Art for Fun! Studio & Gallery is an innovative Studio and Gallery offering open studio classes and art parties for ages 6 - adult, with
No Experience Necessary

Anybody can learn art in this fun, relaxed, non-intimidating environment.  No artistic experience necessary.  Art for Fun! is an "open studio" concept, which allows you to take any class at any time.  Classes are totally customized to suit your needs.  Class sizes are small, with no minimum number of students needed for a class.  You can start a class whenever it fits your schedule.  There is no minimum number of classes required.  Some classes may have students working on different projects - not all students need to be working in the same medium.  This flexibility makes it easy for you to find the time to bring out your creativity or to try new forms of art.  New students receive one-on-one instruction and learn everything from scratch.

"My boyfriend and I started going to Art For Fun for a date night a few months ago and got hooked on glass fusion. Artist/studio owner/ teacher Barbara's motto, "you don't have to be an artist to create art" holds true. On the first night, I created three pairs of earrings and two pendants from free scrap glass--and my friends and I have received many compliments when we wear my art! After I've fulfilled my special occasion gift list for family and friends for the next year (I've already created jewelry, suncatchers, serving platters and miscellaneous dishes), I want to learn silk painting, maybe clay sculpturing, or watercolor techniques). I've brought in two friends for the glass fusion instruction and also my teenage grandson who's into clay sculpture and they all have learned from Barbara's expertise and instruction in her free-flowing classes.

p.s. I've checked around and found this glass art class is the best deal going for price and instruction. And you'll be taught by an expert--Barbara's a former art teacher and this year placed second in the International Glass Competition for her 8' long "Jerusalem Wall" glass mosaic. "

"My studio time at Art for Fun! is my “get-away-from-it-all” time, where I can just be creative and encouraged and not worry about anything else. I look forward to it all week! And Barbara is more than an artistic mentor: she is a friend and sets the tone for lots of fun and camaraderie."
