About A Chat with The Tornado Factory
What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
Attending an ART-ertainment event at The Tornado Factory is a fun, interactive experience for people of all skill levels. We operate out of a real, working artist’s studio and have well-trained instructors – we think this is one of the reasons we’re different, our artists have advanced Fine Art degrees and can help you out technically if get stuck or make a big goof – most other places the teachers don’t have that ability. Our folks are also fun and goofy and will make this a great experience. Another great aspect is LOCATION-- we are just a few blocks from cute and historic Downtown Anoka, so after you come paint and munch donuts with us, you can go shop for cute clothes or antiques or eat ice cream or just stroll along the river for the afternoon!
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
We felt like we could offer a better experience to people than what is out there today --- our artists are more technically proficient and can help you with your painting more to make sure you leave feeling good about the whole experience and the end product. We also LOVE art of many different forms, so we have quickly expanded the events into a lot of different types of art –from traditional painting, to creating coasters with alcohol inks, to DIY pallet wall art… they are all so fun!
What do you love most about your job?
We love seeing our customers relax and start to tap into their most creative, inspired selves when they are here. We all spend so much time in front of computer screens, on our phones… it’s a different experience when you can turn off the electronics and start creating something with your own two hands. You tap into a different part of your mind and soul! And, we love that no matter what skill level someone comes in with, they can get that creative AND social experience to fill up your soul – no experience required.
What is the best reaction you've ever gotten from a customer?
One of our customers brought her entire family back the very next weekend because she had such a fun time! That was pretty cool.
