Adult Technique Classes

Enjoy the little things in life!

Art Beat: BYOB Workshops

Oil Painting, Drawing, and Pottery

It doesn't matter your level of experience, we promise if you come to art class here you will have a fun time!

We offer adult technique classes like oil painting, drawing, and pottery. Most of these are 4-6 week sessions.

Our Art Beat: BYOB Workshops are 2-3 hour workshops. Our instructors will guide you through a step by step artsy process mostly using acrylics on canvas to create a finished masterpiece that you get to take home! We like to throw other fun projects into this mix from string art to jewelry making. Again, no experience required, just bring your creativity and any snacks/beverages you'd like.

Registration is on a first come, first serve basis. Your space will not be confirmed until both your registration and payment have been received!
