Adult Technique Classes to Art Beat: BYOB Workshops

Enjoy the little things in life!

It doesn't matter your level of experience, we promise if you come to art class here you will have a fun time!

We offer adult technique classes like oil painting, drawing, and pottery. Most of these are 4-6 week sessions.

Our Art Beat: BYOB Workshops are 2-3 hour workshops. Our instructors will guide you through a step by step artsy process mostly using acrylics on canvas to create a finished masterpiece that you get to take home! We like to throw other fun projects into this mix from string art to jewelry making. Again, no experience required, just bring your creativity and any snacks/beverages you'd like.
