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.

At Art in Mind we realize how important it is for homeschool parents to give their kids the best possible education they can. Integral to an excellent educational program is the inclusion of fine arts, which has been proven to be essential in so many ways. The benefits include enhancing motor skills, fostering creativity, learning about history, recognizing cultural differences, and so much more. An education rich in art education encourages individuality, creative thinking, and the appreciation of the differences among others, which will impact one’s future. We hope that you will choose our Homeschool Art Program to supplement the outstanding education you are providing your children.
Our Homeschool Art program is now accommodating all ages! Sessions include new and innovative projects, scheduled time for high/middle school, elementary, & preschool ages. Each series typically consists of 3 classes. Please refer to our Homeschool Art page to get the details!
