We invite both men and women to join us for an evening of creative fun . . . Experimenting with a wide variety of art media, while socially interact with others around you. We even supply refreshments to make the evening more enjoyable. GREAT for Girls Night Out or Date Night!

We begin by teaching you about the art medium we are featuring and encourage you to have fun learning more about the creative process. In the end our participants are amazed at what they have accomplished.
