We offer 4 special paintings each month for just $22 each (1 hour session). On Thursdays seniors paint any painting for $22 (11″ x 14″ canvas). We also have various art media for those who just want to work with paper, and we have a few crafty projects as well.

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.

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!
