The Playful Pencil Art Studio was opened by Jodi Appleton in 2017 to provide a fun and welcoming space where students of all ages could learn and practice their drawing and illustration skills.  Class sizes are kept small so that everyone can receive individual instruction and lesson plans are adjusted to meet the needs and interests of each individual group of students.

We offer school break camps as well as after school, weekend and evening programs for kids, teens and adults.  We also offer workshops to schools and companies (or private, in-home parties), birthday parties and private lessons.

There’s lots of fun to be had from drawing cartoons and portraits to designing intricate mandalas and sketching city scenes!  Find out what’s coming up and register by visiting our registration page.
