My first time coming here, I came to an intro to drawing class taught by Rich Stolt. I enjoyed the class, very welcoming and non-intimidating for beginners. I will plan on coming back to future classes, I enjoyed the teacher and material taught. I thought it was well put together.  (Google)

We celebrated a 7th birthday here. The party was extremely well run. The teachers were great working with a large group of kids and so flexible and accommodating. It was such an enjoyable experience for kids and parents alike! (Google)

We just had our daughter’s 7th birthday party here, with 25 other first grade girls. The kids loved it. The teachers really controlled the room. And they all loved the crafts they got to go home with. We were nervous about the large number of kids but it all went incredibly well. Thanks to Maren, etc. (Google)

The Art Lab was a professional, fun and perfect choice for our zoom museum holiday party. Maren was our instructor. She was prepared and enabled those of us, frightened at the very the idea of painting anything, to have a positive experience. Maren assured us that through a medium of our own choice (watercolor, pencil, acrylics, etc.)we would each be able to achieve an interpretation of our chosen work of art. By breaking down the image into layers, colors and shapes Maren enabled everyone to have a satisfying and educational experience. Thank you ART LAB for a wonderful afternoon!! (Google)

The Art Lab has fantastic programs for Girl Scouts! We have so much fun being creative in such a great environment!(Google)

We had my 9 year old’s birthday party today at the Art Lab. We chose the mosaic frames. The girls loved it. Maren is an awesome instructor. I’d recommend this! (Facebook)

Maren was a great instructor! My very first attempt at watercolor and now I am hooked! (Facebook)

The Art Lab offers such fun classes! We have done several of the Girl Scout events and always loved them. (Facebook)

My kids took a Harry Potter camp here and loved it. They produced some really fun art pieces and had a blast doing it. I enjoyed the fact that the kids had a gallery exhibit on the last day so that parents could see what they had done over the course of the week long camp. The instructor was great with my kids. I think we will be back. (Yelp)

D and I took the 4wk class in December.  It was the first for the 3 & 4 yr olds.  The 4 wks were just right for us.  D was the youngest and his skills were not up w/others but it was a small class so the teacher had plenty of time to help.  Julie was great w/him.  It was so good for me, as one of his caregivers, to see what he was ready to learn.  I’ve since purchased a number of items that will help him develop his skills.  He loved being with the others and was soo excited to take home all the great Christmas art projects that he made! We’re looking forward to taking another class this spring.  I would say that you should try it for your little ones or for yourself.  –good to help support this new local art lab! (Yelp)

Great place for art classes in the heart of Carmel. (Google)

If you want a proper art experience and a patient art teacher, Maren’s Art Lab is your best choice. I booked a kids birthday party at her art studio and she was so patient and understanding with all my questions, comments and such. We had a 2 hour party for about 14 kids. She had a helper in as well. The studio at the Main squeeze was so spacious and well lit, Kids were placed at a safe distance on each table. She had them start out with decorating goody bags and then introduced tracing the outline, tracing each parts and then gently guiding them towards the painting the colors in. She and her helper did their best to help kids out with the tracing and outlining. She kept the kids very engaged and as the canvas dried she made an air dry clay unicorn horn with them. Of course every 6 year old wants to put various colored crystals on their unicorn horns! As everything was drying she did a small song/dance party for the kids. The goody bags were filled with candies and cute stuff. My daughter loved her birthday party and her friends enjoyed it as well. Highly recommend this place for any kind of art parties and seeing how patient of a teacher she is, if you are inclined towards art classes, she would be a great choice. (Google)
