PurrPoseful Art Studio

SPONSORED 864.754.7582 | Millside Circle, Greenville, SC

Purrposeful Art C&A Aug 2022

Purrposeful Art Studio is a Humane Education Art Studio. We currently offer weeknight classes for children that have a love for animals and a passion for art!

We combine Humane Education (fostering compassion, responsibility and kindness to all animals) with practical art instruction!

Students will create a limited edition print of their favorite animal; maybe even their pet at home. Students will create 2 editions, one to keep, and one to sell at an annual fundraising benefit, where the proceeds will be donated to local animal rescue organizations.

Our commitment is to create a safe space, free of judgment, where children who are like minded, can come together to create art that saves lives!

Weeknight Classes: Ages 7-12

Tuesday evenings from 4:30-6:00pm. Consists of six (6) consecutive classes for a total of nine (9) hours.

Private Art Classes: Ages 13-17

Sunday evenings between 3:00-7:00pm. One or two hour sessions are available. Private sessions are unique to the students’ individual needs.
