Q&A with Raquel Hinojosa, Art Director
What is one of your signature services? How is it performed?
We offer quality art classes for children and adults and provide an array of original artwork created by local artists.
Sometimes it's all about the little things in life. What supplemental courtesies do you include with your main services to leave clients with a smile on their face?
Students attending art classes are allowed to come in 15 minutes early. We also encourage them to make up absent days.
If the gallery doesn't have the artwork you're looking for, we can connect you with the right artist.
What's one tip for first-time customers that will make them feel like regulars?
Parents of young children are welcomed to stay for a while as their children ease into the comfort of the art lesson.
Classes are small, which ensures that all students will receive plenty of individual attention.
Turn over a new leaf working out at Salsa Dance and Fitness in McAllen.

What services does your business offer and what makes your business stand out from the competition?
HIAS is a BYOB studio that offers a variety of art workshops for children & adults, taught by local artists & craftsmen. Our workshops promote stress relief, problem solving, & creative thinking, while also providing entertaining experiences that can be shared with friends, family, & the community.
Do you provide any materials? What should your students expect to bring?
Hands In Art Studio provides ALL tools and materials. We only ask our participants to come in with comfortable clothing that they would not mind getting a little dirty (for those who enjoy going a little off the canvas). We are a BYOB establishment, you bring the drinks & we provide the glasses!
What was the inspiration to start or run this business?
HIAS brings in local artists & craftsmen to teach workshops in the creative art field they specialize in which will help provide support & experience. We also strive to educate, promote, & entertain our local community about the art of craftsmanship by encouraging ‘Do-It-Yourself’ (DIY) workshops.
What do you love most about your job?
Hands In Art Studio is dedicated to bringing support and awareness to the many talented local artists and craftsmen, while also providing an entertaining educational experience for the local community who participate in our workshops. Participating in our workshop means supporting local artists.
