A Trip To Painted Clay Studio

Recently we took our 3rd grade students on a walking field trip to The Painted Clay Studio.

 I've heard great things about the studio since it opened, but had never been there until our trip.  

I love the old house that they turned into their studio.  Actually, before they moved in it was where Maggie Moo's vet was located until they build there new building.  What FUN the kids had!  I can't wait to go back now!  I can totally see Blake having a great time here!  I want to take Kennedy too.

It is $4.00 per painter plus the cost of whatever you choose to paint.  I love these crosses!  The frog is too funny!

How about some plates?

Cute butterfly plate!

I want to make a mosaic!  The ones they had on display were really cute!  My favorites were the ones using your own photo.  That's what I plan to do when I go back!  What a GREAT gift idea!

In every nook and cranny, you will find things to choose!  There were plates, bowls, animals, all kinds of figures, Christmas ornaments, etc. etc. etc.

One of our students said she was going to use the horse picture {above the fireplace} as her "inspiration" for the tile she made {below}.

I think she did a GREAT JOB!

What a fun, creative place for kids and adults aike!  I can't wait to visit again...and actually be one of the painters this time!!!

Colorful Blessings,
Rebecca
