Thanksgiving Turkey Crafts

Join Mandy for a morning of Thanksgiving-inspired crafting.  Perfect for ages 6 to 11, there will be a range of turkey-themed projects ideal for a centerpiece at your table.  There will be a nut-free snack provided.  $35 and all supplies included.


After School Art Club

The 1st and 3rd Tuesday of every month from 3:45 to 5:00pm


OCTOBER 2 & 16



(*We do not meet when kids do not have school!)

The After School Art Club is designed for K through 5th graders and will combine a mixture of fun art and fine art.  Possible areas of “study” will be book making, art journaling, watercolor, illustration, assemblage, collage, jewelry making, stamp carving, and more.  Kids will be encouraged to follow their own creative desires and not necessarily a prescribed project.  I’m finding they are happiest when they can make what they want.  I’ll always have a project available but more often than not, children will follow their own path.  The cost is $20 per session.  This includes all materials and a simple snack.  Shadow box designed below by Rohen, age 11.






ADULT CLASSES! (in no particular order!)

Mixed-Media Art Journaling Fridays

A different art journaling lesson every 2nd and 4th Friday per month from 4:00 – 6:00pm:


OCTOBER 12 & 26


DECEMBER 14 & 28

In these sessions, we will explore different techniques using a wide range of art supplies. We will write just a little bit but we will mainly explore page composition and general artsy mess making.  This is a no-mistakes approach!!  Each student should bring to class cold press watercolor paper or a mixed media art journal. $20 per session.


Ballerinas Wearing Wool Cat Suits

Sunday November 25th from 10:00am to 3:30pm

Learn the basics of cutting up felted wool sweaters and sewing them into an adorable cat-costumed ballerina doll.  All steps to creating this stuffed doll will be taught including how to make a gorgeous wrap-around tutu embellished with funky found objects.  Make your cat have purrsonality with a simple hand-stitched face.  A purrfect gift for that cat/doll/dance lover in your life.  Yes, I did just use that pun two times in a row.  $95 and includes all materials.







Want to book an art or craft party?  We’d LOVE to help you out.  We hold parties for kids and adults at The Painted Dog and have even been known to travel for home parties as well. Email Mandy at with your idea and we can discuss!
