what we do
About our Art:
We love art! As artists ourselves, we enjoy creating art to share with others. As teachers, we enjoy sharing our love of art. Let's blend the two together:
We offer our creations for sale. If you are interested in browsing our pieces, please visit our store.
OR, join us for a class! We offer classes and camps to the community to share our love of art.
About our studio classes:
We were established in 2005 and are celebrating 11 years of sharing our love of arts with the community.
At AB Fine Art studio, we believe that art is the gateway to a broader education, stronger community and culture, and the cornerstone to a well-rounded individual. Our desire is to provide a safe environment that inspires individuals to embrace their creativity. We teach students, young and old, proper techniques while encouraging individuality, emphasizing the process rather than the product.

We love AB Art Studio! Our kids have been going for almost 3 years between an off site and their studio, and they adore the teachers! Ms. Kristin and Ms. Susan are two of the best teachers I have EVER met.
Ms. Susan is amazing with my daughter, and I look forward to seeing her masterpieces every week!!
