What activities do you offer for team building?
We offer corporate team building. Bring your team in for an outing and to build rapport. We have several options, all unique and fun.
Pass the painting. The group paints the same painting, but everyone passes their painting to the right every 20 minutes. Let the competition and fun begin!
Group mural. Each person paints a unique design, but all paintings must connect in some way when the class is finished.
Cut it up. This is great fun for birthday events also! You provide a photo or picture. Each person paints a section of the "cut-up" photo to create the finished design. This option creates a great wall hanging when complete and is perfect for your baby shower or other event.
Never painted before? Never wanted to paint before? Think of us as the organizers of fun! We provide the canvas, paint, apron and music. This allows you to shake off the stress of your day and focus on relaxing. When the class is over, you get to take home your own unique creation.
Come with a group or come alone to experience the joy of painting in a relaxed atmosphere. Selected paintings will be created at each class, and we will walk you through step by step. Even if you have never painted, we promise you will create a one-of-a-kind piece of art to take home and have plenty of fun in the process. Sign up for a class today!

We were founded in 2014 by Paula Heath, and have been located in Moberly ever since. As of Septemeber 1, 2020, Paula has passed on the ownership to Amanda Devenport and Summer Branstetter. Don't you worry, though! Paula is still our painting instructor! Summer has been part of the studio for the last three years by renting the back rooms as her photography studio. Amanda came into the mix by being the owner of Mimi's Creations and added crafting classes and retail space.
We are so excited to hang out with you!
