We’re not your typical DIY art studio. At Hearts for the Arts we provide unique classes that keep up with the newest art and design trends. We go beyond the canvas and teach projects that use a variety of mediums and techniques. Using simple step-by-step instructions, people of all ages and abilities can come learn, create and explore their inner artist - no experience is necessary. With our fun and relaxing environment, you’ll be amazed at what you create. Join us, and leave with a piece you’ll be proud to display in your home!
