Thank You...

Thank You To everyone who has supported The Artist Within
in the last year.
Without great customers-we never could have made it through such difficult economic times.
We are doing our best to offer new and exciting programs each month to encourage and inspire creativity for both youth and adults and hope that you will also continue to tell us what you would like to see.
Our glass classes continue to be a favorite and with the addition of "walk-ins" we have seen a huge boost in the number of people trying new things.
Jeff Metzger will be adding advanced stained glass at the beginning of the new year & a lead caming class as well- watch for these.
Our after school kids classes have been alot of fun and in January we will focus on sculpture- Andrea Fox will host the 6 week session (offered at two different times)- featuring a variety of mediums and Steve Acton will be offering a Hand-building with clay class for all ages.
PMC- Precious Metal Clay, will be on the calendar as well as Journal making with Peggy McDevitt-----LOVE-LOVE-LOVE these journals !
we also have watercolors(youth & adult), acrylic portait painting for adults, and oils with Barb Sewall slated for January.
it promises to be a busy month !!
So plan to keep yourself busy & in out of the cold
Remember you can also stop in and paint-your-own-pottery
or use the studio to work on projects for a small fee !
look forward to seeing you all soon.
Happy Holidays
