Monday & Tuesday Art Classes

Monday & Tuesday art classes

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!

Mosaics & CaNdLes

Create your own mosaics & candles over in Breakables Studio

Looking for something creative to do you can take home with you?   Our walk-in mosaic studio, Breakables, is adjacent to Tea Largo, with cafe style seating so you can “break away”, relax, and create.

When we moved to our Cleveland Heights studio in December, one of the most exciting things we did was expand our mosaic studio!    For almost a decade, our mosaics were in “bits and pieces” on a wall in a corner of our studio.   It was surprising how popular they were for how little space they had.  Being a self-taught mosaic artist, the mosaic side of our building is my favorite!   It’s got loads of glass, ceramic, sea shells, and even drift wood pieces to work into your project.

Our shapes are visible and nicely displayed on the walls, and we even added ceramic words, letters and specialty baubles that are available at a minimal charge that can really make your piece pop.  Mosaics go home with you, so they are a wonderful activity if you drive in to spend the day with us in our silly building of creativity.

ChuNky CaNdLes belonged in our Breakables Studio too, since many of the candle wax options we have to build your candle with are indeed breakable.   We make slabs of thin colored candle wax that breaks apart, and then looks like a beach glass.   Of course, candle chunks are still on hand, for building a pillar mold candle or a glass jar candle, with your choice of fragrance!

Breakables is open:

Wednesday-Friday 10-6pm

Saturday 10-9:30pm

Sunday 12-6pm

Spring BREAK week features mosaics, of course

Making mosaics!

Yes, we at PicassoZ love a good play on words.    So, we’re playing up the “break” and loaded up promotions in our Breakables Mosaic Studio.   If you haven’t visited yet, its really grown in popularity as a nice, relaxing environment to create in.   It has a different vibe than PicassoZ, and is a little more sophisticated, but not much, LOL.   It’s still walk-in, and still DIY.  But with mosaics, you can take your creation home with you!    Our hours are a little different in Breakables, 10-6 and this Spring Break week, we’re open

Monday-Friday 10-6pm

Saturday 10-10pm

Easter Sunday all our shops are closed.

See our event calendar for an assortment of fun mosaic specials, and even some that celebrate the fact that it still is Easter Week!

How to build your own candle at our studio

In our Breakables Mosaic Studio, we offer FunKy ChuNkY Candle making.   It’s been pretty popular for a few reasons, like they are kid-friendly, go home same day, and customizable (you select the colors, pattern and the scent).    So, make sure you know the hours for Breakables Studio, as it differs from PicassoZ:
