About Arts Aloft, LLC
Arts Aloft is a company that is based on instructional fun. We believe that a creative atmosphere is made up through an environment from people getting together to enjoy each other. With this in mind we provide a canvas, an easel, brushes, paint, apron, artistic inspiration, our very own server, an appetizer or dessert for you to enjoy, and at the end of the night, WE even clean up the mess!

Whether it is a first date, a birthday party, a special anniversary night out, Mother's Day, Father's Day, a get-together for coworkers, a bridal party meet-and-greet, an evening with a new or old friend, or a way to meet people with similar interests, our classes are sure to please!

Artist, David Youngren has been involved in art and design ever since he was a young boy growing up just a few blocks from downtown Hastings.

Besides acrylic painting, David also enjoys watercolor and pen and ink, fly fishing, taking pictures, canoeing and gardening.
