Melissa Cain - owner/art instructor
I am a self-taught artist with over 20 years of painting experience. I began painting on a regular basis as a way to relieve stress and help with my epilepsy. Around the same time I got the idea to start doing kid's classes and parties after my son asked for a painting birthday party in January 2012. Word spread quickly and soon I was doing adult parties and classes as well. In September 2014 I took the next step and opened up my art studio and gift shop, on the square, in downtown Danville, In. It was a lot of fun, having my own retail space, but after a couple of years, I decided to switch back to the in-home studio. I have continued to teach, create and pursue my art dreams. I have now relocated to Southern California! I still enjoy doing paint parties and private lessons and will continue that passion, both in California and Indiana, during visits. I am willing to travel beyond these two locations, as well, with some proper planning and enough notice! I'm passionate about the healing & therapeutic values of art. My goal with each student is to let them express themselves by giving color choices and other options. I want to teach you how to create something all your own, not just a copy of mine. Contact me if you want to have some creative fun!
