Spectaculour Metamorphosis!

Spectaculous Metamorphosis began today at Windsor Elementary. We learned about patterns, color, and textures.

Carve Out Time to Join us Next Year at Bare Knuckle Arts-Steal Like an Artist!

One of our favorite art books is Steal Like an Artist by Austin Kleon. It’s been out for awhile but definitely a great and inspirational book for all people trying to carve out some time to do art. It’s more about thinking and about self-initiated art making or creating. We invite you to join us Bare Knuckle Arts, in the upcoming 2019 year to carve out some time to make art, to create. There are lots of options from beginning painting classes, home school art, After School Monday and Tuesday Art classes for children. Thank you for this year and we hope to see you in the studio soon!!!
