What we're about

Greetings!

Welcome to The Art Room located at Mastiff Studios by Amy Brown. The Art Room is a special place because the goal is to make life better through art. There is a small gallery and studio located at 2919 West Colorado Ave next to the Mason Jar in Colorado Springs. If you would like to shop online (links are at Mastiff-Studios.com), there are items on multiple websites that will be printed and shipped right to you anywhere in the world.

Classes, lessons, and events will be listed as well as PTSD/Trauma group Meet-up. Since trauma recovery can be very difficult, please call or email Amy directly at 303-656-1428 or mastiffstudios@hotmail.com to schedule a private session or join a group. She will post when a group is full. Amy is not a licensed therapist, but can be a vital part of the healing process. Please go to Mastiff-Studios.com to learn more what therapeutic art sessions are.

Have a wonderful day!

Amy

Saturday Art/Craft Classes from 1-3/Simple One Point Cabin

2919 W Colorado Ave

$20.00

Every Saturday from 1-3 Mastiff Studios will be holding an art/crafts class. The shop opens at 12 and closes at 4. Each week I will post what the class will be about, the cost, and if all of the supplies are included. You are welcome to bring a snack/drink with you to enjoy while you work. Mastiff Studios does have a resident English mastiff named Spartacus. If you do not like dogs, please let me know ahead of time, and I will make sure he is not in the creative space. He absolutely loves people, but he is a large dog. If, for some reason, I need to cancel class, I will post it as canceled as soon as possible, and I will send out a group email. This should not happen often, but sometimes life does not go exactly as planned. March 30 will be an introduction of one point perspective. The goal is to draw a simple cabin in pencil. All supplies are included. The cost is $20 per participant. Classes are small as the studio space is not large, and I believe that guided instruction is important for artistic growth.
