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!

It's spring and if you're looking for a way to add a little color indoors, ceramics is the answer. This piece brings the beauty of an early spring flower and a beautiful butterfly to life. As a bonus, you can choose colors to complement your decor. I love the changing of the seasons. You can see Nature's reactions to the warmer temperatures in the spring and the bonus of an added hour of daylight in the evening means we are ready to get started with those outdoor activities. But until spring is really and truly here, let's paint something happy. And this piece is sure to bring some warmth to your home over the long months of next winter.
