Why choose Artsy Smartsy?

We are highly trained Fine Artists!


As fine artists, each month we teach FINE ART TECHNIQUES in different mediums such as Painting, Mosaics, Jewelry, Decopage, Felting, Weaving, Spin Art, PaperMaking, Printmaking, Family Tree Making, Stenciling, Lamp Making, fabric arts and so much more! 

We only use the highest quality canvas, brushes, paints, stencils, equiptment, papers, substrates, glues and ephemera for all of our arts lessons. Great art is made with appropriate techniques and Great materials! 

Art History is for EVERYONE!


Not everyone may be an artist, but everyone loves listening to the fun, interesting and sometimes wacky history that we share about our daily lesson! It’s like two activities in one!

Our classrooms are sometimes lined with participants just there for the trivia about the technique and famous artists of the day! Van Gogh, Monet, Dali, Tiffany, Banksy, Britto,  Grandma Moses, O'Keefe...you name it, we have a lesson for it, and our highly animated and entertaining teachers will make this anything BUT a boring art history lesson! 

We do the work FOR YOU!


Great arts programming takes a lot of time! Lesson planning, smart shopping, material prepping, sample making, trial and error, beautiful fliers for marketing, and so much more! Leave it all to us! 

Our professional staff spends dozens of hours each month before we even get to you so that it’s all done RIGHT the first time! All you have to do is relax, and enjoy your residents, you BOTH deserve that!

Tiffany Wilkinson recommends Artsy Smartsy

Artsy Smartsy is amazing! They provide exceptional arts education and programming to individuals with disabilities, the aging population, and even at risk youth. It is an incredible business with standup values and core beliefs. I highly recommend using Artsy Smartsy ( Tina Marie Ferguson ) if you need programming and work with the populations they serve. And Tina is the best, kind, caring, and a professional. It has been an absolute pleasure working with you and supporting your amazing business and nonprofit. You impact so many lives positively. MN and AZ are lucky to have you!

Tina is incredible! Not just with Seniors, but artists of all ages! I had an Artsy Birthday party with Tina and my friends are still raving about her. She brought out the artist in all of us! We had four hours of fun and laughter until our sides hurt. Tina is so much fun, and so unbelievably creative! You must use Artsy Smarty for your creativity needs!

Kathy Kittleson recommends Artsy Smartsy

Love Tina's exuberance and love for all the seniors, who love her right back.  I have seen the joy on the faces of those who were sure they weren't creative. then went on to accomplish a project worthy of praise.  Never have I seen  anything to compare with the classes done by Artsy Smartsy!  Tenderness, love and compassion are wonderful traits of all the teachers.

Everyone is unique!
