Black Cat Art Studio opens Friday in the former Wine & Canvas space
SIOUX FALLS, SD (KELO) – A familiar art concept returns to Sioux Falls on Friday with a new name and new owner. Wine and Canvas closed last month, but on Friday night the Black Cat Art Studio officially takes over the space welcoming its first class.
“Art has such therapeutic value if you just let it happen,” said owner Jodi Baumgartner.
From a regular customer of wine and canvas, to becoming an instructor herself, Jodi Baumgartner has taken her love of teaching art to a new level, now opening her own studio.
“When they announced they were closing the doors, I and the general public were shocked. So I knew I had to continue with the art, ”Baumgartner said.
It takes over the old Wine and Canvas location near 41st Street and Euclid Avenue and sticks to the popular concept.
“I’ll take similar courses, step-by-step painting and fluid art,” Baumgartner said.
But adding its own twist to the Black Cat Art Studio.
“If you come to a wine and canvas class at this location, it’s going to be a little different for you,” Baumgartner said.
Along with the shimmering new look, Black Cat Art Studio will also feature some fun new classes.
“The last most exciting thing we’re adding is black light painting, so we’re going to turn off the lights and paint in black light,” Baumgartner said.
If you haven’t painted in a while, a blank canvas can be a bit intimidating at times, but with step-by-step instructions, Jodi says anyone can walk away from here with a masterpiece.
“We’re breaking it down step by step,” Baumgartner said. “This is modern day Bob Ross type work. You teach people to paint a picture, and anyone can do it… It just shows you what you can do, in a few hours you can paint something cool.
Black Cat Art Studio will host its first class tomorrow with a fun Halloween theme; classes are aimed at ages 16 and up, but Jodi will also be running Black Kitten classes for children of all ages.
