learning new skills…but really they are about the PROCESS of doing art together.  Sure it sounds cliche, but it’s true –  memories happen, art happens, friendships happen, relaxing happens, a new perspective happens, laughter happens – the EXPERIENCE of art happens, and it is a beautiful thing!  Our classes are fun & individual & definitely not cookie cutter!  We are not a franchise – each class is planned with the expectation of an individual, joyful art experience.  At one of our summer art camps, one of the girls stopped painting & spontaneously exclaimed, “This is the best day EVER!” – made my day!  We hope you will join us!  We have named our new location “Spark” because it is where we help you find and kindle YOUR creative spark!  Stop by and see our new beautiful location!  Our open house is Friday night November 17th, drop in hours 4-8 pm, join us for refreshments & a free painting project!
