How We Came To Be...
Our studio was first born in the early spring of 2007. Founded by three artists who believed in the transformative power of art, it's prime intent was to inspire, motivate, educate and encourage people of all ages and abilities to create art in all forms.
We opened our gallery/studio in Mashpee Commons at the site of what is now Cup Cake Charlies under the name Artists For The Arts. We showed art, taught classes, hosted music events and created a community of artists & students. We offered our first 'Paint Party' at that time in 2007 under the name 'Masterpiece Workshop'!
In 2009 we moved our location across from Woodruffs Art Center and we became Three Fish & a Ram Art Center.
Continuing to bring creativity & art to our community hosting art shows, classes, open mic nights and mentoring local students.
In 2012 we became The Cape Cod Art Bar, turning our 'Masterpiece Workshop' into the ever popular Paint Parties!
Along came 2020 and once a again we found ourselves in the midst of change. As the fad of paint parties changed along with Covid 19 space regulations we decided to once again.... transform ourselves! We have re-designed our studio & added
new services and we look forward to new creative endeavors!
As always, our mission stays true to our original intent... to inspire and encourage people of all ages & abilities to express themselves creatively through a variety of mediums and channels.
We warmly invite you to stop by, browse the gallery, take a class and learn more about the power of creating!
