Students set the pace. Students choose to focus on skill building or relaxation or social benefits of LAC art studio.  Teens can prep for college or engage in social art. Adults love the music and relaxing atmosphere. Some students go on to sell and exhibit their art while others continue on to enjoy being part of a creative community. Whatever your intention is, we offer plenty of support and guidance. We offer instruction in many ways that support the diversity in our classes. If you want to design a structured learning course, we can support that in every way and even give homework assignments to build your skills!

A note to new students,

Hello and welcome to our little studio. Most new students are a bit nervous when they begin. It's a little intimidating for anyone to try something new especially if you don't know anyone in the class. But we promise that you'll feel right at home in a very short time. Our studio is designed for making people feel comfortable and supported. Some students come for relaxation more than producing a ton of artwork. Others come to progress in the arts and some come for the social aspects that we share in the studio. But no matter why you are interested in coming to LAC, we can offer you individual attention and plenty of encouragement.

So let us know how we can help you in any way. Having trouble deciding which class? give us a call or email

You don't know what medium you want to explore? no problem, we guide you through that decision.

Is there a special piece of artwork that you have always wanted to reproduce? we can help!

There's nothing in the world of painting and drawing that we can't face together!

So come on in and let's hop on this creative journey together.


Your art family is waiting!

Sincerely, LAC Staff & Sandra Sabene (Creatively Yours<3)
