Welcome to Artsy Smartsy!


See our 2009 Interview, we have come such a long way!

Artsy Smartsy began in 2010 in the basement activities room of Chandler Place Assisted Living, in St. Anthony Villiage, MN for Dolly Ferguson,( Tina, our owner's, late grandmother)and her senior home neighbors. It was a way to encourage her to meet new friends and also to help Dolly continue her joyful life and inspire her creativity after her husband Huberts' sudden and unexpected passing.

Today, Artsy Smartsy provides high quality and fantastically fun art classes to over 500 seniors EACH MONTH in both Arizona and Minnesota!  The program, which is the first and only one of its kind in these areas, travels as an outreach program to Senior Communities and Co-op's, Independent or Assisted Living, Memory Care Residences, Adult Day Programs, Senior Community Centers and Library systems.  We have provided community activities at local Art Fairs and Festivals and teach weekly at private institutions such as SCAN Healthcare in AZ and Park Nicollet Strother's Parkinsons Hospital in MN.

The art mediums taught each month vary wildly to attract people of ALL interests.  Some mediums include; watercolors, acrylics, oil pastel resist paintings, mosaic mirrors & bottles & stepping stones, jewlery making, paper making and multi-media collage to fine fabric projects such as weaving and wreaths making. Artsy Smartsy aims to provide inexpensive FINE art classes to any and every one, even those underserved adults who have very limited incomes. We bring in QUALITY art projects which the students can be PROUD to call their own! They will want to display their works and give them as gifts. This goal requires the use of HIGH quality materials at each and every class!
