Wow! January has flown by. The studio is very busy with all kinds of creative activity. The pottery classes are full and the students are making some amazing items. If you have not seen the pottery studio, stop by any time we are open and check it out. Come by on a Monday, Tuesday, or Thursday evening and see the students in action. Melissa loves to show off the studio and the work of her students. We just ordered another 1250 lbs of clay. We also ordered more glazes components and stains to add to our collection. Expect some exciting new glazes in the future. We are doing a few more physical changes to the pottery space in the next few weeks. Expect to see a little more room and some better storage for student work. Please register well in advance for upcoming pottery classes as they fill up very quickly.
Catlin Perry is the new Drawing & Painting Instructor. Paint Night is offered on the second and fourth Thursday of the month. The classes have been full and fun! You can also book the studio for a private paint night for a Friday evening. All you need is a minimum of 8 people to make this a go. You can come into to studio and check out paintings we have here or you can work with us to choose a special painting for your group. It’s a great Girls Night Out or a Birthday Party. You are welcome to bring your own snacks and beverages. Call the studio for more details as to how this can work for you.
Catlin is also offering Fluid Painting Class on the third Thursday of the month. This amazing method makes a great piece of abstract art. Check out our FB page for samples of Fluid Paintings from the last class.
Catlin teaches Drawing Classes and Painting Classes during the week. Check out the calendar to see what is coming up in the next 2 months.
Catlin is also teaching the Thursday Kids Art Club Program.
Cindy is teaching weaving classes in the next two months. The inkle weaving class is just about over, but the Card Weaving class is coming up. She is also teaching a felting class. More information is on the calendar and the FB page.
The Kid Art Club is going along as usual. In February & March Classes will run on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays. We did try Mondays but have found that we need that day for other groups attending the studio.
We have been busy with a program called “Art Happenings for Seniors.” This takes place 2 afternoons a week from 1-2:30. We get to work with and enthusiastic creative group of seniors in Shelburne County. This has been a lot of fun for Melissa and I and for the seniors.
