In our classes we try to avoid every person walking away with identical finished projects. Instead it is our goal to teach you an artistic skill and guide you through making your own artistic decisions. We team up with local wineries, distilleries, and breweries to give you an educational experience that engages all of the senses. Our classes range in topic; we are always exploring different mediums and techniques. Our classes range from drawing to painting, collage, matte transfer techniques, and more.
Check out our calendar to find out about current class offerings. If you have an idea of something you would like to see, and perhaps a group of friends also keen, feel free to reach out and we will schedule a class just for you!
