Bountiful Arts Studio
as of August 31, 2017, no longer offering classes!
Bountiful Arts Ltd. is a Toledo area art studio, located just outside the Village of Waterville, Ohio. We opened a classroom studio (literally) in the old Waterville Elementary School along the Maumee River in 2008. When the Village decided to close the school's doors, the only viable option for a new studio was in the enclosed, insulated, wired bay of the 1849 barn we had recently moved to our property. This barn, had it remained at its original location on Neowash Rd., would have been destroyed because of the new U.S. Rt. 24 Bypass. Fortunately, it is now a prominent feature on our property. We have since moved the studio into one of our home's unused spaces.
Bountiful Arts Ltd. offers ongoing drawing and painting classes for children and adults, as well as special study classes which may include color theory/mixing; composition; perspective; oil, acrylic, pastel and watercolor painting; hardshell gourd painting and scarf painting, and new in 2016: group party classes in creating holiday ornaments!
Weather, available live models and schedules permitting, we also hold monthly Life Drawing sessions - a favorite for both the budding or experienced artists among us!
