It’s not yet officially summer, but we’re getting close, and there are already plenty of bursts and blooms to inspire our creative minds this month! Great for parents and kids, our two-session Glass Mosaics class starts June 15 and leaves you with a finished piece June 22. If jewelry is more your thing, create a custom pendant or ring and earrings in our Creative Adornments class June 25.

Our art and pottery sessions start up again in July. Both Clay Handbuilding with Marnie Michels and Raku Altered Forms with Dee Santorini start July 8. Beginning Wheel Thrown Pottery begins July 9. Wade in the Water, our watercolor class for all levels, begins July 2. Drawing for the Timid begins July 10. You can also Discover Oil Painting and/or Rediscover Acrylic Painting July 9.

If you’d like to get a whole lot of learning in on one day, come to our Learning From Our Mistakes Watercolor Workshop from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., June 14. At the end of this month, we invite area clay artists to bring two bisque-fired pieces to our Community Raku Firing June 29.
