Art Therapy Studio is the ONLY painting studio you will find in the whole US of A that you can paint on SNEAKERS, T-SHIRTS, and TOTE BAGS in addition to a classic canvas class.

I opened up a tiny paint studio that could only fit 12 painters in a shared spaced in 2016 in NYC.  Once the COVID pandemic forced me to close down my space, I packed up and moved to sunny Florida! My studio was founded on a love for painting and pop culture, has now evolved into an eclectic, multi-faceted mobile art studio.

Mary hosted a paint a tote bag event for my team. She accommodated my request to design an image for the west coast theme. She was also very responsive on tracking the shipping and made sure we got everything in time. We truly enjoyed the session!

I had a really nice time. I did have some personal interruptions that prevented me from finishing my painting but I loved the class and the team bonding. Thank you!

Mary has a very relaxed and encouraging energy, so it made it very fun for the not so artistically inclined! A fun way to help bring a remote working team together!

I would give our class a 10 if that was a choice. My family and I did this on vacation because we wanted to do something that was not a tourist attraction. There were 6 of us from ages 4-58 and we had a blast. 3 of us had high tops and 3 had the slip on shoes. I paid for an extra hour which was soooooo worth it. We all decided to do our own designs and for those non-creative the teacher provided Stencils we could choose from.

I cannot say enough about Mary our teacher. She came with everything we needed including aprons. She was so patient with us as we each worked on our shoes. She helped the little ones while the adults worked on their designs. It was great to learn about her and her family as she became a lasting part of ours. I would recommend doing the paint your sneakers class to anyone. You do not have to be creative to do this because Mary can teach you a design if you prefer that. Also her communication was out of this world.

Mary was great! We had teammates both virtually and in person. She handled the distribution and shipping of the kits to everyone, which was amazing. We would definitely recommend Art Therapy Studio for your next event.

We used this class as a virtual team building event. It was a huge success. All the materials needed for the class were mailed out ahead of time. The instructor, Mary, was very pleasant and helped the team follow step by step how to paint the picture. She was incredibly patient. No one on the team is a visual artist, but Mary was able to help us all create something quite lovely. I would highly recommend this for a fun activity for friends, family or corporate events!

This experience was awesome from the beginning. Communication was great and prompt. The venue moved from outside to inside and that was also very wise. My 12 year old son enjoyed it as well. It was a great thing to do together. Mary was warm and welcoming and made the environment comfortable and fun

Nancy Dec 2022

The options were great, including a range of images and levels of creativity. The instructor was engaging but also allowed our team space to have our own moments. In terms of materials, 2/5 of us did not receive the materials on time or at all so that was a little disappointing.

Teacher's response

Thank you for the feedback Nancy! Shipping delays around this time of year can be a bit of a challenge so I totally get your disappointment. I did keep your group updated as best I could but these things are not always within our control. I'm glad to hear that you enjoyed the class otherwise and thank you for the kind words!

Good stuff, nice instructor. Tote is big enough for a few beach reads, snacks, and a few other things that you get to work with.

Camieka Dec 2022

The class was well guided and very interactive. The environment that was curated was amazing even though it was virtual.

Blythe Rudloff Dec 2022

Even with a quick turnaround, we were almost all able to get our paint supplies in time-- next time we'll give more advanced notice now that we know it's so easy. Mary did an excellent job guiding us so we could make beautiful paintings and we were all really happy. This was our first time taking a class with y'all and we'll definitely be doing it again!
