The Glenelg-based studio in Adelaide is a hive of color and activity where many life events are celebrated such as art birthday parties and Kids Art classes.

There are also a variety of school holiday workshops as well as ‘paint and sip’ classes. With art proving to be a relaxing activity, many use their time at the studio to relax and unwind from their daily stresses.

“We teach all forms of art to all types of people. We have had some blind students create art and we will work with people of any ability, to keep them motivated. We cater to all types of art, at any level,” she said.

Not only is art in play, Maggie also organizes ‘Crafternoons’ where craft is created from makeshift items.

“For example, we were painting a denim jacket. We could use furniture, we create collages and we’ve even made old bags out of jeans.
