We are so happy you found us! PurrPoseful Art Studio is a unique, one of a kind concept you will not find anywhere else. If your child is between the ages of 7 and 17 and has a love for animals and a passion for art, you've come to the right place! 

Creating Art with PURRpose!

Register now for Evening Classes!


At PurrPoseful Art Studio ​we combine Humane Education (fostering compassion, responsibility and kindness for all animals) with practical art instruction, where children will have the opportunity to create two-dimensional prints of some of their favorite animals. Maybe even their own pet at home. 


Students will create a black and white pencil drawing that will later be transferred to a printmaking plate and turned into a limited edition print. Students will create 2 editions, one to keep, and one to sell at an annual fundraising benefit where the proceeds will be donated to local animal rescue organizations.
