The Painted Petal

The Welcome to Sanford Business of the Week is The Painted Petal, an art studio which offers kid’s art camps, events, and painting classes for aspiring artists of all ages. The Painted Petal aims to help the people who think they could never paint discover their inner artist.

The Painted Petal regularly holds classes for both children and adults, and hosts events in the community such as last week’s Valentines Day Paint Date at the Sanford Chick-fil-a. They also hold private events for special occasions such as birthday parties and public events such as the couples paint night happening later this month.

The Painted Petal was founded in the Spring of 2000 by artist and instructor Lisa Orlando. Over the course of Lisa’s career she has taught painting across the country, been a featured artist at The Southern Ideal Home Show and worked to design Home Depot’s nationwide “Do-It-Yourself” program. Through the Painted Petal, Lisa shares her passion for painting with the Sanford community.

The Painted Petal is located at 1112-C Hawkins Avenue. Visit their Facebook page to learn more about the business and take a look at their upcoming events. You can reserve your seat or inquire about having a special event at their student on their website.
