FAMILY BONDING TIME

Monroe Street Studio is excited to offer Family Bonding Sessions on Saturdays from 1:30 – 3:00pm. We consider our Studio to be a big art family, and we would like to invite your family and loved ones to experience the joy of creating art together. This is a great opportunity for your family or group to gather in the studio space and connect over a selection of art-based activities. Attendees will have guidance from an experienced art teacher and will have materials provided to express their creative side. We welcome people of all ages and experience levels to join!

If you are interested in scheduling a session for your family or group, please contact us at art@monroestreetstudio.com

Clay Modeling 

Join us in our clay studio and learn how to make your own 3D works! Come with your own ideas, or have guidance from a resident studio artist. We offer two types of clay: Air Dry Clay (no firing required) and Low Cone Firing Clay (requires firing with a kiln). For Low Cone Firing Clay, you have the option to return a second time to glaze and fire your creation for a stunning result. 

Bisque Glazing

Do you want to create your own unique decorative plate or special mug? If so, this project is for you. You will use pre-made bisque objects and quality glazing to paint and create a stunning collectible piece for you to take home. This project will require kiln firing and will need to be picked up at a later date.

Painting

You can’t say no to this priceless opportunity to paint together with your child, family member or other loved ones. Come and create in our artist studio environment! You are welcome to come in with your own ideas or get inspired by our resident studio artist. We offer two types of painting opportunities: acrylic paint on canvas, or watercolor on paper.

Glassware Painting

Express yourself through your own personalized glassware!  Whether it is for yourself or for gifting, this will be an excellent opportunity to make a memorable piece that will always stand out on the table.

Glass Mosaic

Using safe pre-cut glass materials, come and create your own decorative design plate or inviting stone for your front yard! We will be focusing on the design aspect of glass mosaic and can provide resources for at-home grouting. This is a 4-hand project: every two participants will create one mosaic piece.

Hand Sewing

Come and learn the art of hand sewing by creating a cute stuffed animal/object that will leave a lasting impression. Make a friend for yourself, or gift it to a loved one as a warm and cozy keepsake.

Beading

Would you like to make your own fancy bracelet or home décor (such as a suncatcher) in a calming studio environment? Come and explore all sorts of creative possibilities using a variety of sparkling beads and jewels.

Print Making

Learn how to make artwork that can be reproduced over and over again! Using a foam etching technique, we will teach you how to make a print design that can be used for a variety of projects: prints, cards, t-shirts, and so on! In this session, we will focus specifically on acrylic prints on paper.
