Paint Me Happy!
Hello my name is Diane Hunt and I will tackle almost any craft project dealing with ceramics or any other craft media! I offer classes each month (Saturday’s only) at a cost of $15.00 plus taxes for almost anything in the shop. So put on your oldest shirt (the paint will not wash out) and come join me in a wonderful stress reliever. Call me at 870-777-3862 or text at 870-331-4255 for class information, or purchase bisk or greenware. I have learned some important lessons by trial and error. But the one thing to remember is there are no mistakes in painting ceramics, if you don’t like how it looks, just start over. I have taught classes to some wonderful students from the ages of 2 to 63 years young, and am looking forward to teaching more as the years go by. Everyone has some type of talent hidden deep down inside of them. All they need is a little direction to find their talent. With the right equipment, molds, brushes, paint etc. anyone can make a piece they can be proud of! Just think of someone special in your life, if you made a special piece and gave to them, think of the joy it would bring them. They will treasure it for the rest of their lives!

This week I want to show you a piece from an 18 month old.  I labeled the piece the Patchwork Pig.  And looking at the photo you can see India painted it any color she wanted.  This is the final result.  I painted the eyes and toes, but the rest was all her creative juices flowing.  It won 1st place at the Arts and Craft booth at the fair. 

This piece is a piggy bank and it's popular with young painters.



It's never too early to let your child get creative. While it's tempting to "help" them do it the "right" way, it's important that they learn to express themselves from an early age.



And there's never a "wrong" finished piece, from the blue pig to the pink giraffe, a youngster can always be proud of the results and, as you can see from this pig that was painted many years ago, the piece can serve as a keepsake for years to come.
