Or, perhaps, you might like to take an art class?

Is it time in your life to explore something different?
Perhaps there is a part of you that is yearning for expression?
Maybe you are looking for a way to create some space, some perspective for a change or loss in your life?
Do something you’ve never done before?

Impressionist Oil Painting. Yes!

Impressionist Oil Painting. Yes!
The classes are designed for beginners ("I can’t even do a stick figure”) and artists ("my stuff is boring”) looking for more color in their work.

The classes are engaging, fun, and full of exploration and experimentation. You cannot fail.

Give this gift to yourself or someone else for Christmas. Start the new year off with a new perspective on life!
