New & Improved Open Studio!

Here is a nice little article about The Importance of Art in Children’s Cognitive, Social and Emotional Development. Now let me tell you a little about Open Studio at Averyboo Arts…

Summer is the perfect time to come in for Open Studio. These are limited hours where you pay only $10 p/hr to use almost anything in the studio. From open art supplies & easels to blocks & creative play, kids 2-8 will have plenty of ways to exercise their imaginations and express themselves. Our studio is air conditioned and a great place to meet up with friends for an indoor playdate or have some unplugged time alone.

Open Studio now comes with an optional craft each week as well as face painting (cheek only). And, grownups, you can enjoy free WiFi and a complementary glass of ice tea.

We also have an online booking system so you don’t have to call for an appointment! Hope to see you soon ❤

A small group of boys came in for Open Studio and made NINJA’s! These fierce little guys were made with corks, tape & match sticks. Cool, eh?

Favorite Photo Friday: My Little Leprechaun

This is my silly little boy playing at the studio 3 years ago on St. Patty’s Day.
I recently celebrated my fourth year here & looking at this picture made me reflect on how great it was to have my son at my side while building this business from the ground up. It’s been challenging, but Avery & I have had so much fun together!

December

The studio was busy during the month of December. Classes made holiday themed art, kids had gift-making in mind during Open Studio and we also participated in a couple community events. Here are a few pictures I have to share…

class: Beginning Art (Age 6.5-9)
project: Glitter Winter Paintings (click image for large photo)

Averyboo Arts

Students learned about abstract landscapes, composition, planning a design, monochromatic color, tints/shades; used acrylic paints, oil pens & glitter on 9x12 canvas board. This project took 3 sessions to complete.

what: Open Studio Re-cap
I usually don’t take many photos during Open Studio, but I snapped a few this month…

Averyboo Arts

Gingerbread Lollipops, Free Card Swap, open-ended art & gift making, natural ornaments, recycled snowmen & more.

class: Little Picasso’s (Age 4-6 years)
project: Poinsettia Collage

Averyboo Arts

Students used collage technique to make poinsettia pictures. Talked about how flower petals radiate from the center, worked on fine motor skills.

what: First Fridays Community Art Walk

Averyboo Arts

The Girl Scouts had a homemade bake sale at the studio for December First Fridays. "Bixby Belle" stopped in with candy canes while the kiddos made holiday canvases.

St. Patty’s Day

Here’s all the green goodness that took place for St. Patrick’s Day this year… (click photos for larger pic)

Class: Pee Wee Art (Age 2-3)
Kids learned about color mixing, threading, and as always, exercised those little fine motor muscles while sponging, using small brushes & markers.

Green necklaces and color mixing shamrocks. Neil was also excited to show us on the easel that Y+B=G!

class: Little Picasso’s (Available T/TH/SA, age 4-6)
All Picasso classes this week are working on Paper Sculptures; however, the TH class was the only one making them with shades of GREEN. We used an amusement park as our inspiration and observed photos of rides while learning how to manipulate a practice strip of paper. Kids learned how to make circles, twists, loops, coils, hills, and accordian folds before starting their project. Then I let them do their thing…

Little Picasso's at Averyboo Arts

Using 3 shades of green + brown strips of paper, kids created their own amusement parks.

class: Beginning Art (Age 6-9)
Students learned how to draw a 3-leaf clover & watercolor techniques. We talked about “small scale”,  how to use” light pressure” while using our colored pencils, and how to “dilute” our paint to make a new shade of green. They also learned how to control the watercolors to avoid bleeding.

Sometimes a project seems simple at the start, but as the kids discovered, this project was a great skill building experience.

The background color also had a fine, gold glitter added to it. These came out really pretty 🙂

Open Studio
My sis-in-law came in with the family (well, some of the family, she has 9 kids!). She lives in AZ, so it was the first time she had seen the studio. She’s the one that has generously provided me with many of the fun costumes we have at Averyboo.
