Guest Artist Clay Workshop: “Clay Vessels” Cynthia Cooper, February 15th + 22nd @10am-12 noon, $95
(with this workshop, guests can choose to participate in one or both days of the workshop. Spots are available for day 2)
Join Guest Artist Cynthia Cooper on February 15th with a second day of class on the 22nd, as she teaches you how to create a custom clay vessel from wet clay. Cynthia teaches clay hand building technique, using slabs of clay to form the walls of your vessel. Working from your design, carve and pinch the clay, adding in and cutting out design elements. Cynthia’s style is inspired by the Florida Keys and is beautiful and artistic. During the second day of class, after finishing the details of the vessel, students will be instructed in using “under glaze” to color the project. This technique is unique from the traditional “over glaze” method available everyday at The Art Studio. Reservations are required for Guest Artist workshops, so please call (305)289-9013 to reserve or ask questions. $95 includes all instruction, time, under glaze and firings. Projects ready to pick up two days after last day of class.

“Kissy Fish” – Family Watercolor Workshop: February 24th & 29th @ 11am – $18
February’s Family Watercolor Workshop, Kissy Fish, will be happening on the 24th & 29th of February. Join us to create this bright pink (or whatever color You choose) Kissy Fish!
Draw with oil pastels and then paint with watercolors during this fun “Kissy Fish” workshop . This project is fun, fast, and bright, and great for families and groups looking for activities everybody can participate in this winter season! Artists will start your fish with pencil and oil pastels, and then transition quickly into the unlimited rainbow of watercolor paints. The oil pastels resist the liquid in the water colors, keeping puddles of paint where you place them, until you add salt, creating an immediate reaction of colors. This leads to a very bright art piece. Reservations are required and class size is limited to 12. Cost is $18. Call 305-289-9013 for your spot! Projects are ready to take home from the class! (Trigger Fish coming in early March!)
