Events led by Sid Korpi, instructor

Discover Your Inner Artist!

At Just Arting Around, we believe
there is an artist inside EVERYONE.
Even if you've never touched a

paintbrush before, with our easy-to-follow, step-by-step instruction, you'll walk
away from this party with a masterpiece created by YOU! Choose from the paintings above for your group's endeavor.
Choices will change periodically.
There are a great many public options for painting classes out there, but in them you're lost in a crowd of dozens of strangers and often rushed to complete your painting, with minimal personal attention from the instructor. Just Arting Around was created to fill the need for small-group (4–10 participants), private painting parties in a home setting rather than in a bar or restaurant with loud music and/or distracting TV screens. With us, you can relax with your own adult beverage if you'd like and share some snacks with your friends as you learn techniques to create a wonderful painting to take home.

Just Arting Around provides everything you need:

            1) An 11x14-inch canvas on an easel
            2) Paint brushes
            3) Acrylic paints
            4) Aprons
            5) Photos
            6) Three hours in which to paint
            * Several friendly West Highland Terriers on-site
(Beware those with allergies—you may wish to have your party at a private venue.)

You get your creative adventure for the low cost of $30 per person (four person minimum).
* The Just Arting Around Studio is Sid Korpi's Victorian Home (which is on the National Register of Historic Places in South Minneapolis).

For $45 per person—six-person minimum/10 person maximum—Sid Korpi will come to your home, office, church, etc. with all the fixings for fun. Parties can take place during the day or evening, weekdays or weekends, but by appointment only. Several possible dates are posted on the Square Store page, but you can always contact Sid with dates of your own.

Just call or text Sid at 612-369-6877 or email her at to set up your party.
