Apple Tree Studio was established in May 2001 in Bedford, Kentucky by Vickie Eldridge. What started as two adult oil painting classes quickly grew to include after school children's classes, home school classes, summer art camps for children and many specialty workshops throughout the years for all ages.
We discovered when researching our student rosters that we have taught well over 500 people ages 6 years - 82 years of age in the 18 years we have been in existence.
But now the time has come to downsize. It was a difficult decision to decrease numbers by excluding the children's classes, but lifestyle changes make it necessary.
"We plan to teach special workshops throughout the year for children and possibly a 'Parent/Child' Saturday class at some point in the new year."
The studio will continue to offer adults either Oil or Watercolor each and every Thursday: one morning class; one evening class as always. We also plan to continue our Winter Workshops for Traditional Basket Weaving, Handmade Paper Quilts, and Watercolor Techniques.
The periodic workshops are perfect for a "Girls' Day Out", Family Reunions, Birthday Parties, etc. They are especially enjoyed by those who work outside the home through the week and lack the time to commit to an ongoing class.

We have always tried to do just that at Apple Tree Studio and will continue to do that in an abbreviated way!
Thank you to all who have supported
our efforts for so many years!
