About Us

Family Owned Art Studio

I  grew up around Art my whole life. I was always taught to use my imagination and to never be scared to take chances. 

After I graduated college from Wilkes University and had my first child I knew I wanted to do more not only for myself but for my children. I wanted a place where I could go as a mom and create artwork with my child. Or have a fun night out with friends and family. My little idea although may have been small at the moment, took on a much larger roll that I was excited to explore and create. I am self taught in all things art. I love learning new mediums and helping others, just like me..learn the tricks and tips.

 Our Main Artist Emily Terrell (my mother) has helpled create all of our beautiful paintings on our walls.  She is self taught as well and has been painting her entire life. You can purchase any of her paintings In our studio or by visiting Her Etsy web page at https://www.etsy.com/shop/ArtistEmilyTerrell

Our number One Mission for The Art Party Place is for everyone to make a memorable piece of artwork that they can cherish for a lifetime. It doesn’t matter if your a toddler or an adult, we have something for everyone. 

I believe there Is no wrong way to create artwork. Everyone, every artist has their own techniques that work for them. It’s important to embrace those techniques to make one-of-a-kind artwork that you can cherish for years to come.

Its not always about the end product, but the experience you had. I believe it’s important to take risks..whether it’s in paintings or life. It’s the experience that helps each person grow.

I hope  every person who walks through our doors leaves with an experience they not only

remember but cherish.
