Since 1995, the friendly and artistic team members at The Painting Workshop have spiked patrons’ creative juices with quality materials, inspirational subject matter, and a generous splash of encouragement. Enroll one or two pre-adolescent postmodernists (ages 5–10) in the Painting on Canvas workshop, then enjoy some wasabi peas and quiet as the youngsters make paint fly based on their imaginations or a studio-provided still life, an ideal tool for those looking to hone their color-matching and snack-resisting abilities. The workshop also welcomes groups of adults. The Art & Pizza workshop begins with projects spanning the realms of crafts, painting, and sculpting dough into fully functional grandfather clocks. Next, pizza presents itself to kids, who can stare cross-eyed at the sauce palettes in hopes of finding hidden pepperoni messages. The Painting Workshop provides all materials and requires no fine- or coarse-arts prerequisites for enrollment. Check the schedule for an idea of upcoming class times.
