StangARTs Studio & Gallery in Downtown Effingham has become a staple for those in the community to test out their artistic talents. They host public classes, private lessons, after-school/homeschool and summer programs for kids and private parties for those of all ages interested in trying their hand at being an artist. The always-updating gallery also has tons of great artwork for sale that appeals to a variety of tastes, and custom-order work is available.
The classes open to the public provide a wide range of media and materials used to create these works of art. In the recent past, classes have included acrylic and watercolor painting, charcoal for beginners, wood decor, wine glass painting and more. Classes often have a unique theme to appeal to an array of people, like Mommy & Me, Rockin’ into Summer, Couples’ Date Night and Tree of Life, among others. In some classes, you’ll be able to create your own design, while options are available to choose from in others. StangARTs hosts public classes for both adults and kids.
Booking private parties is also a popular option. Parties can be booked for any number of different occasions: bachelorette parties, team building, holiday fun, Girl Scouts and Cub Scouts gatherings, birthday parties, family outings and more. All materials are provided, and the instructors will help step-by-step the whole way, so no experience is necessary. You can decorate the gallery to your liking and order food and drinks or bring your own–the options for these parties are endless! In-house artists are there to help create a stress-free, fun environment with music, laughs and artistic expression.
So, what are you waiting for? Reserve your spot for a class or book a private party to spend some time out of the norm and in on the fun. You’ll be able to walk away with a great experience and your very own masterpiece.
