Your art. Your way.
We’re excited to announce the reopening of our doors on Tuesday, June 9th to customers wanting to come in and paint in our studio! We’ll be open for limited appointments, reservations are necessary at this time. We’ll allow a maximum of 15 customers inside the shop for each appointment spot (this is less than 50% of our capacity). If you’re interested in painting with us, check out our Book Appointment Page.
These are the following precautions we’ll be taking and asking you to take to ensure the health and safety of our employees and customers:
- Between each appointment time, we’ll thoroughly clean and disinfect all tables, chairs, brushes, door/sink handles, and the bathroom.
- Please wear a face mask when coming to our store. We wear masks for your safety, please wear one for ours! This is a requirement for painting with us.
- Customers will sit no more than three to a table to allow for physical/social distancing guidelines.
- We’ve spread out our tables to allow for more space in between each of them.
- No sharing of brushes, each customer will have their own water bowl for cleaning.
- No touching the ceramics on the shelves (you’re free to touch them once they’ve been brought to your table, of course!) or paint bottles (we’ll pour the colors of your choosing).
- Children under the age of 5 must remain in a stroller while in our shop.
- We’ll require everyone that enters the store to take their temperature (along with all employees) via infrared thermometer. If you read above 100.4 temperature and/or have COVID-19-like symptoms, you’ll be asked to paint with us another time.
Our shop is small and we’re focused on providing folks with a healthy outlet for creativity!
We’re also offering take home paint kits for those of you looking into fun and creative activities to do outside the shop! When you finish painting your pieces, you can drop them back at the shop to be fired in our kilns. Or, if they’ve been painted with acrylics, they’re done once the paint is dry! Check out our Take Home Painting Kits Page or shop online.
