Art Is For Everyone!

Admiring creativity, or learning to be creative yourself, is not limited to the wealthy, the gifted, or the educated. Learning to actually see what is beautiful or thought-provoking can be cultivated. Let us bring out the artist in you! 

An Idea is Born

Taking our love of painting to our church, we offered lessons as a reasonable alternative to commercial classes. These twice a month sessions were a big success. In addition, we began selling paintings and completing commissions, which encouraged us to expand our idea -- passing on our love for creativity to others at a reasonable price.
