​Crooked Line Studio offers a wide variety of fun art classes and painting events for the
first-time, aspiring and experienced artist.

All classes are facilitated with a no rules-no mistakes-no judgment philosophy.  

​At Crooked Line Studio, we have fun while practicing being in the moment, pushing through self imposed limits and quieting our fears about creating art.

Come explore and experiment with various forms of self expression.  
Experience the pure joy of creating without the fear of failure.

After all, everyone can draw a crooked line!

"The only unique contribution we will ever make in this world will be born of our creativity."

Detoured but not deterred...

GREEN ROUTE:  Coming from either Broadwater or Montana Ave. take Division until you hit 2nd Ave N.  This is more of a turn than a true corner.  Once on 2nd Ave N, turn LEFT at the second street which is N 33rd.  Once you hit 3rd Ave N you can either (1) continue across the intersection and take the parking lot cut-through or

(2) turn Left and then Right into the gravel alley.
RED ROUTE: Coming from Grand Ave. pass the Division exit on your right and head to the light.  Go straight through the light and Grand Ave. will become N 32nd St.  If you are coming from the East on 6th Ave N, travel all the way until the last stop light (N 32nd St) and turn LEFT. You'll see the YMCA on your Right.  Continue through the stop light at 4th Ave N.  Take a right at the second stop light which is 3rd Ave N.  The fastest route from here is to continue on 3rd Ave N and turn Right into the gravel alley just past N 33rd St.

We all know that Montana has 2 seasons...Winter and Road Construction!
Well, starting Monday April 30th, road construction begins at our location on the corner of 4th and Division.   We mapped out alternate routes so you can still attend all of the classes during the construction.
