For anyone looking to flex their creative muscle with their families, Studio 12 Thirteen has plenty of options this month. Sundays from 11am to 1pm, “Family Fun Day” includes hands-on projects that kids will be able to take home. You can also take your little artists to art classes during the week: “Child Picasso”on Mondays, allows kids to explore colors and textures; “Child Monet” happens on Wednesdays exploring the use of chalk and pastels; kids can experience surrealism during “Child Dali” on Fridays. These events are for ages two to five with an adult and all take place from 10-10:45am. In addition, there are events strictly for adults like “BYOB Paint Party” on Fridays or Saturdays (for ages 21 and older) and the “Coffee & Tea, Paint With Me” from Noon-2pm on Wednesdays (for ages 14 and older).
“I wanted to somehow combine my love of art, education, holistic healing, music, people, and serving others into a business,” said founder Sarah Hourigan. “Last fall, there was a ‘space for rent’ sign out in front of the building and, although I had no idea what I was going to put in the space, I just knew I needed to rent it and open a business that would compliment the other businesses already operating inside the Monclova Community Center.”
