Expressive Open Art Studio (For All Ages)

Leave your busy schedules and the stresses of the world at the door as you enter our peaceful studio atmosphere. No experience is necessary, and all ages are welcome! Canvas painting is a favorite at our studio. You can design something of your own, or we have a huge variety of paintings to pick from, and we can pre-sketch images on the canvas for you! Each month we feature 4 special paintings that can save you money if you choose to paint one of them. You may alternatively choose to paint your own creation on wood, slate, tile, or glass. We also have various art media for those who just want to work with paper, and a few crafty projects as well.

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 step-by-step instruction or judgment.* This will build confidence and will help one to express creatively.

We 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 if you wish.

$24 per 1 hour session ($12 finish up fee for second hour). Price includes an 11"x 14" canvas. Some supplies are extra.  Paint one of our monthly featured specials for $18 flat rate (11"x 14" canvas/1 hour of time). No preregistration is necessary - check calendar for Open Art hours, as sometimes we have birthday parties and other events. 

*Open Art Studio is not a fully instructed class, though we are here to guide you and to provide basic art instruction, samples, ideas, as well as various stencils/tracers to help ensure your success. Please keep in mind that you will be working independently as we come around the room to assist. 

**Watch the calendar for youth activities, special events, and the monthly Open Art Specials.

Homeschool Art Education

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.

Please refer to our Homeschool Art page to get the details!
