As Fall approaches classes are again being offered.

The studio offers several one time classes as well as the on-going Paint Club. You can read more about Paint Club on it's page. You are always welcome to bring snacks and beverages (adult too!) of your choice

The studio also offers private group classes and parties. Please see the Gallery page for just some of the possibilities! Call Dee for dates and prices

*** Please note!***

Teachers need to  order and sometimes prep  projects. All classes must be registered and paid for. You can do this during a previous class or by charge and call the number above. Cancellations  will be refunded if the studio is notified a week ahead. Less than a week but 24 hrs will allow a credit toward a future class. Less than 24 hours or  no shows will not be transferred since that space could have gone to another student. 

The  studio is very excited Eileen Carter will be joining us to again teach  baskets and also cake decorating!

 I have taken her basic cake decorating and learned so much as well as it being delicious. What a treat!
