Still not sure? Check out this little tidbit from their website:

“At Artista we practice communicating visually while expanding our definition of art, which in turn helps us explore our own creativity. Our instructors nurture a safe haven for this process, so our classes are encouraging, free from judgment, and punctuated with Chardonnay breaks. Tapping into our inner resources, we can begin to explore and discover.”
