About the Studio

Artissima Studio is an art school and center for culture and creativity in the Pittsburgh area. It is an art studio, an event venue, an art gallery, and a boutique for local artists to display and sell their work. Our space, known lovingly as “the barn”, is a warm and welcoming environment that seeks to inspire well being, curiosity, and imagination. Check out recent student artwork and activities.

We invite you to develop your artistic skills and talents in our studio. Our goal is to provide an inspired curriculum with a focus on technical development and quality instruction led by local professional artists and educators. We offer programming and enrichment for toddlers, kids, teens, and adults. For kids, we are delighted to offer semester-long art courses, art workshops, thematic summer art camps, and fun art events like birthday parties. For adults, we offer a variety of art courses and creative workshops for all skill levels to develop technique and help enrich your artistic journey.

Kid Birthday Parties

Kid birthday parties are a great activity to celebrate your family’s special occasion. We have the cute space, all of the supplies, and a ton of paintings in our portfolio from which your child may choose. It will be the perfect art activity that will engage the kids and send them away with lots of fun memories and a special artwork to take home.

Private Art Parties

For Kids – Play Dates, Girl Scouts, Athletic Teams, etc. – we can customize a fun and lively art activity for your group.

For Adults – Lady’s Night, Birthday Party, Shower, Bachelorette Party, Team Building Event – If you would like to host a gathering, we will create a custom art making experience for your group. BYOB.

Italian Classes & Travel

We offer Italian language classes and Italian travel consultation. Why? Because the Italian language is bellissima and because Cara is an Italian travel expert and knows Italy like the back of her mano.
