Here's What They're Saying About Art Fix Classes
“Here is a question you simply must ask yourself: When is the last time you had so much genuine FUN that you completely lost track of time? It happens to me at Createful Studio every single time I show up.”
— Daniela Johnson-Rongstad
“I feel so lucky that I can end each work week with Denise’s Art Fix class. Denise is imaginative and inspiring and plans fun, thoughtful projects to teach new techniques and awaken my self expression. The studio is comfortable and my classmates are super enjoyable; all I need to do is show up and the magic begins!”
— Jane Chamberlain
“When I first signed up I had never done anything like this before. I didn’t know what mixed media was, nor art journaling...I had never used acrylic paints, pastels, gesso or any other types of mediums. The last time I did any forms of art was back in grade school and that was MANY moons ago! It’s been over a year now and I am thrilled at all that I am learning and I am having so much fun! I’m getting in touch with my artsy side and I’m finding parts of myself that never knew existed.I can turn down the inner critic more effectively these days and I apply paint and make marks with more courage. Denise is so relaxed, fun & talented and such a beautiful person! Thanks Denise for your hard work in pulling this great studio together! ”
— Tracy Brusman
“I recommend Createful Studio to anyone who wants to explore their creativity. For anyone who remotely thinks they have something to express, something to say, Createful Studio is THE place to be!”
