OUR MISSION

We feel that the Arts are essential to the development of both children and adults. At Tony and Friends Art Studio, we teach Fine Art to both. Whether it's a painting class, drawing or cartooning, our instructors are very capable of  bringing the student to a great feeling of pride and accomplishment. Our goal is to develop the student and to bring out the artist within! After 17+ years of doing just that, we feel very rewarded to see the development and increased skill levels of our students. We keep it a relaxed and fun atmosphere here, where people look forward to coming back each week!
