The First Friday Art Talk of April will be on April 6th at 6:30pm. It will be “The Philosophy of Color” with Audra Saunders. What is it about the rainbow that gives most people a sense of happiness? Sure,, it signifies the calm after a storm, but the colors themselves have a effect on our minds. There is a reason why people prefer certain colors over others. This preference says volumes about our personalities because each color has an association with a reaction our brain has when we internalize it. Color perception is subjective, and certain colors have a very universal significance. Color psychology should be a very important tool used by artists, interior decorators, and has been a marketing mechanism in many industries. This presentation brings to light how to use color in your art to achieve certain effects. The general public is always invited to these free events. Refreshments will be served.

Look for these talks to continue on the first Fridays of every month! We are open to suggested topics from you!


Would you like to plan an arty birthday party for a budding artist? Think of how unique it would make it to hold it in an actual art studio classroom. Call Creative Ventures Gallery and see how your date would fit into the teaching schedule and we will find a teacher to instruct the teaching time. Bring you own refreshments.

Creative Kids Camp is a morning art camp during April break (April 23-27). Students 8+ will be able to explore a variety of media. More details can be found here.

Time to start thinking about Art Summer Camps!!!! We will be running two sessions – the week of July 16th and the week of July 23rd. One session will be with Tami Sciola-Borelli and the other will be with Kristine Brock. Details can be found here.
