They’re Satisfied!


Thank you for a fun class on Ava’s special day! It was absolutely perfect! 

Angelica Zuppke 


Bea had so much fun in your class. We’ve been really covid conscious so that was the first indoor thing we’ve done. Watching her smile and dance melted my heart and she’s still talking about it. Thank you for providing so much fun in a safe environment. 

Stacey Wiesenthal


Thank you for everything today! You were the perfect addition to our party. The kids all LOVED it!  

Rachel Taubman-Glickfeld


You really helped make this year a great year for him (and all of us).

My mom said, “that’s the kind of teacher I would want my kids to have.”

What We Offer

PLEASE NOTE: All drop in classes are weather-permitting. If it’s raining, classes will be cancelled. Updates get posted to Instagram and Facebook. Classes are held in Franklin and Birmingham, Michigan. Virtual tutoring options available nation-wide. 


Gordon’s Group (Parent/Child Art Class)

Miss Elissa will provide art project supplies for the children to work on with minimal parent assistance. The goal is process over product as the little ones explore different art mediums. Adding nature items collected around the park to projects is always encouraged. If children finish early or need to gravitate between activities, there will be books, puzzles, and open-ended toys. This is an hour long class in Franklin Park (big grassy area next to Franklin Public Library). Gordon’s Group is in honor of Miss Elissa’s son, Gordon Edward 1/12/23-1/20/23, who could’ve been a playful artist. A portion of the proceeds will be used to make “Gordon’s Goodies” bags to support  families in the Royal Oak Beaumont NICU.
