Hue Working On New Series!

Hue is currently working on a new series of large vessels, each incised and painted with colorants prior to the bisque firing. These mark a real change in his creative focus, as they are a combination of his geometric and abstract two-dimensional painting style and his 3-D pottery pieces. Watch for posts of photos of the completed pots!

Summer Arts & Clay Camps Were Fun!

Thanks to everyone whose children came and created at Creava Arts during our very first Summer Arts & Clay Camp season. We all had a blast making art and making new friends!

Kids in Week 1 made life-size paper mache dogs and cats, then painted them in quite creative ways! The Week 2 campers made all kinds of clay garden art, including some very fanciful frogs! The highlight of Week 3 was painting minions on rocks, and then we made all kinds of creative clay pieces in Week 4, like monster pots and hand soap dishes. Week 5’s campers made Impressionist art with acrylic paints, including self portraits in the style of Vincent van Gogh.

Summer Camps Are Underway

Summer Arts & Clay Camps have been so fun and busy! Campers made full size paper mache cats, weiner dogs and rabbits the first week in Extreme Paper Mache Camp, then all kinds of fun pottery pieces in Clay Garden Art the second week. Here are some photos of the kids!
