The Art Diner was created by Ros Gourvitz in 2016 after she saw a need for more opportunities for children to express their creativity in her child’s school. Knowing the importance of finding creative outlets, Ros became driven to help promote the artistic growth in more people throughout the community. The Art Diner grew from this passion, and it provides participants with everything they need to make creative discoveries and develop their creative confidence in the comfort and convenience of their own home or school. The mission of the Art Diner is to find the inner artist in each and every person while connecting with friends and family.
