What We Do

Art of the Valley is a great place to reserve a painting party for adults, churches, corporate events, and other organizations. We offer special group rates and discounts.  Our studio can also be reserved for children's birthday parties.   Art of the Valley provides art instruction for children and adults of all ages.  You can come in during one of our Open Paint days (where you can paint anything you'd like without an appointment) and receive one-on-one instruction or attend a class and receive group instruction.  Here at Art of the Valley we are happy to assist you as much or as little as you need us to during your creation process.  We want our customers to walk away happy with their ready to hang art pieces.  In addition to art instruction, we design custom paintings and murals of various artistic styles.  

Our Story

Art of the Valley purchased Paint with Lane from Lane McKinley in July of 2017.  Lane provided a great service to our community with her business and art for many years.  Many of her techniques, ideas, and processes have been gratefully adopted by Art of the Valley.  Over time we have integrated new concepts, ideas, and techniques into the business to suit the changing needs and desires of our community.  In August 2018, we moved from the City Mall location to a prime location in downtown Russellville.  At our new location, we enjoy participating in all of the events and festivities that downtown has to offer.
