"There are no such things as mistakes, only happy accidents". Julie Wurtele, Artfully You Director
A note from our founder:
"With Artfullyyou we believe we are all born artists, without concerns about our work being perfect. As we become adults we forget our inner child and worry that our work isn't good enough. I want every student whether they are a child or adult to be present and playful in our lessons, to embrace happy accidents and strive to be different".
Since the pandemic we have seen an enormous growth in our business. We now offer five public classes a week to kids and adults in painting and drawing and we are also busy with large and local corporate team building sessions, birthday parties and art therapy programs. Thank you everyone for your support and for bringing so much joy to our work!

Thats why we call our program "Confidence Though Creativity". We also believe that art is an important part of our lives that is often overlooked.
