Who We Are

  • We are about Boise, community, and everything else there is to love about the City of Trees
  • We are proud members of Think Boise First and a featured business on ThisIsBoise.com
  • We are supporting and growing the local economy through grassroots efforts and working in cooperation with other awesome, locally owned businesses, including buying as many USA made supplies as locally as possible
  • We are bringing art’s many forms and the power of creation into the homes, lives, and hands of everyone
  • We are making art easy, accessible, and educational


“Over the last forty years, many educators, decision-makers, and even some parents have come to regard the arts as peripheral, and let’s face it, frivolous—especially the visual arts, with their connotation of ”the starving artist” and the mistaken concept of necessary talent”

-Betty Edwards, The New Drawing on the Right Side of the Brain


  • We are about people. This means YOU. Our professional artists are here to give you the most fun, the best information, individual attention, and exceed your expectations.
  • We are giving artists the opportunity to live their dreams, and shattering the “starving artist” stereotype.
    Are you an artist looking to make a living following your dream?  
    I did it– you can too!


“Being good in business is the most fascinating kind of art. Making money is art and working is art and good business is the best art.” -Andy Warhol


  • We are giving first. Even in our critical start-up years, we’ve made contributions to public schools, private preschools, homeschool co-ops, youth groups, The Women’s and Children’s Alliance, The TEARS Foundation, Green Works Idaho, and the Passport to Boise program, with no plans to stop there.


“In my own philanthropy and business endeavors, I have seen the critical role that the arts play in stimulating creativity and in developing vital communities….the arts have a crucial impact on our economy and are an important catalyst for learning, discovery, and achievement in our country.”
