To the Class of 2023…

We’re so proud of all that you’ve accomplished & wish you the best as you explore all the world has to offer!

🌩️It’s Puzzle Weather🍵

We just got in a new shipment of puzzles! New additions include Van Gogh’s Starry Night, Klimt’s The Kiss, and Munch’s The Scream. Perfect for the unusual stormy weather we’ve been having lately so get cozy & get puzzling!

We’re proud to host the California Central Coast Pastel Society for our exhibit “Luminous Expressions”.

“Our primary objective is to bring soft pastel to the forefront as a fine art medium.  Since we live and work in one of the most beautiful parts of California, it’s not hard to find inspiration here. 

We share and enlighten others about pastel art through annual exhibitions, painting demonstrations and classes, field trips and online learning, as well as workshops with nationally known and local artists.”
