Between work and school, many of us can get tired of the same daily routine. Don't worry – apartments in Gainesville are close to several different venues that offer recreational classes for a variety of creative interests. Have you always wanted to try your hand at pottery but could never find a place nearby? Perhaps you'd love to know to create your own colorful mosaic art piece. Read below to discover all your creative options in Gainesville and start adding some funky décor to your new place!

Aptly named, Do Art in Gainesville offers paint your own pottery, canvas, mosaics and a variety of art classes for people with all levels of experience. If you have an interested friend or family member, the studio offers 2-for-1 deals every Wednesday. You can even grab your significant other and join a “Couples Canvas” class! The studio's class fees cover everything you need to complete your project so you won't have to worry about finding the right supplies. If you get a sudden urge for art during the week, you can simply hop on over and join a class without a reservation as long as you have less than 8 people with you. One of your new Gainesville apartments is just begging to be decorated with pottery, mosaics, and other beautiful creations handmade by you! Do Art is also an excellent place to host get-togethers and parties for any occasion. They even have classes specifically geared towards children.

More interested in melody instead of pottery? Apartments in Gainesville are close to music instructors and academies that offer lessons in a variety of instruments. Those looking to improve their singing can easily find a vocal coach as well! One example is the Academy of Music and Art, combined in the same building with the Gainesville Guitar Academy. The academy, voted best school of music and art in the area, has over 20 teachers with 32 years of experience teaching over 10,000 successful students. Whether you're completely new to music or a master at your instrument, this place has many opportunities for learning and improvement. If you're shy or feel more comfortable with one-on-one teaching, the academy offers private lessons (or smaller classes, if you prefer) for most musical and art interests. Don't forget to check out their drawing and painting classes as well!

When you move into one of the spacious apartments in Gainesville and can't stand to be surrounded by bare walls, you might be more motivated to sign up for one of these great creative classes offered in your new town. If you're looking for something creative but also practical, you can also visit A-1 Sewing for classes like “Learn to Hem Your Pants” and “Beginner Garment Sewing.” Jason Straw Woodworking offers some unique personalized classes as well, such as “Learn to Build Krenovian Saw Horses” and “Sawn Veneer.” Imagine how impressed your visitors will be while they marvel at all your new creations. We just hope you can find the time to check out all these delightful classes!
