Easel Town

Easel Town


Just finished Online Art with Mr. Paul. Paul teaches six fun watercolor techniques. Lessons suitable for adults or children.

As a complete beginner, I learned a lot about watercolor, how to use it and what not to do.

You don't need lots of expensive supplies. If you have a Crayola paint set, a piece of water color paper or card stock, and a couple of brushes, you're mostly there. Paul gives a complete list of supplies-most of which you already have at home- in the first lesson. Seven downloadable lessons for $5- it's a great price.

Be sure to go all the way through Lesson 7 "Finishing Touches." Paul brings everything together for an WOW! conclusion to the easy-to-follow techniques.
Hi! Have you set a date for your October sewing class?
Are there any art camps the last 2 weeks of June or July?
Thanks for challenging your students, Mr. Paul!

Easel Town is an art studio located in the heart of Memphis where process art and fine art live in harmony. Easel Town helps meet the artistic needs of young artists all over the Memphis area.

We currently offer after school art classes at The University of Memphis Campus School, elementary, middle school, and high school classes through Community Homeschool, and preschool classes at St. Lukes Day School. Private lessons are also available and my wife offers tutoring in math and reading. Private message us for more information. Our website is currently under construction, so please reach out to us by email of Facebook.

Operating as usual


Mr. Paul is turning 40 on the 27th!! We are having a birthday parade for him, and we would love for you to drive by. I know it would mean so much to him to see current and past students. Hope to see you the 27th at 6pm!

We had so much fun at camp last week and are so sad to say it will be our last for this summer. After careful consideration and watching the rising number of COVID cases in Memphis, we have made the very hard decision to close Easel Town again. With the circumstances being the way they are right now, it makes it very hard for us to continue in person camps while aligning with our vision of best practices for working with children.

We are so sorry for any inconvenience to your family and to disappoint your sweet children. As a small business that serves children, it is a very difficult time to operate. With the new guidelines and smaller class sizes, it is much harder for us to carry the overhead and still support our family. We are hopeful for the future, but in all transparency we are not sure that Easel Town in its current capacity can survive this.

Thank you for your understanding and support as we navigate this challenging season. We will be in touch soon about future plans.

Take care,

Lisa and Paul @ Easel Town

We pour everything we have into these boxes. So much cutting, drawing and paint!! But we sure miss being with our campers. There’s something so magical about watching a child’s project come to life. We are in the process of formulating our reopen plan. Classes will be small and will unfortunately feel a little different. Our name has town in it for a reason. We love being an art community. However, social distancing is crucial right now. Look for more info soon! In the meantime, stop by our shop page: www.easeltown.com/shop

Our Story

Paul and Lisa built Easel Town with the purpose of providing a creative community where process art & fine art live in harmony. Their goal is to cultivate artistic experiences for ALL ARTISTS through a variety of classes.

Draw, Paint, Sculpt: These classes focus heavily on the elements of art while exploring a variety of mediums. Artists learn techniques that gently push them outside their comfort zone and encourage them to grow as an artist.

Mini Makers & Toddler Play Groups: These classes are all about the process and not the finished product. It’s about getting your hands dirty and exploring different tools and mediums while soaking in all the joy that comes with the creative process.

School’s Out Camps: Our camps are the true experience of what it means to be an Easel Towner! There is literally something for everyone. Teachable moments are used to sneak in art techniques while mess making is encouraged and your inner crafter really shines. Friendships are formed over slime covered hands and bonds are built at the Lego table.
