Party possibilities:

  • Ceramics. Make a project out of clay – you will build and glaze your piece in the 2 hour party. You will get it back in 2 weeks time after it has been fired. We will send you a list of possible projects from which to choose. Some examples are – clay candlesticks, vase, bowl, small tea lantern. small box. and ornaments.
  • Needle felting. Learn the art of dry felting to create small creations for ornaments or decorations.
  • Memory box. Bring photos, memorabilia, shells, maps, etc., to make a box or frame. We will supply the box or frame, decorative papers, glue, odds and ends to put in your box.
  • Painting. First, we send you a long list of possible subject matter or artists to choose from – examples are O’Keefe’s flowers, Klimt’s Trees, snowy landscape… With each theme, we offer as much help as you would like to draw, compose and paint an original painting. We will provide photos, paintings and music to inspire you. Supplies included.
  • Print making. We will explore texture, color and composition. Monoprinting is the most painterly of printmaking methods, combining printing, painting and drawing. The result is a single spontaneous print with a quality of light that is different than in a painting. In block printing, you carve into soft blocks to make a simple design that you print multiple times. You can also print from leaves and other textures to have a beautiful original print you can frame.

Below are examples of what you might choose for a painting party.

  1. Georgia O’Keefe’s flowers. This is a beautiful party because we bring in fresh flowers to inspire you.


2. Vincent Van Gogh’s Sunflowers. This is another beautiful party because of the live flowers.


3. Japanese bamboo and flowering tree paintings.
