Paint ‘N Sip Parties, Art Classes & More!

Hi folks!

My name is Lesley Shakespeare-Brogan and I own Hope In Art Studio, located at 144 Mill St, Canandaigua NY.  I have been teaching art/painting lessons for 30 years and am very excited to open up this new location.

Anyone can be an artist. Having the tools, courage to be creative, and learning the right techniques is the key. This is a comfortable non-threatening space where you can explore your own creativity and enhance your self expression.

Below are the various classes available at my studio. All classes (except Paint N’ Sip) are a six week, once-a-week package. A six week package is $150 and all materials are included for first time students.

Please click the links above for more information, and feel free to call/text me at 585-727-4574 or email at for questions/inquiries at any time!
