Went here for a bachelorette party. It was so fun! The garden is beautiful. Painting with the group was super fun and the owners were very helpful. I had so much fun I went back with my mom a few weeks later.

Relaxing and fun
Jun 2021 • Family
We had a great time. Plenty of projects to select from. It was a nice way to spend the afternoon. You can select painting, mosaic, wood, glass “melting”, beading projects (I’m sure I’m forgetting some). Everyone was helpful and the place is full of completed items for those of us who need visual examples.

Oh my goodness I don't know where to start. This is an Amazing place with such sweet owners. I took my friend there as part of her birthday gift and we truly enjoyed every minute there!! We will definitely go back again.

Disappointing
Jun 2021 • Couples
I assume the folks running it were the owners. They both talked down to us. We are novices and aren't going to know everything. They should expect that and not male us feel dumb.

It wasn't any better when we went to pick up our projects. They didn't greet us. Just said it's over there. When we asked about wrapping it to take home, we were on our own. Certainly we're capable of wrapping it ourselves. But it would've been nice for them to be engaging. I wouldn't go back again or recommend it to my friends.

Fun, Relaxing and SAFE!
Jul 2020
I've made it a tradition to come here during my annual vacation to the Saugatuck area. The atmosphere is fun, the staff is very nice and helpful, there are so many project options and the selection is huge. The hardest part is picking a project. During my most recent trip to MI, I was worried we wouldn't be able to get out and enjoy activities at local businesses. How the Art Barn is addressing COVID-19 and managing safety precautions is very impressive, thorough and I felt completely safe. Can't wait to come back next year!

I took 2 of my sons, ages 14 and 10, for a surprise visit to try something new. We had a great time! It was not crowded (plenty of space to comfortably work on your art), and the colorful atmosphere was so fun. The owners were so helpful in explaining the processes. We can’t wait to return!

We stopped by in a very busy Saturday afternoon. Plenty of tables outdoors and indoors with people working on projects. Once inside we were approx you a man woh asked us if we had ever been to the Art Barn before. We stated we hadn’t and he explained how things worked. Ceramics, glass fusion, mosaics, beads for jewelry making. This place had it all. Wonderful experience. What a gem.

Something for everyone!
Aug 2019
Three generations of our family had a wonderful afternoon at the Art Barn. Glass projects, ceramic projects and mosaics were the activities we chose and everyone had a great time. When our projects were finished, we left them to be fired and they were ready for pick up the next day or two. So allow a day or two for projects to be ready, however they can mail them to you. When we picked them up, it was like Christmas as we saw our finished products that were now a keepsake of our trip. You may find out you have a talent for Mosiacs and make a tray - or realize you do not. So much fun!

Friendly staff

We stopped on a Saturday and loved chatting with the man at the paint station. He was so sweet to our little ones, and we enjoyed chatting with him as much as we did painting. Our 3 year old had fun and so did we. The bathroom is very clean, there is plenty of parking and lots of ceramics to choice from such as Llamas, unicorns, sea creatures, ornaments, mugs, MI shape, piggy paints, etc. The outside is pretty as well, lots of flowers.
