As you walk inside Flydragon Design Art Studio at 1822 E. 16th St in Cheyenne, you see the sign, “Release your inner chaos”. Owner Christina Blooding offers a creative oasis from the daily grind through her guided painting and pottery classes. Artistic talent is not a requirement. Even if you can only draw stick figures, Christina will guide you through the creative process to paint a picture or throw a piece of pottery. Painting on canvas with acrylic paints or kneading clay is a fun way to remove the stresses of the day.
Christina desires to create a fun, relaxing place for people to express their creativity, regardless of their artistic skills. The creative and fun venue is ideal for private parties, team building, birthdays, men’s and women’s or couples nights out, and family reunions. Wine is permitted if 21 years of age.
Christina worked with Wyoming Entrepreneur Small Business Development Center to develop her business plan and guide her through the business startup process. She also utilized the services of the Market Research Center to explore the trends and potential market in Cheyenne and surrounding region.
“We would not have had the courage to start this business without the help of the Small Business Development Center. John Privette counseled my husband, Aaron, and I and gave us the necessary tools to create an effective business plan, and develop our financial spreadsheet so we could see if we even had an idea that could be successful. We are grateful our state provides this free service and especially thankful to John for his continued support and expertise.”
