Q: How long have you been around?

A: We started our business in April of 2015. We did private parties and eventually leased a small studio in July of 2015 and moved to our current location in September of 2016.

Q: What do you offer the community?

A: We offer Philipsburg and the surrounding communities a recreational alternative that keeps them in town and eliminates the need to travel elsewhere to find something fun to do for ladies night out, creative fun with your kids, developing a hobby and even couples events — right here in downtown Philipsburg.

Q: What are your top sellers?

A: Our top sellers would be our Wednesday night Art Zone Kids classes, wood craft events and our Fire Zone paint-your-own pottery studio.

Q: What’s the best thing about your location?

A: We have a fantastic location right in the heart of downtown Philipsburg on the main shopping street. We have incredible visibility and foot traffic, which we credit also to our large bright windows that can be seen for many blocks.

Q: What is the best way to “play” in Centre County?

A: The best way to play in Centre County is to find a friend or family member and do something relaxing that helps you recharge. We have a wall that says, “Art washes away the dust of everyday life.” We think that painting and creating together provides our customers an opportunity to just that right here in Philipsburg.
