It’s OCTOBER! Check out all the fun events happening at our studio this month. Click on Classes then Monthly Calendar to find your favorite class and sign up! Join us Friday, October 2nd at the Frist Friday Artwalk downtown and paint a FREE piece of pottery. We will be located in the Square between 6:00pm and 9:00pm. We will be adding some delicious items to our café menu within the next few weeks, so stay tuned for our yummy additions.
We have a great month planned in May! Our popular Mommy and Me Tea Party is back by popular demand – we will have a fancy tea party – complete with bone china, petit fours, and scones. Everyone paints a tea cup and saucer that we will have back to you just in time for Mother’s Day!
We have a new project that we are super excited about as well. Join us on May 18th to paint a GIANT cupcake door hanger. We used chalk board paint to customize it for each birthday in your house, but you can paint it however you like. They are so adorable! We will feature a new door hanger each month.
We now have MINI canvases in stock at the studio. They are $5 if you want to buy one to take home with you. If you would like to paint one in the studio they are only $8 – includes your use of the paints, our brushes, and help from our talented staff. They are 2 inches wide by 2 inches tall and they come with their own little easel. They are SUPER cute! To get things started, we have challenged our staff to each paint one and here they are! We are going to give one of our staff members a $25 gift card if their canvas is picked as the BEST. This is where we need YOUR help! Please visit our Facebook page and vote for your favorite. The voting starts NOW and runs through Sunday, March 15th. When YOU vote, like the post, or share the post, you will be entered to win a $25 Picasso’s Palette gift card! You may only vote once, but please share and like the post so we can get others to vote as well. If you want to see the little canvases in person, they are on display in the studio. Thank you! Let the voting begin!
We are now serving lunch in our café Monday through Friday from 11:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. Offerings include quiche, salads, sandwiches, and at least two soups daily. We have been updating and improving our delicious cupcake recipes and can’t wait for you to stop in and try them! Stop by to paint, eat, and INDULGE!
You could ALMOST feel a coolness in the air yesterday! It has been a long hot summer in Ocala, so we are ready for the fall to kick in! We have had so much fun preparing for our October classes and we have just posted the calendar! There is a little bit of fun for everyone! Our Ladies Night Out has become such a popular event, that we have TWO scheduled for October – one is our traditional wine glass painting, and the second one features a super cute Halloween pottery platter. Of course, you can always BYOB and refreshments will be served at both events.
The most exciting news is that we are going to start lunch service in our café! We will be serving Monday – Friday from 11 a.m. till 2 p.m. Of course, our delicious mini gourmet cupcakes will still be available all day as well – but YOU MUST try out some of our exciting new flavors! Bruce Foster and Jess McMillian have joined our staff – if you ever ate lunch (or the cupcakes!) at the Blakely House in Ocala, you already know what they can do! We are so excited to have them on our team!
We had a fabulous summer! We hope you all did too! Now that the summer is winding down and all the kiddos are back in school, we are gearing up for the holidays and we have A LOT planned! Join us for a class, or just stop in to paint pottery, fuse glass, or make a mosaic. Of course, our cupcakes are delicious and are available daily as well. Check out our calendar for a special class or let us know if you would like to schedule your own special event. We will teach your group all how to paint a canvas, work with clay, fuse glass, decorate cupcakes – you name it – we can do it! All we ask is that you have a minimum of six artists and we will gladly set up your own private event. If you can get ten or more, we will either give the organizer a free class, or we will donate 10% of the event to your charity of choice. Call us for more information! 352-789-6670.
We are full swing into our summer camp sessions. So far we have “visited” Japan, Italy, Mexico, and the good old USA! The campers have worked with wet clay, fused glass, pottery, canvas painting and so much more! There are still spaces in some of our upcoming sessions. For more information, please see the link for Summer Camp under the “Classes” tab. To register, please call the studio at 352-789-6670.
Send the kids (ages 5-11) abroad next week as we “travel” to Japan! We have an exciting week ahead of us – check out all of the wonderful projects we have planned. Come for one session, a day, a week – whatever works for your schedule and budget. We promise they will have a wonderful time!
We have been open for almost five months now and the time has flown by. Thank you Ocala for your incredible support of our studio! We want to thank you for your patience in waiting for us to have our website up and running. The studio has been so busy that we have barely had the time to work on this. Now that it is live, we promise frequent communication and updates. Let us know what you think!
We are busy gearing up for an incredible summer. We have eight weeks of camp scheduled with two projects each day. A morning session from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. and an afternoon session from 1:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. We are not repeating a single project this summer – with eight weeks, five days each week, and two sessions every day – that is eighty different projects we will be doing. Camp is for 5 to 11 years olds and seating is limited – they are filling up quickly, so call the studio if you are interested in having your child attend any session. Each week will have a different “Country” theme – starting with Japan – the journey will not just be the art we create, but we will immerse ourselves into the culture of each country. It is going to be a wonderful summer!!
