Workshops

 

LUSHES & BRUSHES 

For adults-only, (or younger aged accompanied by an adult) this is one of our most popular workshops! Come alone, bring a pal or bring a crowd to paint a masterpiece of your very own in one evening.  This painting workshop was designed for non-artists dipping their toes into painting for the first time or just about anyone interested in an evening of laid back, creative fun. Past subject matter has included everything from delicate flowers to freighters.

Participants are walked through a different painting each time the workshop is held, so no matter how many times you enroll, you’ll never repeat projects. We have many “frequent flyer” students for this fun evening.

Instructors prep all canvases with a sketched image. Students follow instructors step-by-step to create a completed painting. Students will get a feel for working with acrylic paints, blending, shading, and more! BYOB

This is a great beginning step for anyone considering taking a multi-session painting class or just wants to have a night of FUN!

(Under 21 can join if accompanied by an adult, PLEASE NOTIFY FRONT DESK)

Lushes workshops require a 3 day advance notice and signup PLEASE!

NIGHT TIME WHEEL THROWING THURSDAYthursday pottery1979762_10152141328831378_5965362184361821953_n

Geared toward the absolute beginner and potters that want a refresher on basic skills. We cover all the fundamentals of pottery making (throwing) from wedging clay to glazing and firing.

We will teach you everything you need to learn to make a pot on the wheel, AND… you’ll also gain the many incidental stress-relieving benefits of creating with clay. The gentle turning of the wheel, the centering of the clay and the single-minded focus needed to create pottery brings the potter into a calm, centered place themselves. It’s a terrific way to end a stressful day or start a new adventure.
