The Art Lounge



The Art Lounge is owned and operated by Trayc Claybrook and Karin Wisman.

Trayc and Karin have been creating in downtown Garland since 2019. Trayc is a professor of art for the Dallas College system and Karin is a life long crafter and is expanding her art skills. We welcome and love working with students at all skill levels.

To see what we have been up to see our Facebook page:

We love watching the creative process emerge in our students. The aha moments, the relaxing into it moments, the I can not wait to come back and do more moments. We create along side our students and enjoy the friendship and trust building process as well.
