    Guided Art Classes
    No problem! You don't need any art experience to have a blast painting or creating in other media! In fact that's what this is all about! You will be guided step by step in one of our classes and you'll be amazed with the finished piece of art that YOU create to take home! And, most importantly, not only will you have a great time, we hope you'll be inspired to continue exploring your creativity!
    Register for a scheduled event by choosing the event you would like to attend from the Event Calendar, click on it and complete the registration form you are directed to. Purchase your event ticket online using a debit card or credit card using our secure Authorize.net site. Be sure to arrive at least 15-30 minutes before the class start time to order any refreshments you may like and choose your seat.

    No, We will be supplying all of the painting materials and aprons, and there will be wonderful food and drinks available for individual purchase. All you have to do is come ready to have fun!!
    Although we are using water based acrylics, unfortunately it does not easily come out of clothing once it dries! I will provide an apron for you, but wear something you wouldn't mind getting paint on in the unlikely event that should happen! I recommend sleeves above the elbows as the wrist and forearm are the most likely to hit wet paint!

    It will feel dry to the touch after about 1/2 hour, but will continue to dry thoroughly for the next several days. After it's dry to the touch, you can carefully handle it by its edges and transport it face up in your car.
