Come see for yourself.

WHY IT WORKS

Our evidence-based programming sets you up to reduce stress, build problem solving skills, and improve mood.

We design our classes to inclusive, welcoming, and accessible to everyone.

 

There's nothing else like it.

The Experience

We're on a mission to help get creative and take care of your health.

Here's how we make it happen.

Our Creative Space

Our bright, lofty studio is stocked with art materials, aprons and work stations that can be customized to your comfort.

 

We're set up so that you have enough space to maintain a bit of privacy while you work, but can still connect with the amazing collective creativity and energy floating through the space.

 

It's just not the same as doing it alone at your kitchen table.

 

You'll see what we mean...

The Minutes Before

We'll ask you to leave your phone and other personal belongings in our bench and locker area, so that you can drop ALL of your baggage and really get into the flow with your creative process.

If you're early, feel free to grab a glass of water from the kitchen and flip through one of our art books  on a bench.

You're also welcome to get your table adjusted before class if you'd like it set to a different height or on a tilt.

Our studio is your studio, so make yourself comfortable.

The Class Cadence

We always start with about  10 minutes of art demonstrations or intro to materials, an overview of our approach, and time for questions.

Then it's time to start making! 

We'll have a bit of background music going, and talking is kept to a minimum. We'll never interrupt your process, but we're there the second you wave us down for back up.

Classes wrap up with time for a guided reflection to help you notice your experience, easily practice mindfulness, and transition back out of your creative flow space.

The Result

You'll leave feeling uniquely relaxed and energized, with a reinforced sense of your creative capacity.

All of our classes are designed to help you tap into flow experience and access feelings of joy and calm. Many people also report noticing something new about themselves through the process.

Each person's experience is unique, yet there's always that commonality of having created something...out of nothing.

  

Yep, you'll do that too. We can't wait to see you do it.

Come Render!

Because we strive to be as inclusive as possible, our studio is an alcohol free space.
