2018 Art Classes


Butler Studio Art Class List

We are thankful for all of you!  For as much as we may have impacted your journey in painting, you have equally impacted us with your support and patronage over the years.  In 2018, Butler Studio will be 10 years young as a business in Historic Downtown Gastonia.  What began as a small 800 sq. ft. studio for my own painting has grown into a teaching facility with a curriculum of 10 classes and 5 highly qualified instructors.  Our classes continue to be fun, engaging and challenging to inspire, motivate and nudge the artist to begin to create their own artistic journey.  We believe we are furthering this pursuit in 2018 by adding an Art History class taught by Adam Justice of the Mint Museum, an Open Painting class with live jazz ensemble and a Polish Your Paintings Class.  We hope you will take a look at our list of classes attached here as well as our website and find the class or classes you are planning to attend in 2018.
