The magic of Brightly is our instructors.

We are a diverse group of sparkly women with backgrounds in elementary education, art education, fine arts, children's ministry, secondary education, special education, marketing, family ministry & bomb mothering. Each instructor is trained in process art teaching principles, art education best practices, art therapy ideas, & has a desire to make sure every single person feels seen, loved, & encouraged while at our studio.
