Highland Arts & Crafts is an indy arts/crafts studio in Highland, IL offering painting classes in acrylic, oil and watercolor. There are classes that are suitable for all ages and private classes and parties are available for groups of 5 or more.
We aren’t just another chain place, we work to expand our offerings and include a variety of paint styles from simple “sip and paint” fun events to learning more fine art skills like oil painting.
Highland Arts & Crafts currently has two paint instructors who teach regular monthly classes. Christine, one of the shops owners, teaches acrylic painting to kids and adults. Laura instructs people of all ages in watercolor and oil painting.
Check our calendar and register early to get a seat in our next painting class. You’ll learn new techniques and have a lot of fun. We aren’t just another “sip and paint” place. We serve our painters complimentary herbal tea and snacks at every event. We strive to provide a relaxing atmosphere with comfortable, adjustable seating and large work tables to ensure your comfort.
Beyond painting, we also offer classes in many other mediums: mixed media, polymer clay, art journaling, mosaics and more. Stop in and see us or check our calendar for an upcoming event.
We are a couple of miles from I-70 and super easy to find. We are located at 207 Suppiger Lane in Highland – directly behind McDonald’s off of 143. You’ll find we are moments from many larger towns in the area and easy to reach from Troy, Edwardsville and Glen Carbon.
Many of our regular attendees come from Granite City and as far away as Centralia because they have so much fun! We hope you’ll give us a chance to show you a unique experience in a judgment free space that encourages creative expression at all levels.
