ADULT ART WORKSHOPS @ THE STUDIO

Leave the mess with us and make a masterpiece at our Studio!

Kids aren’t the only ones who benefit from creating art! As is seen in the popularity of such books as the Johanna Basford’s adult coloring books, many adults crave an artistic experience separate from their everyday lives.  Students of all ages and artistic levels come to Private Picassos for a unique experience tailored to them.  Whether you’re looking to get back into watercolor painting or haven’t picked up a paint brush in twenty years, we’re here to guide you.  And in case you missed it, looking at art might keep you in better health, according to a study published in the journal Emotion. Just another reason to sign up for one of our Art Classes!

Learn new techniques with our trained instructors and explore art materials on your own. Create your own masterpiece without the restrictions of "copying" the teacher. All workshops are BYOB to get the creative juices flowing! Students will also get 10% off any purchases in our Shop that they make that night.
