Discover the beauty of St. Croix at your own pace

St. Croix 100 - #32 Art ClassesIf you are feeling creative, or just looking for something new to try, why not take an art class? The variety of art classes available on St. Croix is constantly expanding and changing, offering endless possibilities of ways to unlock your creativity. Whether you are a novice or you have never taken an art class in your life, there is something for everyone! As an added bonus, taking an art class is a fun way to get out and meet new people in a fun, stress-free environment.

For those of you who have not yet experienced an art class as adult, the thought of trying to create artwork in a room full of people may sound a bit intimidating. Well, fear not! Taking an art class will bring out your inner child and evoke a sense of joy. The classroom environment offers some basic instruction and guidance that can help those of you who think you're not 'creative types' to get those creative juices flowing. Plus, in my personal experiences at The Blue Mutt art classes, everyone in the classroom creates something a little bit different, and everyone is very supportive and encouraging of everyone else.

Art Class at The Blue Mutt

Many people immediately think of painting when they think of art classes. Well, there are, in fact, lots of painting classes available for different skill levels and in different mediums. However, there is an endless amount of creative possibilities, so don't limit yourself to painting. The Blue Mutt, for example, offers classes in making mosaic candle holders, origami, batik fabric, candle making, book/journal making, zentangles, fimo clay, recycled plastic bottle flowers, and mixed media collage. If you need some liquid courage to loosen up and try painting you might enjoy their occasional 'Champain'ting' classes, which include wine or champagne and light hors d'oeuvres as you paint your own masterpiece.

Art classes are available for both adults and children. The cost of the different classes offered at The Blue Mutt vary, but they include the instruction as well as the supplies and materials. The classes change, so check out our Calendar of Events for the current class schedule. You can also have a private 'pARTy' event at The Blue Mutt, which is a fun and unique way to celebrate a birthday or have a girls night out. The very wise Albert Einstein said: 'Creativity is contagious, pass it on.' So, get creative, and pass it on!
