It’s amazing how taking a brush to paper can calm the soul. There’s something about the exercise of doing a creative act that is both soothing and healing. Experience that magic for yourself (and have a ball doing it!) in any of the classes offered at The Art Cottage. Whether you want to master oil painting, explore watercolor, shake things up with mixed media, or take your straight line for a curve in a drawing class, you’ll find ample options.

Come on your own or gather a group. Paint nights are fun to do with your girls, they make a fab date night, and they can take family time up several notches. No matter who your paint partners are, you’ll find paint nights are about more than just making great art, they’re about making treasured memories!
