5 Year Anniversary!

It has been 5 years since we opened our doors!

My little boy was only 2-1/2 when we acquired the space – now he’s EIGHT. I opened the business for he & I and Avery is still my biggest cheerleader. I am fortunate to have been able to build something creative for myself and the community that has allowed me to keep my child by my side & raise him in such an open environment.

Averyboo Arts

In the early days (before he went to school), Avery always had something creative to do.

It hasn’t been a piece of cake, mind you. Don’t know if I would “do it all again” knowing what I know now, but this is my path and more opportunities & growth await! Avery is learning so much through this process also.

How LUCKY am I to have witnessed my child’s very first painting of our family?

I used to have a little cot upstairs for Avery to nap on, but he preferred his club house (empty cabinet).

Averyboo ArtsI want to thank my son & my husband for their unwavering support; putting up with all the craziness. And to my Mom who takes care of the plants and my Dad, AKA “Mr. Pops” who provides a small music segment in Paint, Play & Music… Thanks to my super-cool instructors Ms. Tania & Ms. Kathryn who provide fun classes for our students and thanks to all our awesome MINI ARTISTS & PARENTS who attend class &/or help out during the week. Always remember that YOU are the artist™! Peace.

Surprise Holiday Gift Workshop – Revealed

Here are some photos from our wonderful parent/child gift making workshop in December. I’ve been waiting to reveal the gifts since the final product was unknown to the participants until they unwrapped it on Christmas! The parents & kids were separated while they each made portions of the gift. I baked, glossed, & assembled everything then wrapped it all up for their holiday SURPRISE.

We are planning to have another parent/child craft night in February for Valentine’s Day – stay tuned…

Gorgeous parent/child art vase

The kids worked on painting the vases and making a mini flower.

Grownups enjoyed hot tea while making their beautiful clay flowers.

Funny all the insecure comment that were made by the adults at the beginning… their flowers came out amazing!

Assembly begins.. I took everything home & cured the vases and baked the flowers.

Final gloss coat, adhesive and we have the final product! I love how these came out. I hope everyone loved their time together and a fun surprise on Christmas ♥
