At Brush & Beak Arts Studio, our goal is to be a hub of creativity for the community. We want to teach folks how to tap into their creative energies to help them grow. In fact, we believe in that goal so much, we strive to provide art education to students of all ages.
At Brush & Beak, we wish to provide art education services through an affordable means, which separates us from the vast majority of private art schools out there that charge an arm and a leg. Our methodology consists of giving students maximum educational exposure to real artists, their work and technique, and the skills we can acquire to make art as they do in a condensed period of time. Thus, the experience is a combination of an art history lesson and application through art making, resulting in the completing of an original work of art. Art classes can be organized for small groups of adults and children. We have experience working with homeschool groups as well.
