During classes, acrylic paints, brushes, 11"x14" canvas boards, easels, and snacks are all provided by the studio. Both professional artists, Kelly Hutchinson or Carol Fogelsong oversees the group and offers tips. Students can bring in any reference material of an image they'd like to paint, browse the studio's files for inspiration, or email a photo ahead of time that the artists will convert into a drawing to be replicated on the canvas. Pupils ages ten and up walk away with their completed artwork at the end of the class. All Groupon buyers also receive a $25 gift certificate than can be used toward a $100 minimum purchase on select items.

With fellow artist Carol Fogelsong, Kelly also leads art classes, teaching the fundamentals to students during intimate group sessions.
