We create personalized art and craft experiences for groups. We supply all of the tools and materials along with hands-on instruction to ensure participants leave with a finished project and a positive experience. Our events are about being social, creative (even if you don’t think you are artistic), and having fun!

art program series for seniors

Paint, Paper, Scissors specializes in senior living communities. The Art Program Series presents in a short, simple format. These events take 2 hours or less. We work with activity directors and life enrichment program directors to create a comfortable, rewarding experience for residents in all housing levels.


We love working with kids! They like us too. Our no-fail approach, gentle instruction, and creative flexibility allows each participant to have a terrific art experience. Paint, Paper, Scissors offers programs through Shorewood Park & Rec, Chaska Park & Rec, Girl Scout troops, other organizations, and private parties.


These classic events are designed for our guests to have a more in-depth experience. They include more detailed projects and techniques in a 2-hour format. Classic events are suitable for seniors, private parties, corporate events, family gatherings, girl’s night out, wedding showers, and more!

This was a wonderful experience. It was very well organized and presented sequentially so we weren’t overwhelmed by the idea of creating an original landscape. I’m pleased with my artwork and enjoyed the process very much!
