A little about me
Hello and welcome. My name is Shelly and I am owner and operator of Elm Street Studio.
I am a certified art specialist with more than 18 years of teaching experience. I just recently left my high school teaching profession in order to operate Elm Street Studio full time. I take pride in the fact that our instructors are either certified educators with the state of Texas or have significant years of experience and expertise in their respective field as well as an understanding of how to transfer that knowledge. Teaching is a craft in and of itself, not to be undervalued. Art is the visual documentation of human history. It is a universal language. Do you know it? If not, consider joining us and learning more about yourself, your culture, and the community around you. Whether you find nourishment in seeing what new treasures we have in the gallery or if you would like to discover the joy of mark-making, we have something here at Elm Street Studio to nurture your creative endeavors.
Elm Street Studio is the perfect location for your next special event. We have maintained the cottage charm of our newly renovated, 70-plus year old home. It makes the perfect backdrop for your wedding, reception, party, or shower. Seeing is believeing.
Our doors are open to you, your friends, and your family. Our space may be reserved for special events. It is the perfect setting for intimate weddings, receptions, bridal and baby showers, and birthday parties for the young and old. You may provide your own food and beverage, or I am happy to make those arrangements for you. We hope you make Elm Street Studio your home-away-from-home for all of life's special moments.
Gallery and Boutique
We have a new exhibit of fine art about every two months. With each new show there will be an opening reception in honor of the artist. Please join us then or stop by during regular gallery hours. In an effort to give back to our community, we ask each of our artists to join with us and donate a portion of art sale proceeds to a charity of their choice. In addition to the rotating gallery exhibit, we have handmade crafts from local artists in our Boutique. Check back frequently to see what new treasures we have added.
We offer a variety of creative classes to nurture your creative endeavors. Our offerings include but are not limited to drawing, painting, printmaking, fibers, lost arts, painting parties, crafts, etc. We are happy to design a private painting party for you and your friends. It is a great way to have fun, learn a little about painting, and most importantly, socialize with friends. It is great for neighbor groups, girlfriends, book clubs, Mommy groups, families, etc. You are welcome to bring drinks and snacks and I will provide the canvas, instruction, and a little humor.
