“I have enjoyed and benefited from taking several classes at MakeSpace Kayenta. The classes have been presented by a professional working artist in a well-appointed and comfortable studio space. My experiences have been fun and rewarding because, fortunately, the Instructor also challenged me to openly explore my imagination as well as the art-making process. I have been along side novice students, like me, as well as established artists, many of whom are my Kayenta neighbors. I happily recommend taking a class because it will spark your spirit, it supports the artists, and it strengthens our amazing community!”

I have taken three classes with “make a space” and have just signed up for a forth. Great instructors, small class sizes and varied medium so it is always a creative learning experience!! So worth it!

I’ve never thought of myself as having an artistic bone in my body, but my partner registered us for a beginner’s acrylic art class at MakeSpace last month, and I decided to give it a try. I was a little bit anxious the day of the course (knowing that I can’t draw a straight line) but my concerns were unwarranted. From the moment we arrived, I found a very relaxed, supportive, and collegiate atmosphere in the studio. Our instructor led a brief orientation session (very informative and helpful). All of the art supplies were provided for me at my workstation. All I had to do was put on my apron and start “creating”. Time flew by as I prepared my canvas, mixed colors, let my guard down, created a few “art” pieces and had fun. I’ll likely keep my day job but I’m proud that I stepped outside of my comfort zone and tried something new and had a great time doing it!
