Studio 25 Art Creations
5 Nippersink Blvd.
Fox Lake, IL 60041
Studio 25 Art Creations, Inc. was founded by Amanda Munsen and started to develop in May of 2016. Amanda is no stranger to this area. She grew up in the Fox Lake community since the age of 4 and has always loved it. Always getting involved in school and community events, it only made sense to come back to Fox Lake to start her business.
With the help of our Studio 25 ‘team’ we started at-home paint parties throughout the 2016 summer and got involved in various events with Fox Lake. The Studio 25 team collaborated with the Village of Fox Lake, and with the help of the Studio Team, created the villages first Community Art Mosaic. The business grew rapidly, which led us to take a big step, finding a permanent location. We finally found the perfect building and after a lot of hard work prepping the building, we opened our doors on November 5, 2016.
We currently have paint classes for ages 8+. Within these classes, our artists come into a class and leave with a completed painting ready for display! In the future we hope to expand our classes to introduce different media, as well as develop long-term art sessions and workshops. We also provide open art studio space, and accommodate private parties for all occasions.
Studio 25 Art Creations cannot thank the Fox Lake Village enough for all of the support they have showed us. The positive feedback and excitement from our community has only fueled our passion more for this company. We hope to be with you all for years to come and hope to see you around at the studio soon!
