  • KA Artist Shop 127 N. Jackson St. Athens, GA 30601 (map)

Here we will tap into our most creative selves. Are you intimidated by art? Do you think you’re bad at it? You’re not. I promise. Are you curious about what you can do with art mediums? We will try all kinds of materials and methods as well as learn about incorporating them into our lives through creative journaling and sketching. Together we will absolve anything that’s keeping you from being your most artistic and get rid of any judgment you may have toward what you’re capable of. Creativity and art-making is for us all. For adults of any level - this is about having fun with art and learning about what we love.

This class is limited to 8 people. We require a minimum of 3 people to make the workshop happen, so bring a friend!


  • You'll need some basic drawing tools for this class: a couple pencils (2H and 4B preferred), a thin black pen (we love the .005 Micron), some watercolors, a watercolor brush, and a multi-media sketchbook. You can bring these supplies from home or purchase our discounted set HERE.
  • Bring some snacks for yourself or to share if you'd like to eat while you're here.
