What’s on your heart?

Painting at PicassoZ

This sweet couple, Tim & Mariana, painted this “heart with wings” plaque to display at their upcoming wedding.     So, what’s on YOUR heart?   Bring in family and friends or paint with a sweetie this month…or paint FOR a sweetie this month.     Our ceramic keepsakes are memories you can sign, date, incorporate a personal design, or just cover with specialty glazes which don’t need design work to them.

Pottery painting is completely beginner-friendly and kid-safe.

Our glazes are non-toxic and lead-free.  Handprints, anyone?

On Valentine’s Day, we hold an annual event that is always quite popular.   It seems people want to make memories and are looking for an interactive, creative way to do that…  therefore: PIcassoZ.   Mosaics are popular that day also, since they go home with you.   So plan to join us on Tuesday, 2/14, as all the tables in our building…upstairs in the Party Loft too, will be available for painters, making chunky candles, clay jewelry & mosaic’ing.    We dont accept reservations, its walk-in only.

Try your hand at designing jewelry!  Assemble your own elegant fused glass pendant at PicassoZ!    Select your base shape and color, layer it, and top it with some design glass pieces!   We’ll fire it in our teeny tiny little baby kiln, and its ready in just a few days.  Rush orders are possible, just confirm with staff before you start.   We add a sterling plate bail to the back so you can hang it on your favorite chain, and have a gift box for your piece.  We also have 36 inch hand-dyed silk ribbons available for purchase.

They look like you bought them at a high end boutique, when you in fact, had a fun afternoon out in our eclectic art studio making it yourself.   Bring some friends!   It can take as long or as short as you want it to.   We’ll call you when its fired, got its professional polish, and boxed!

This is for kids 8 & up, since the components really are pieces of glass.   (However, we have another make-your-own-jewelry program coming specifically for our Budding Picasso’s this fall!)

Mother’s Day painting deadline is May 3rd

Paint through May 3rd

Paint a keepsake for Mom through Tuesday, May 3rd and it will be completed and ready for pick up no later than Saturday, May 7th.   Handprints, footprints, special memories, names…we know Mom, and she’s just happy you thought ahead and took the time to make her something special this year.    No art experience needed, we have stamps, stencils, sponges, and crystal glazes which are easy to use and just as fun!

FIRING UPDATE:  We had a crazy spring break and our firing took longer than normal because we had to relocate our kiln room to another part of our building!    Yep!  Tea Largo, our contemporary tea & coffee bar, has grown at an insane pace this past year and needed our kiln room for expansion in a hurry!   (Got to love the timing.)   So, we have 2 ceramic kilns now, back in business and turning pottery around in about 4-7 days or so, depending on what time of the week it is!    If you need it rushed sooner, just ask.

If you’d like to bring Mom for a memorable Mother’s Day 2016, join us for pottery painting, mosaic or candle making May 7-8, with extended hours and open seating in all 4 of our spaces on Sunday!   We always have a little gift we give Moms who paint or make mosaics with us Mother’s Day weekend every year.      **Chunky candles & mosaics go home same day.

Sincerely,

Kristin

Registration is open for our Fall Art Projects at PicassoZ Art Cafe.  Picassoz has an amazing upstairs loft we will be using to be creative in. I can’t wait! I heart Mondays & Tuesdays! Please email me for information – Melanie Carroll mondayartclasses@aol.com

PicassoZ owner Kristin says:

“We are absolutely thrilled to host Melanie Carroll’s art classes!   My daughter (who is NOT a confident artist!) and a friend (who is!)  attended her classes at Hobby Lobby this spring and they both just loved her.  Well, now with our all our creative space here on Cleveland Heights, I was able to offer up our inspiring Art Loft to host some special art activities for kids!    I’m so glad to have her teach our kids!  Melanie is a real gem!

Her classes are an hour long and different age groups are at different times throughout Mondays & Tuesdays as great homeschool and after school activities for kids.  Here is her Facebook page to see more about her and some of her student’s work.  In the meantime, plan to drop off your kids and send your teens over to be with us!

Soccer Ball Event 6/26-7/2

Soccer balls for Rwanda

Bring in a new soccer ball, and you can pick one of our soccer banks, soccer plaques or soccer bowls to paint! Why? No, its not World Cup fever, although that’s exciting. Our own Emily Osley is going on a mission trip with Highland Park Church (down the street) to Rwanda in July, and they are taking soccer balls to give out to the children in the community they are helping. I (Kristin) thought since Lakeland is a soccer town, some of you may like the opportunity to send a ball as well as have something for your soccer fan to paint this summer!

HERE’S HOW IT WORKS: Buy a new soccer ball (they are $10-15) & bring it to PicassoZ Art Cafe. We will trade ya a paintable ceramic soccer shape (worth $19.50-$22) for each new ball.

You can use a sharpie & your child sign their name on the ball, too! It’s super cool for the little kids in Africa to see, as well as for your child to feel how giving to others is totally fun! **We have several cases of soccer items, but If the soccer bisque is gone, we issue a rain check!

500 kids needed to paint tiles for PicassoZ Art Cafe's tile wall

UPDATE:   Our tile vouchers are now all claimed…all 1300 of them!!!!  I’ll have to wait til the 3/13 & 3/25 painting deadlines to see how many tiles were actually painted.  If I need more for the wall, I will post on Facebook.  I assume I will need extras but to keep it fair, I would put out another numbered voucher., unless someone has another way to keep it fair!

You can select a special printed design and “silk screen”, and we will apply it for you on your painted ceramic surface with a unique concoction we mix up.   So, if you just want to paint a background light blue, then put a ship tattoo on it, boom…you’re an artist.

Just like a tattoo…for your pottery.  Sea theme, woodland theme, basic swirls, etc. And vintage theme coming in later this month.
