New Years Wine Glasses

by Jaime Ferguson

I don’t know about you, but New Years has always been one of my favorite holidays. Although the big night out has been swapped for a crazy new tradition with my husband and boys of filling a shopping cart full of interesting foods from Jungle Jim’s, watching the latest blockbuster at the movie theatre and lighting Chinese lanterns at midnight… the moment of saying goodbye to the past and hello to the future is a pivotal moment for everyone. It’s a conclusion. A closing…but also a refreshing start.

This year I will be refreshing my creative skills. Learning about a few new mediums and techniques that I have been putting off for too many years. What about you? Have you been “meaning to do that”? It’s surprising to think it only takes a few hours and your mind will expand wonders.

We will be celebrating New Years in the Studio painting these beautiful wine glasses to have at home with our families and friends. You can join Jaime and get a head start on your New Year’s resolution in this low-stress and very fun workshop! Bring your friends, or paint one for yourself and one for your friend! Limited to ages 21+ so you can enjoy your wine while you are painting its future vessel… each participant receives two glasses to paint, all materials and tools included with Jaime’s easy-to-follow instruction! See you in the Studio!

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.

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.
