What else do we offer?
Express Yourself!

“Express Yourself” in words by using cut out words from magazines on canvas and painting colors that express those feelings. Use a brush, or a palette knife, or even finger paint if you like. Or, bring a photo you took on your cell phone. Add some texture with modeling paste. It’s your time to explore and create. No matter what your artistic level happens to be from total beginner to more advance, you’ll find a fun and relaxed atmosphere. Bring your friends or make new ones.
