Adult Art Workshops
Our Adult Creative Arts Workshops are for ages 13 and are offered a couple times a month.

Our workshops are always changing and depending on the season you can find art classes like cake decorating, glass etching, painting, knitting, paper crafts, mosaics and decoupage to name a few! These workshops provide a great opportunity to visit the studio for an afternoon, learn new skills, have fun, come with friends or meet new ones and best of all leave with a new piece of art!
