Mindy Flexer Art School
Welcome!! Read on for more about who we are and what we do here.
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.
Start the new year off right with the

This is a great opportunity for children to enjoy and explore a variety of art forms, and for tween and teens to work on their art school portfolios or other independent projects.
You can still jump into Fall 2018 art classes, and now you can register for Winter and Spring 2019 classes, too!
You are invited to a NEW Saturday morning art class for teens and adults, 10:45 to 12:15, starting in January.
This class offers a wonderful chance to be part of team of artists cheering each other on, as each person pursue's their own interests and vision.
In addition, it offers an opportunity to be a role model for the children who will be attending the 9:00 to 10:30 morning class that meets directly before. Participants in the 10:45 class are invited to come early to meet and mentor these children. Come make you own art and make a difference for someone younger than you! You can see more information here.
You can work on a portfolio for Creative and Performing Arts High School, or any other school, in any of these classes.
My solo show,
at EAT (Everyone at the Table) Cafe, a nonprofit, pay-what-you-can café, has come down, but you can still get a painting!
In keeping with EAT Café’s pay-what-you-can model, you can get a painting for half price, for one-and-a-half times the price, or anywhere in between,. You can check out the paintings online here.
STAY TUNED FOR MORE CHANCES TO MAKE THINGS FOR CLIMATE JUSTICE!
