In addition to our public (step-by-step) canvas classes on Thursdays and Saturdays at 6pm, we have open studio from 1-8 on Thursday and Friday, and 11-8 on Saturday. During these hours, you can walk in with no reservations (alone or with a group) and get creative with canvas ($15-$35), clay ($25 and up), ceramics ($6 and up), mosaics ($8 and up) or door hangers ($40-$47)! Helpful instructors are there to give you TONS of help and guidance during these hours. We like to say we’re creativity waitresses… everyone is working on a different project, so we’re not creating along with you, but we’re checking on you every few minutes to make sure you’re happy!
We recommend adults starting two hours prior to the end time, and children at least one hour before to allow plenty of time to finish the paintings.)
HOW DOES IT WORK?
– Canvas and door hanger painting: Canvases and door hangers are done with acrylic paints and can be taken home at the end of the session. We can sketch a design on the canvas or hanger for you if you’d like us to! We will coach you through the steps of each painting, so you don’t need any previous artistic experience. We have $15, $25 and $35 size canvases available, and door hangers are $40 ($7 additional to to both sides) which includes all materials and instruction!
– Pottery glazing: Pottery is usually painted with glaze that must be left and fired in the kiln. (You could paint with acrylic and spray at home with a sealer for a “make and take” experience.) We have inspirational books and stencils, or we’d be happy to help you draw something on your pottery piece if needed. We usually fire once per week, and we will call you when it’s ready for pick up – no later than 2 weeks after your paint date. Pottery pricing depends on the piece you pick out, but the average price is $20-45. Pricing includes everything – there are no membership, studio, or firing fees!
– Clay – Select a project from our hand building book! We have pinch and coil pots, slab projects, and several animal sculptures to choose from! OR, create your own project… just make sure to read over our clay techniques and tips sheets we provide to make sure your project doesn’t bite the dust before getting to the kiln.
-Mosaics – Select a base, choose your favorites from our wide selection of glass tiles, and we’ll show you how to use the nippers, glue, and grout to create a beautiful mosaic!
This is great for family time because all ages are welcome – just you and your friends, kids or grandkids painting a masterpiece! If you have any questions, call 770-713-5943.
