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!

Spring is here and a very young person might think that means there is plenty of time until the next changing of the seasons. Those of us who have seen a "few" seasons change know better. You'll mow a few times, spend a few days vacationing (if you're lucky), and it'll be time to send the kids back to school and start raking the leaves of fall.

Most people pull out all the stops to decorate for Christmas but you may think it's too much trouble or too expensive to do seasonal decorating. If you have always wanted to make your home's decor change with the seasons, ceramics provides an inexpensive option. As spring arrives, you can pull out a few happy pieces painted in spring colors and - wah-lah - any room in your home can take on the wonder of the budding season. As fall approaches, simply pack away the spring items, pull out some fall items, and you've heralded the coming season.



And if you're looking for a great fall piece to add to your collection, just take a look at this.
