Our Mission

The Painted Turtle is a vibrant art studio which encourages and nurtures a community that is curious and passionate about fine and imaginative arts. A haven for creators and makers, we strive to cultivate creative spirit and challenge students to reach, and then grow beyond, their goals.

Instruction at The Painted Turtle

The Painted Turtle offers various courses and workshops for ages seven through adults, which explore different subjects, mediums, and techniques while fostering artistic freedom and personal interests in students. Each course, whether focused on drawing, painting, or mixed media, is instructed with supportive and personable guidance that enforces problem solving, inventiveness, and originality. Students will work both inside the studio as well as venturing outside onto The Nature of Things campus for year-round life studies. Please visit our Studio & Grounds page for more information.

Private lessons and home school groups are always welcome and may be arranged for Monday through Friday.
