Faithful Strokes Art Studio provides so many opportunities to be creative and learn! We offer a quick and simple way of creating your own treasured work of art in just one class or private party. Don’t worry! An instructor will guide you step by step from a blank canvas or wood to your finished masterpiece. We supply all the materials and inspiration for your group of children or adults. All you have to do is come ready to paint and have a great time!


Want more art for yourself, your child, or your group? We host so much more than paint parties!! We also offer after and home school classes, summer camps, on-going adult classes, Days of Artistic Celebration, Family Fun Fridays, and other workshops like Pinterest-style or wood signs/crafts. And that’s just the beginning!! We also have an up-coming Art Connections Homeschool Tutorial! (see below)
