Shrewsbury – After 26 years of providing professional framing services to the local community, owner Kristin Young returns to her roots as an artist and art teacher. Alongside her framing at The San Francisco Gallery, Young has created The Painted Pink Cat, a place for adults and children to develop and grow creatively through art.

“Although I very much enjoy the creativity and precision involved with custom framing, I know that I have more to offer my community,” Young said. “In the Painted Pink Cat I have made a warm and inspiring place where folks can come and enjoy the many benefits of art. For adults, we know that the creative process can be more than enjoyable and inspirational, but it can also be a great stress reliever. And for children, the creation of art has been proven to build self-confidence and inspire imagination.”

The Painted Pink Cat offers all-inclusive themed painting party packages and art classes for children and adults.

With a fine arts degree from Sonoma State University in California, Young has been painting and teaching art for over 35 years. She enjoys teaching children and adults to experience complete artistic freedom and encourages all budding artists to dig deep and unleash their inner creative voices.

The Painted Pink Cat, A Division of the San Francisco Gallery and Framing, is located at 10 SW Cutoff, Northborough. For more information, call 508-393-2266.
