Our Classes

Our Instructors

Our primary mission is to bring art to the community.  One way we do this is to offer our services and talent and by giving you the opportunity to open and explore your creative chi.  Holding a brush in hand is not about making a masterpiece; it is about exploring your inner heart and soul in a way that is both enjoyable and exciting.  Our classes are taught by experts in their field who enjoy teaching and watching students take the artful journey and be surprised at what they can do.  We encourage you to take the journey, have fun and see where it takes you.
