Moxie! Fine Art Supplies and Classes in Murfreesboro

Moxie Art Studio, near the square in Murfreesboro is coming up on the anniversary of one year in business; however, many people do not know this niche store exists. I am a regular bus rider and one day, I spotted the new store, while waiting at the downtown bus transfer hub. Having a few minutes to spare, I wandered in, to check out this interesting new store.

Upon entering, I was greeted by a very friendly staff member and the owner. They were planning an upcoming art exhibit for MTSU students. The store has both a front retail area and a back room for classes and art shows. Moxie! offers a full line of fine art supplies for sale, with discounts for MTSU students, including oil paints, canvas, ink, charcoal, pastels, and more. Additionally, they offer art classes, open to the public, in a variety of mediums. My friend, who is the proprietor of Stonekeeper's in Murfreesboro, took a class in encaustic painting. She said it was an exciting class with a cost of twenty dollars and that included materials. Encaustic technique uses beeswax to build texture on the surface of artwork.

If you visit the store in person, there is a sign-up list by the cash register for their email newsletter, which includes dates of sales, shows, and classes. Here is the other basic information for the store from facebook:
