WHO WE ARE
Founded in 2011, Blue Ice Studio has grown into a community that fosters creativity in a friendly, fun environment that encourages and inspires artistic growth. Owner and artist, Ashley Lucas, believes everyone has an artist inside of them and wants to help you find your own unique artistic voice. She also believes art is a powerful form of self expression and point of connection between people. She strives to bring that to her local communities.
Ashley has experience both in the art studio and in the classroom. This means that you not only get a teacher with great art technique, but great teaching technique as well. Ashley has earned a double Bachelor's degree in Studio Art and Art Education from Southwest Minnesota State University. Over the years she has taught art classes and creative events to many area schools, community education programs, area businesses, non-profits, city celebrations, public library programming, and private parties. She is also working on completing a set of outdoor murals in Lake Lillian, MN.
Want to get involved? Peek at our event calendar and join a community art class, hold a private party, browse the online art shop, or hire Ashley to paint a mural or commissioned piece.
Studio and artist rental for private parties and educational programs are also available upon request with prior reservation. Please don't hesitate to get in touch to learn more about the studio's offerings, events, classes, and artwork for sale. Contact Ashley with any of your creative needs!
WHAT WE ENVISION
Bringing Artists Together
At Blue Ice Studio, our mission is to create a safe, communal space for all kinds of artists - from beginners to professionals - to come together and express their creative sides in a supportive environment. We believe in unlocking the creative within each and every one of us, and offer a wide range of classes for all students. Whether you’re a professional looking for new inspiration, a brand new student hoping to learn a thing or two about art, or if you’re simply interested in picking up a new hobby, Blue Ice Studio is here to welcome you into the fold.
If you love our classes and events please consider supporting the studio. I love teaching and sharing art with the community and often this is a project of love. I pour every bit of my heart into this endeavor to bring art to my local community. Every little bit of support goes a long way!
Thank you so much for supporting local art and allowing me to share my passion.
