About Us

Are you looking for creative and fun things to do? 

Hi, I’m Chrissy White, the Inspiration Director here at Play Arts Studios.

I just wanted to take a quick minute to show and tell you a little about our products. Here at Play Arts Studios, we get that not everyone may be an artist, but we know everyone loves to create.

We thought long and hard about how we can help take away some of those stresses, worries, and anxieties about painting. How we could help you create something completely personal and that you can be proud of?

So we created the Play Arts Studios’ No-Fail, Paint-By-Shape Method for painting pet portraits. It’s kind of like paint-by-numbers — but much easier. (And now just in time for Mother’s Day, we’d like to introduce our “Paint My Portrait” Art Kit to go with you’re “Paint My Pet’s Portrait” Art Kit ;)

Each Portrait Art Kit is custom and completely unique because we take your photo and convert it into easy to paint shapes. You then pick your colors to paint. We put everything you need for the project into your art kit and mail it straight to your door.

We also offer online one-on-one classes and group workshops for those of you who would like to make it an “Experience.”

Our Art kits come in two sizes 9x12 and 11x14. Everything you see here is included in our standard art kit; the prepped canvas panel, the stand, 2 brushes (1 detail, 1 flat), and your 4 paint colors. All you’ll need is a paper towel and a cup of water to rinse the brushes.

If you enjoyed working on your Paint My Photo Arts or Art Class by Play Arts Studios, the best way to thank us is to share it with your friends ... and with us on our social media pages @PlayArtsStudios or by tagging us with #PlayArtsStudios. You can find us online on Facebook, Instagram & Pinterest.

If you have questions or want to send us some love. You can reach us at info@playartsstdios.com.

Thanks for visiting us and for watching.
