Painting with Passion

Little Golden Fox offers fun
‘Art on Vine’ painting classes

The wine night classes are popular with budding artists

(October 2015) – The Art on Vine workshops have been highly popular at The Little Golden Fox, 602 W. Main St., in Madison, Ind. The wine night workshops are on the first and third Thursday of each month at 6:30 p.m. and are open to all ages and abilities.
Owner Cara Fox also teaches milk painting and sewing, and offers children’s craft classes.
“We typically have acrylic painting, and the classes can be scheduled any night of the week,” Fox said.

The fee is $35 at the door, and it is first-come, first-serve due to the limited space. Those interested in taking a class are urged to call or visit via Facebook to reserve a spot. The children’s craft classes are held from 1-2:30 p.m. Sundays. The fee is $15. Snacks and drinks are provided for the classes as are all the paints and supplies.
“We do a lot of kid birthday parties and other events like bachelorette parties and reunions,” said Fox.
Before opening her shop, Fox made little girls’ dresses, which she sold from home. This eventually led to a lot of business, and when she could not keep up with the demand, she decided to open her own shop on Main Street.
“My shop is really a jack-of-all-trades,” She said. “We have art and supplies but also consignment or vintage items. I go to different shows to see what the trends are, and then I bring it back Madison.”

Cara Fox opened The Little Golden Fox in 2011. She moved to a larger location in 2014 and now is ready to expand once again at her current location.

Fox said she likes to take antique pieces and made them pretty again. She then learned how to milk paint and became certified to teach others how to milk paint in one of her classes.
“Any thing craft or art biased found on Pintrest or Etsy, we can probably make in an art class,” said Fox.
The Little Golden Fox outgrew its original building after about 21/2 years. So Fox relocated to her current building, which used to be a brewery converted into a warehouse. The business is now in its fourth year of operation.
“I wanted a creative outlet, and I loved to sell my stuff and interact with other people,” said Fox.
Rhonda Snyder is one of the art instructions for the Art on Main classes along with Fox and Whitney Ernst. Snyder’s background is in stained glass mosaic art and painting. She has been doing the art classes at The Little Golden Fox for more than two years.
“Our classes are a stress-free zone, and we love first time painters,” Snyder said, “It is lots of fun because anyone can do it thanks to our step by step instructions. I want to encourage everyone to come in and get past the fear of trying to paint or do art because it really is just so much fun.”
The Little Golden Fox in January 2014 received the Madison Area Chamber of Commerce’s annual Business Citizenship Award for its contribution to the community.
