Recommended Parking is Behind the Building

Behind the building is no charge; use the driveway. It is right next to the building on the left side. Drive slow when you enter, and watch out for others walking around. It may be difficult to see around the corner of the building as you approach the parking lot. Parking on the street is free. However, we recommend parking behind the building (not on the road) instead to load and unload supplies.


There is a door east of the parking lot in the back of the building; it opens directly into the classroom. The front door is closed and locked due to construction efforts. Please enter through the door behind the building connected to the parking lot.


Standing easels, table easels, and drawing boards are available.

Consumable Materials

Our supply cabinet is available to anyone taking our classes at this location. Some consumable materials are available for experimentation. This includes paint, ink, glue, etc.
