Mindy Flexer Art School
Welcome!! Read on for more about who we are and what we do here.
THERE WILL BE NO ART CLASSES ON WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 20 BECAUSE OF INCLEMENT WEATHER. I’ll miss everyone, and look forward to seeing you all next week. Enjoy your snow day and make some art!!
I'm Mindy Flexer, and I created this school in my loft to give all kinds of people of all ages a place to come together and make art. As a working artist in Germantown, I'm delighted to be able to invite people into my studio to share the journey with me!
My studio is an inclusive place where every person is cherished and nurtured. It is a base camp: a safe home, beautiful and meaningful in itself, from which to launch other expeditions. Within and beyond the studio, it is good to have big dreams and to take on big challenges: creating art, creating community, and creating a more just world together.

STAY TUNED FOR MORE CHANCES TO MAKE THINGS FOR CLIMATE JUSTICE!
I'm looking forward to hosing more make-ins for an ongoing campaign demanding that PECO convert to 20% local solar by 2025.
