Art is when you hear a knocking from your soul.... and you answer.
We believe that art can help the healing process, encourage self-reflection, imagination and appreciation of beauty.
Education isn't just about feeding the brain. Art and music feed the heart and soul.
No matter your age, you can find joy and fulfillment in creating art.
At Joyful Creations Studio the following precautions are being taken by our staff of instructors, and we ask the individuals coming to the studio for classes to do the same.
Masks are now required in the state of Indiana. Your instructor will also be wearing a mask.
We have also taken the precautions of having hand sanitizer available, as well as sinks in the entry and restroom.
