Art Craft Café | Art School
“Be inspired, get educated, be creative, and shop local. These are the amazing attributes of the Art Craft Cafe that you can experience every day.”
Artcraftcafé Foundation is a non-profit organization formed to introduce creative and environmental connections that will contribute to the sustainable future of St. Maarten – St. Martin.
Artist Tess Verheij founded the ArtCraftCafe as a place to teach, inspire, and highlight art. Tess opened her first Art Craft Café in London, England, before moving to the Caribbean.
The space in Philipsburg consists of an art gallery, an art school, and the waste factory. The Art School focuses on the community and teaching art.
And Tess is a great teacher and supporter of the local economy. She deserves your support!
The school offers classes and sessions for locals and tourists alike, including every age and skill level. The art classes vary from simple crafts to elaborate artistic paintings on canvas.
Sip and Paint have become a top-rated evening event, as well as team-building opportunities, date nights, birthday parties, school trips and private classes.
Local schools take part in projects that include upcycling materials to create functional creations such as birdhouses and planters.
There is something for everyone, get involved, and be inspired.

Visited and spoke to Tess for our second stay on SXM. She inspired me greatly with her passion and energy during our last visit that I picked up painting again. Showed her some of my new creations and loved her reaction. We supported her great cause with the new Waste Factory by buying some pieces. Colorful art and beautiful people!
