Mandala Mania

In common use, "Mandala" has become a generic term for any diagram, chart or geometric pattern that represents the cosmos metaphysically or symbolically; a microcosm of the universe. See this Wikipedia article to learn more about Mandala. Here at Kiln & Crafts though, we find the Mandala a fascinating, fun and beautiful art form and Tracy has caught the Mandala bug!

We are excited to add the Mandala to our offerings of creative art works. Now available to all walk-in customers and scheduled groups alike, we offer Mandala painting on bottles that can be made in to lamps, vases or containers for your bath salts, dish soaps or anything you can think of, Mandala wine glasses, Mandala paint pottery, board-art and yes … even canvas. We have all the supplies, dotting tools, paints and technical advice you need to create your very own masterpiece in this trending and popular form of art!

Drop in at Kiln & Crafts anytime during normal shop hours or schedule a Mandala event for your group outing or party today!

2018 Home School Art Classes

Monthly Home School Art Class

Beginning in January 2018 I will offer homeschool art classes in a 6 class block. Class will be on the first and second Thursday of the month from 10 am to 12 pm. The price is $15 per lesson, or $70 per block if you pre pay. I have a new curriculum with 24 lessons so it makes sense to break it up into quarters, and allows me to have specific supplies. Two classes a month gives us time to work on projects that might need more time than just one class without a whole month in between. Classes are geared for K through 6th. A snack is included. This is a drop off class, so the kids aren’t distracted by mom’s or younger siblings. I’ll be happy to offer a 30% sibling discount. I really need a commitment for the 6 class block so I can count on the number of students and supplies needed.

The third Thursday of the month will be a Mommy (or Daddy)and Me class for ages 0 through the 5th birthday. The price is $15 per class and will include a story, a snack and one or two art activities. There will also be a 30% sibling discount.
If any family has a financial need, please contact me and we will work something out. I have enjoyed teaching your children and I look forward to seeing them all soon.

Discussion or questions are welcome.

The 4th Thursday is open for an older student class if there is interest. Ages 13 and up.

If interested or have questions, you can contact me during store hours at 706-9465456 or use the form below.

This Week’s Story Time

The Tiny Seed

Author, Eric Carle

This week’s Story Time we’ll be reading “The Tiny Seed” and painting a personalized puzzle. Story Time begins at 2:00PM and is $18 per child. Includes all supplies and refreshments.

This picture book admirably conveys the miracle of a seed. Flower pods burst and dispatch their seeds on the wind; the air-borne seeds are subject to myriad disasters; and the ones that make it through the perils of the seasons to become mature flowering plants are still susceptible to being picked, trod upon and otherwise damaged. But nature allows for survivors, and so the tiny seed grows into a giant flower, releasing its seeds and continuing he cycle. As he has demonstrated with The Very Hungry Caterpillar and other books, Carle as an extraordinary kinship with nature. Here we have not just the explanation of the life of a flower, but drama, lessons of life and a lovely spirituality.
