What are your studio hours? We are open Tuesday - Friday from 1 pm - 5 pm and Saturday by appointments. We are open Tuesday - Saturday for nightly classes from 7 pm to 9:30 pm.
I have no artistic talent what-so-ever, is this something I should do? Yes, no talent is required for our classes. You will be amazed at what you can do.

Can I suggest a painting I have in mind? You can make suggestions of future painting you would like to see on the calendar. If your private party wants to paint a particular painting, object, logo, etc, I will do everything I can to provide a painting that will be in the skill level of the guest.
The painting I want to paint is not on a night I can attend, is there any way to change the calendar? Because our calendar is up for many to choose and plan from, we can’t change it except for private parties. However, let us know what painting you want and what night and we can schedule it for the next available month’s calendar on the night you want.
I like a painting from last week, but it is not on the calendar again. Will it come up again next month? We schedule our painting to meet your needs. If you want a painting to repost, just let us know which one and we will repost it the next month.
I drove by your shop but didn’t see any available parking on the street, is there anywhere else to park? Yes, behind the buildings is a big parking lot. It is a short walk around to the front side of buildings. You can enter this parking lot on Main Street (Next to big Gazebo) or from Clebourne St. (turn into the Clebourne Office Building entrance.) Many people park across the street at the Vet's Office on the corner.
