My husband and I went to the Art Barn yesterday as part of our anniversary celebration. We spent a few hours here creating a mosaic masterpiece. We can't wait to go back and take our teenage boys. It would be a great place to spend an afternoon with the girls, significant other or family (even young children).

Our family spent two separate days at the Art Barn - crafting to our hearts content. Some made mosaic projects, some ceramics and others melted glass projects. All levels are treated wonderfully by the owners and we wish we lived closer!

We took 3 kids, ranging in age from 8 to 14, and they all had a blast! There's so many different projects to do - you can spend a lot or a little, both money and time! The staff was extremely helpful and friendly. Definitely fun for all ages, can't wait to go again!

I first off, liked the location of the Express Yourself Art Barn, it was farther away from town, so you get to drive through the countryside and see beautiful sites. There wasn't a lot of instruction when you walk in and it can get a little crowded. You are able to choose from a variety of different ceramics and other... More

Thank you for sharing your experience in The Art Barn! I'm happy that you and your brother had a great time. And you are right, sometimes when it is super busy it is hard for us to greet each customer when they arrive. I'll do my best to make that part of the Art Barn experience better in the future....
