Welcoming students of skills and ages, Happymess Art Studio promotes an environment of open exploration and creativity as adults and children spread color over canvas. Instructors lull the nascent artist out of participants through a diverse collection of classes such as bookbinding, screen printing, and color theory. Students study how to construct realistic portraits in dry media or create a custom felt pillow cover using an old sweater, some roving, and the tears of the Michelin Man. Happymess also leads classes about visual journaling as well offering pointers on self-promoting and marketing one’s artwork. Materials will be included with all classes unless otherwise noted on the extensive calendar of classes.
Happymess Art Studio
Though they come from different walks of life, the instructors at Happymess Art Studio find common ground in their passion for artistic expression. They harness their diversity and devotion in the studio, which offers an eclectic assortment of art classes week after week. Happymess is not just painting—its schedule features watercolor classes, drawing classes, and a "Paint Like" series, where you can absorb the ideas of iconic artists by studying their stylistic approaches and grocery receipts.
Outside the studio, the Happymess instructors work their magic in the community teaching ARTreach Activities through partnerships with local art groups, schools, and organizations.
