Gifting a Class
This holiday season, consider giving someone the opportunity to be creative. A class is truly a gift of happiness that keeps on giving. Plus you can feel good that you are supporting the artist/teachers instructing the classes, as well as your local family owned art supply store. There are plenty of classes to choose from and more will be added as they are scheduled. Click on the picture to the left to see the class schedule.

You can't go wrong with one of these. These beautiful handmade certificates can be for any denomination and used on one or multiple visits towards merchandise or classes with no expiration date.

Bring a smile to someones face, remember us for stocking stuffers and Gag Gifts! Ton's of funny, insulting, crazy little things like the full size Inflatable Turkey, Bacon Bandages, Instant British Accent Spray, and of course the classic extending Freeloader Fork. Check it out!

NEW Winsor & Newton Water Colour Markers
These markers deliver precision and control and are compatible with all W & N watercolors and mediums. Their lightfast formulation offers optimal performance, transparency and brightness. Each twin-tip marker has a flexible brush tip on one end and a fine point tip on the other end. Once a drawing is made with markers, it can then be transformed into a watercolor painting by applying water with a brush. The sooner water is applied, the better the resulting washes will be. Colors can be mixed either on the paper or on a palette. All sets on sale, see our Holiday Gift Guide above.
