Engage Arts has been open five years now, and I still feel incredibly lucky every day to have the chance to do something I love.  We have had so many fantastic artists and students come through, and it's an honor to watch them grow in their time here.  Engage teaches classes, hosts parties and private events, we are a gallery/retail space and we also do custom artwork and murals. 

I'm Melissa Thurman, the owner.  I graduated from Tyler School of Art, Temple University, with a Bachelor of Fine Arts in printmaking, but I love to work in a variety of different media and styles.  Since I was 6 years old I've been drawing & painting, always knowing I wanted to be an artist when I grew up, but that was all I had figured out.  Then I got a job teaching at a studio during college and fell in love!  ​I have been teaching more than 10 years.  Personally I like to experiment and work in a variety of styles and mediums, and I aim to bring that same exploration to the class projects.  

We're expanding quite a bit right now, adding on visiting guest artist workshops, growing our camp program, venturing into off-site parties and workshops, and so much more.  Stop in for an Artsy Afternoonto check us out, and be sure to peruse the gallery wall a bit too!

The studio classroom and parties are located on Route 73/Skippack Pike in Skippack Village near the intersection with Store Rd/Mensch Rd.  

The address for searching on maps and such is 4031 Skippack Pike, Schwenksville PA 19473.  

We're in between the Skippack Sweet Spot and Le Butler's Pantry, across from the Wine Bar and Skippack Pizza.  It's the rear building behind Berni Bridal.  You'll see the big sign out front, but won't see the actual studio building until you pull into the driveway.

There is parking located at the studio, just be careful pulling in and out as it's a narrow driveway and shared. 

Our Retail Shop is Open at the New Location

Classes will be Moving in March

Engage Art Studio has spent 5 fantastic years in Skippack Village, but we've outgrown our quaint starter location and will be moving to our new permanent home at 1005 North Gravel Pike in Schwenksville at the historic and uniquely beautiful Weldon House building!

Our Grand Opening Event will be held Saturday March 9th from 4-8 with free crafts, special paid projects, refreshments, and lots of fun!

The first floor of our new building is open! Come check out the Artisan Retail Gallery Shop featuring antiques and refinished furniture, fine art, pottery, handpainted signs, textile art, jewelry, and so much more!

The shop is open Wednesday through Sunday from 12-4, with expanded hours coming when we move full time to the building.

Classes will still be held in Skippack for now as we renovate the second floor of the building for our classroom/studio space,and anticipate moving classes over in March.  With this huge new location, we will be expanding our class schedule and can host private groups at almost any time!

And there is more to come at our fantastic new home!  In the summer we'll be working on a dedicated birthday party room as well as revamping the outdoor patio to host classes and private parties!
