Leave your busy schedules and the stresses of the world at the door as you enter our peaceful studio atmosphere. There is something to do for everyone, regardless of age, ability, or experience. Guidance, ideas, and a huge assortment of media is available to you as you go through our three steps:
1. Choose Your Surface:
Paper, canvas, glass, wood, clay, metal, beads, tiles, etc.
2. Choose Your Medium:
Acrylic, watercolor, enamels, pastel, marker, charcoal, etc.
3. Express Yourself By Creating a Personal Masterpiece!
No experience is necessary and all ages are welcome. You will receive guidance to inspire ideas and to enhance your unique project, but your project is your own creation. During Open Studio at Art in Mind, we want artists to learn to feel confident in using their own imagination and their creative ability without specific instruction and judgment. This will build confidence and will help one to express creatively. We also understand that a project is never finished until you feel that it is; that is why our open studio time is purchased in sessions, so you can leave your work and come back to finish it at another time.
$15 per 1 hour session. *Some supplies are extra. No preregistration is necessary - check calendar for Open Art hours, as sometimes we have birthday parties and other events.
**Watch the calendar for youth activities and special events on Saturday mornings.
About 2-3 times a month we offer an instructive paint/art class for all ages at night or on Saturday morning at a reduced rate. This is a great way to spend quality time with your kids. Come to our studio and enjoy some family time, creatively!
