New Studio Fun!

The Surface Design class this winter in the NEW STUDIO was great! The space is large, bright and with all the pottery on display it invites one to create!! Megan taught us many new skills that challenged us to enhance our pottery surfaces. I love being in the studio with Megan and JD and all the other artists! Come try it out if you like to create!

Special Topics class

This was the first class I took at the new studio located in downtown Kimball. It is brightly lit, spacious and well organized. JD and Megan have created a warm and welcoming environment ideal for creativity to thrive. Megan shared her vast knowledge about surface design and decoration and taught it in a way that was easy to understand. I was challenged to expand on my techniques and creativity and finished the class feeling very excited about what I had learned. The handouts were helpful too.
