"Every child is an artist. The problem is how
to remain an artist once we grow up."
Art is Good are creative workshops which nurture expression and facilitate creativity through fine art.
The focus is more on "what" you are making...
your idea. Art is Good is like nothing you have
We hope to inspire each artist to recognize that they already have creativity in them and can make art for a living or just for themselves. Art is Good exists to: stoke confidence, help individuals grow as creative thinkers and to provide an environment to enjoy a shared creative experience. We teach that you cannot make art wrong, unless you do not make it.
We teach that art is good.
