Violet Art Studio: Accessible Art

I spent a productive afternoon making prints at Violet Art Studio, 223 E. Mifflin St. We bought the class through a groupon a few weeks ago–half off a two-hour printing class.

All supplies were there and  you could use anything you saw including a very cool gold ink. Experimentation was encouraged by Aliza, owner and artist-in-chief; and the freedom to “mess up” was enjoyed by all. I walked away with six nice prints. Violet Art Studio is in a huge Victorian house and the art room was flooded with sunlight on a cold February afternoon.

The class was fun and Aliza is knowledgeable and friendly. She teaches ceramics, linoleum block printing, and printing with styrofoam. There are classes for kids, classes for adults, and classes for adults with kids. You can arrange to have a group class or just sign up for a class and meet new people while making art.

What a great way to spend a cold winter afternoon. Be sure to check out Violet Art Studio.
