Mini Classes are an affordable, fun outlet for anyone beginning or seeking to advance their artistic skill! The classes are called "Mini Classes" because artist and instructor Jen Predoehl intentionally keeps class size small, so that each art student is able to receive personalized attention and instruction. With a class of 5 students max, it makes it a possibility to tailor the curriculum to the student's interest, while still being in the company of other art enthusiasts!
