Freestyle Afternoons are designed for people looking for some unstructured creative things to do individually or with friends. All painters must be 21+. We have over 70 paintings with written "self-guided" instructions to help you create your personal masterpiece on an 9 x 12" canvas. Anticipate 1 hour to complete your masterpiece so please arrive no later than 3:00 p.m. NO ARTIST HELP WILL BE AVAILABLE IN OUR OPEN STUDIO SETTING.

If you have some prior art experience or just like to try new things, you are welcome to paint anything in our studio that catches your fancy, but instructions are only provided for the designated 9 x 12" paintings. Upgrade in studio to a 16 x 20” or 10 x 30” canvas for only $5 more. Tote bag, apron or wood pallet upgrade, $10.
