Get Your Kids OFF THE SCREENS And Expand The CREATIVE Problem-Solving Center In Their Brains - ALL WHILE HAVING LOADS OF FUN!!!

Art Camps were a huge success at our NEW ART STUDIO on East Brainerd Road! We have TONS of NEW FUN EVENTS coming this fall - even some fun for the adults!

Due to the popularity of our Christmas Workshops and many requests, we are opening "KIDS NIGHT OUT" the first and third Friday of each month at the studio. This begins in September! Let your kids have fun and create one awesome art project, one groovy craft and be engaged in other creative fun - plus movies, games & pizza. All while you go out and have some adult fun. Sign up early as the studio can only accommodate 20 young artists at a time.

Our TEENS had a blast this summer too and were hoping for a night just for them and their friends. SO.... we will start with TEEN NIGHT the second Saturday of each month. This will be an open studio time where the teens can come in with an idea they want to try with the guidance of our amazing adult artists. Of course, we will also have a prepared project that is sure to please too. Sometimes the creative fountain is not overflowing and needs a gentle nudge in a certain direction. When working with older students, I see my role as more of a specialized art coach working to guide and encourage the student. Although I am there to teach needed skills and show by example to grasp those advanced more ideas. All skill levels are welcome as everyone will be working on various projects. During all this creativity, we will have music, snacks & fun too. So grab your squad or girlfriends and come on out for an evening of serious fun!

ADULTS - Coming soon we will open up the schedule for Adult Craft Nights, Painting Parties AND MY PERSONAL FAVORITE: Glass Collage Workshops/Parties!!!
