Teen Drawing Club

TEEN DRAWING students have been growing each of their individual skills by leaps and bounds!  Whether interested in the popular Manga style or realism, all the students are enjoying improving the ability to draw the human figure.  

The young artists have been drawing live models in 5 minutes!  A task that professional artists can find intimidating. These young artists relish the chance to give themselves such a fun challenge. Next we will begin using their new skills to create a series, graphic novel, or comic.  

We're extremely proud of their creativity and dedication that has them constantly growing!

RAKU! Watch how it works!

Pottery has multiple processes - including how to be fired. In our adult advanced wheel pottery class and multiple workshops held throughout the year, students can participate in this thrilling firing process at the Studio. 

This is an educational video that shares the process of pulling pottery in a raku firing as it is taught at Decoy Art Studio.

Free Sketching

Experiencing a dry spell of creativity or trying to work out an idea? If you are a writer, you may be familiar with a prewriting technique called free writing. For a set period of time you continuously write without regard to the topic, and it could end up being the words, “I don’t know what to write.” over and over again on the page. Think of it as exercising your brain, and you can also use this technique with sketching.

New Art Stations & Instructor for Parent & Child Class

Our Parent & Child Art Class has been a staple for child development and a creative bonding experience for toddlers 2 -4 years of age in the Studio. This time spent with their parent, grandparent or caregiver helps them practice many of the building blocks needed to learn creativity and appreciate visual aesthetics.

We are very excited to incorporate art stations into our class. This allows young artists to discover through interactive, all-sensory learning. Stations like seek & find shapes, water-play color mixing, bubble walking paths with paint and wet clay to dig  into. Practicing fine motor skills, touch, color and shape recognition, decision making and much more. Our new art stations will be rotated weekly with a hands on craft to take home.

Although we will be switching out the art stations weekly and adding in new stations as they become available, you can view and download the take-home project list through the link on our registration page. Also, our lovely Tiffany Clark is running the series teaching both the Tuesday and Saturday morning sessions. She is giddy with fun for the children!

What’s even better? No registration is needed! Just come in a few minutes before class to sign in. That is pretty helpful on those days the little one (or maybe yourself!) are not quite ready for all the excitement. Class fee is per child, $12 per class, or opt for the 4 class pass for $42 which you have the flexibility to use over a 6 month time and can swap between the Tuesday or Saturday session.
