Frequently Ask Questions

Why is this course more expensive than other art classes I've seen?

I've spent years in my own practice discovering that that materials do influence product. We provide artist-grade materials, and you will have multiple instruments, envelopes, cards, and more as you set out to learn.

Do I need to bring a friend?

No! The best part about these workshops is that most of us walk in as strangers and leave as friends. It's so much fun to watch as well as be apart of. It's also ok if you're on the shy-side, we have a lot of work to get done in just a little amount of time!

Am I too old to learn? How about too young?

These courses are for all ages, we have a great time and we are also pretty tame. We will drink coffee, eat delicious pastries and snacks, and enjoy learning-- I'd say that's something all ages can share in!
