Earth Angel Arts welcomes you to come and create art with us at the NEW company store where you can get messy and have loads of fun working with a variety of materials as you learn to create gifts for yourself or someone you love. “I made it myself” are four foundational words for our business (and our personal lives!) and we can’t wait for you to experience the joy of being able to utter them as you present a loved one with something you made with your own heart and hands!
Contact me for more information on scheduling art & craft making experiences for bridal parties, birthday celebrations, book groups, you name it – we can shape a class just for you and your occasion for a group of 3-6.
