A Chat with Art Shak
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition? Robin Donovan, the owner of Art Shak, was a pioneer in the sip and paint industry, opening her first studio in 2008. Despite having opened and sold two successful studios in Atlanta, she continues to be hands-on as [she was] from the beginning, teaching nearly every class with her unique hands-on approach.
What is the experience customers can expect? Most painters walk in the door a little nervous because they are doing something they have never done before. We strive to provide a comfortable and happy space where people can just let their guard down. We enhance the creative environment by encouraging individuality and great music, of course!
What was the inspiration to start or run this business? Believe it or not, a paintbrush and blank canvas that turns into a completed piece of art by someone who has never painted before can be life changing. A little magic happens at every class, and people leave just a little different than when they came in. I find it to be the most rewarding experience.
What do you love most about your job? Every single person that walks through the doors is special to me. They may walk in as strangers, but we bond over a plate of paint and they leave as friends. I love kids and nothing is better than kids' art. Their little minds are so uninhibited and creative. It makes my heart sing.
