Information About Our Art Classes

Our art classes are like private lessons in a group setting. The teacher walks around the room and helps you master new techniques and complete your project. It's a fun and safe way to socialize, create and improve your skills in becoming an artist. We offer very fair rates and have over 10 teachers with all different styles to ensure your teacher is the right fit for you. 

We sign students up monthly. A typical month is $139.61 (including tax) and that gets you, four 3-hour classes. Once a week you'll come with a project of your choosing to work on. The teacher will make their way around the room to show you new skills and give advice on where to go next with your painting or project.

There are 4-12 students in a classroom (depending on the size of the studio). We have tables, easels, chairs to use although supplies are not included. All students get a 10% discount on supplies if they wish to purchase from our retail side.

If you are a new student and are unsure what to bring for class, no worries! The teachers or staff can help you pick out supplies and even a project to work on the first day. Beginners are welcome in almost any class.

There are snack machines, pop machines and a coffee area with seating in case you need a break or are taking multiple classes. We also supply drying racks for your projects if you wish to leave them for the next class.

What to expect.

When you arrive:

Ask a staff member at the front what class room your teacher is in. They will guide you to the room and get you settled at your station.

Seating:

Some students have select setting in the classroom so it is best to ask the teacher or a staff member where to be seated.

Early arrival:

If you arrive early the teacher will most likely be in intermission between classes and will welcome you when the class starts.

Your first class:

It's always strange and exciting starting a first class but rest assured your experience will be great. If you are a beginner you'll find it takes a few classes to get the hang of painting and creating. If you have some skills in art you'll  find yourself learning new techniques and skills right away.
