I made an agreement with myself to get The Studio straightened up on my final couple of days off. Since the space is small we really have to keep it organized in order to be able to find the things we need to work. And that is hard to do when there are so many people there creating cool things each week. But we can do it! So yesterday I took everything out of storage areas and decided what goes and what stays. What a mess. But it’s coming along. I don’t know about you but I am more creative when my studio space is organized.

Today I just want to say once again THANK YOU to everyone who has made The Studio a success. When I first asked a handful of women to meet with me so I could bounce some ideas off of them about what I had in mind I never envisioned that it would be all of this. I just thought a teaching studio would be a great idea.
What I didn’t realize, and I don’t think anyone did, is that it has turned into a gathering place for friends. So many new friendships have come from people meeting at various classes…or by getting to know different instructors. We have created together, traveled together, learned together…and so much more!
So, thank you again for making my vision so much bigger than any of us could have imagined!
We had an amazing birthday party for The Studio yesterday….2 years! We started this last year as we felt that it was a good opportunity to thank all the people who supported us throughout the year. We offered several projects for people to make and take with them.
We love seeing everyone busy creating! Thanks for another terrific year. Looking forward to number 3!
Two years ago today, August 1st, we opened The Studio on Main Street in Front Royal. Happy Birthday! I was asked why we celebrate the opening as a birthday instead of anniversary. It is because for many of us The Studio is like a living thing! It’s been a “friend” to many as it has provided a place to gather and learn. And learn we have over the past two years.
We have had classes and workshops featuring painting (of course) and jewelry making, yard totems, wreathes, holiday gifts, tennis shoe painting, kids classes, cupcake and cookie decorating, felting, drawing, crocheting, knitting, quilting, Pet Portraits, coloring, flower arranging, collage, painted trays and buckets, Gelli printing, tee-shirt remakes, team building, trips to museums and so much more!!!
Last year on our “Birthday” we had a wonderful Birthday Party with lots of free projects for everyone to try. (See more here.) And we are planning to do it again. We invite you to help us celebrate on Monday, August 29th from 5-7 pm with another evening of great cake and fun projects for adults and kids. Please mark your calendar now and come celebrate The Studio with us!
We can’t wait to see what happens in our 3rd year!!!! We hope you will be a part of the fun and learning.
Yesterday was a busy day with two paint parties – one at the Holiday Inn and one at The Studio. Rice Tire from Maryland is having a retreat/convention here and invited us to have a Paint Party for their attendees spouses. We had a large and enthusiastic group. Everyone did a great job and is going home with a wonderful souvenir of their time in the Shenandoah Valley.
The afternoon saw us painting at our 1st Saturday Paint Party where we painted the third in our Four Seasons series – the Spring Tree. They looked GREAT!
Lots of beautiful art was made yesterday!
