CREATING & INSPIRING

Beyond teaching art techniques and supplying craft materials, we offer safe creative space for individuals to learn and express themselves.

Art for the Journey was born in a studio: people simply enjoying the camaraderie, creative energy, and the respite it provided. We believe everyone benefits from making art, which is why we provide quality art classes for anyone seeking to try something new, improve their skills, or perhaps find some therapy of their own. All instructors are professional artists, experts in their media and deeply vested in the personal and artistic success of their students, regardless their level.

Below are current classes and workshops. Scroll down for details and check back for updates!
