Our Classes and Events

Tea Time for Mom and Make a Gift for Dad!

To celebrate Mother’s Day, we are holding tea parties. Take this step back in time and enjoy this old Southern tradition; you may even sip your tea on the veranda if you choose. It will be good for your soul to take this time and renew your spirit as you sip your beverage and sample the selection of tea time foods while enjoying the art at the art center. Finger foods like gourmet chicken salad, smoked salmon, cucumber sandwiches, assorted cheeses, fruits and nuts, scones, petit fours etc.

And, your little one can make a special gift for Dad. Sign up for Saturday June 15 – just in time for Father’s Day – to have your youngest make a special gift for his special man.  Register for these events below.
