OpenI hear people saying, “When this is over we’ll all be enjoying restaurants again, full shelves again, socializing again.” But unless it is over soon that will NOT be the case. The landscape of our community will not look the same as it did before this started. Many small businesses that you have enjoyed over the years won’t make it through months of closure and no sales. Think about that! The businesses that you go to every time your kid needs a donation for their school, for their ball teams or scouts…the businesses you go to for fundraisers for your organizations…those small businesses that give to you every time you ask are at risk now. They’ll be gone and all that will be left will be the large stores most of which have “policies” that don’t allow them to donate locally. What will we do then? Keep in mind our small businesses that need you now as you needed them when you asked for help. Make a real effort to help them. Buy a gift certificate. Pre-pay for classes to come. Buy art. Do what you can to keep small business alive. It’s the heartbeat of our community. Please don’t let it die in all the madness. At The Studio we are continuing with small classes so if you are bored come and paint with us. It is a good time to learn something new. Adult classes are every Wednesday from 10:30-Noon or 5:30 to 7 pm, or Thursday from 2 – 3:30. Kids meet on Wednesday from 4:15 to 5:15 pm. Contact Kelly and come join us for a class. If want to help The Studio stay alive you can click here and purchase art or gift certificates.

984167_798062843560523_6040492690765160047_nIn an effort to keep our small business afloat during this difficult time we have added a section to our online store for art and items for sale.  Many of these are the sample paintings and quilts we have created for classes and paint parties we have held.  We will be adding to this category every day.  We hope that you will click here and check back often.  Maybe you will see something that you would like to have.  We would really appreciate the support.  To kickstart the sales we are offering a 25% discount for these items for the next week.  Just use coupon code LOVETHESTUDIO.  We will be adding more items every day.  As art is our thing….and not technology….we are working as quickly as we can to get these items up for sale.  Again, we would really appreciate the support.  And, of course, if you have seen anything on our blog or at a Paint Party or event that you would like to purchase just contact Kelly at kwalker@thestudioforlearning.com .  She’ll be glad to provide the information for you.

This current situation will kill many, many small businesses.  It is difficult for us to close for a month without severe ramifications.  The Studio is going to continue to be open. We have sanitized all surfaces and are taking all precautions but we will remain open.  We hope to have you come and paint with us.  We encourage you to review some of the past images we have painted that you may have missed and yet wanted to do.  Now is the time.  Just pick your image (and there are tons of them including but not limited to the ones shown here), contact kwalker@thestudioforlearning.com or call her at 540-683-9688, and arrange an appointment to come paint.  We will sketch the canvas and have it ready for you to come paint.  Please help The Studio remain open if you can by continuing to come in and paint.  Thanks!

3 WinnersWe have three terrific classes coming up this week.  On Friday, we will be painting “The Old Gate” in a small format that includes the frame.  This will be a fun one to do and you will leave with a beautiful painting framed up and ready to hang …. or that will make a perfect Mother’s Day gift!  🙂 Click here to register for it. And then on Saturday we have the Cross Rag Quilt just in time for Easter.  Register now and get the pre-class instructions.  And then on Sunday we will be painting again in the Expressionist style with this terrific still life.  These are sooooo much fun to do and turn out beautifully.  Join us by clicking here.  Click on any of the links to read more and see the full photos of each project.  Hope to see you later this week.

What an afternoon!  We had a great group of painters that came out to try something new, something that challenged them in their painting journey.  And boy, did they step up.  Everyone stepped up; they soaked up the new information and did a great job.  Beautiful work came out of our set-ups.  Now we can’t wait till the next one.  We’ll have another “Master’s Class” on Sunday, April 26th.  Watch for more information and get ready to stretch your skills.

We made amazing vases last yesterday at The Studio under the expert direction of Denise Kupiszewski from The Mud Peddler Studio in Shepherdstown.  Everyone was so creative and they all turned out terrific.  Can’t wait to see them glazed!
