Everyone can make art. Does that make us all artists? No, but we don’t all want to be artists. For people who pursue being an artist, who dedicate their life to it….We are just determined. And art making is something we really want to do and use as a way of expressing ourselves.

Whether one wants to make art, or relax and soothe their mind, they can find the opportunity to do both in the Differently Minded Art Studio. URBAN ART RETREAT offers small art classes, workshops, and retreats for the individual and small groups who would like to retreat for an afternoon.
