Got Kids? Got Teens? Got Rolling Eyes?
In Reality, we all do!
Kids challenge us and pull away from us...and it's all natural and normal.
But with some effort, amazing connections and memories can be made
with consistent, creative, fun time spent together.
Family First is a pre-planned all done-for-you monthly membership
designed to assist busy, over scheduled, and possibly disconnected families
re-connect during the growing years.
Through dedicated time together, we will help you build strong connections
and make lasting memories (and art you'll actually love for your walls!)
and traditions to last for generations!
And Family Art is the Best Art!
Pre-prepared done-for-you art projects delivered monthly to save you research time
Takes the pressure off you to plan it all
Dilutes the arguments over what to do (already decided for you!)
Gets everyone off screens and in sync with each other
You get new family created art for your home or to give as gifts!
Let's you get to the main point....having fun TOGETHER!
Because just like anything with kids....it's all about theTime!
3 Important Reasons to be More Creative as a Family
Creativity predicts a longer life
According to James Clear, creating art decreases negative emotions, reduces stress and anxiety, and improves medical outcomes. Not only can being creative help you live longer, but it can improve your quality of life and health, too.
2. Creating art builds stronger problem solving skills
Being creative helps everyone in the family become better at problem solving in all areas of life and work.
3. Working together develops confidence
Engaging in the creative process as a family is a great confidence builder, because you discover that failure is part of the artistic process. Once we see failure as something that is survivable, and something that helps us grow as a person and as a family unit, we can release the fear and try new things even at the risk of failing.....because above all else...ART IS FUN!
As we all know,
families that create together, have fun together!
Empowering Families thru Art
We empower families with growing kids to stay connected by providing creative activities so that they can strengthen their relationships and consistently set aside time for each other in a creative atmosphere.

Frequently Asked Questions
What will we get each month with the Family First Art Program Membership?
- One Monthly Family Friendly Project that you can do in one session, or you can choose to seperate the project into 1, 2, 3, or 4 weeks depending on your famiy schedule that month and the amount of time you will be dedicating each week to making Family First.
Optional weekly activities related to the monthy project theme.
Bonus In-between arts and crafts ideas for the kids/adults who can't get enough.
Supply List and substitution suggestions.
Life-time access to all content as long as you are a member.
Access to a private Facebook Community of like-minded parents to learn from, to help with accountability to keep your family on track and commited, answer questions, and connect. Great place to ask questions of other parents!
Access to Creative Guide for answering questions, etc.
How much time will each project take each month?
This is totally dependant on your family and the project. But, about an hour is a great goal to set and will alllow you to stretch some projects out over the month. But, honestly, about the time of a movie is a common amount of time. It all depends on what you are adding to this time together....like dinner before, or appetizers or snacks while creating, a walk, etc.
What supplies will we need?
Artists love to work minimaly with available supplies and love to use found objects and recycling materials. Why? It enhances the creativity gene to think outside the box. The goal here is to promote creativity and sometimes not having the "perfect" supply is the perfect way to get everyone thinking outside the box. So, don't be inclined to rush right out and buy all the best art supplies. Not having exactly what you needs instills skills such as inventivenss, adapability, resourcefullness and more. Even when a member of the family gets frustrated with an art supply not working right they learn determination. So much life lessons to be learned, practiced and mastered while making art!
What kind of a work space will we need so we don't mess up our house?
This will be key for you to prep prior to your first painting session if you are concerned about the mess that can be made while making art. But, my best advice is that the best part about art is that it is messy!
When will we receive the monthy project?
You will receive the monthly main project and all the bonuses on the first of every month. From there, you can map out your month and how it will all best fit your family.
What age group is this program for?
The Family First Art Program membership was designed for families with tweens and teens after so many families started coming to Paint Nights at the in-person studio, but it can be enjoyed by everyone. We began to see the power of creating together and the value it gave parents at ages when kids traditioanlly begin to pull away.
Who can do this program - especially non-traditional families?
Any combination of family and freinds can participate.
What if some family members are not "creative?"
Just like with most activities that a family participates in, not everyone will like it or be skilled at it. But, sometimes those things tried are the very things that end up being a surprise favorite!
Will every project be a painting?
Nope. While painting is a big part of this program, there will be lots of ways to paint on lots of different objects and plenty of projects with no painting at all. Check out the photos in the photo gallery and see some of the potential projects that you will be making over time.
