February Compendium

This is our monthly e-newsletter where I catch you up on what we’re doing at Createful Studio—and what's coming up next.

 A busy month of  mixed media mayhem

Art Fix: Not your ordinary Art class

We don't have expectations...judgements...or any prerequisites.  We're all in this creative space together.

We create together mostly because it's fun. (We dare you to spread, spatter, rub, smear, and/or pounce all the art supplies with a frown on your face!)

We create also because of the creative magic. The surprises, the insights, the aha moments.

The times we see just what our creatives selves really can do. 

We create together because over time friendships take hold and our own sense of self expands.

And life, my friends, becomes rich in creative potential.

If you're creating at the studio, don't forget to add the hashtag #createfulartfix to each photo you upload on your Instagram account!

Our hashtag gallery is filling up—hop onto Instagram and search for #createfulartfix to see all the beautiful work. You can follow that hashtag, too, so when people add new work it will appear in your feed. 

P.S. if you don't know how to use Instagram yet—I will show you how! Just arrange a time to come in to the studio and It will literally take you 15 minutes to get going.


You can come to any Art Fix class any day of the week, any week, as long as seats are available (RSVP on our meetup site).

Tuesday and Thursday Art Fix classes are scheduled every week unless otherwise announced here and on Meetup.

Art Fix Saturday and Open Studio dates are scheduled several months in advance.
