New! Em’s Art Shack is re-opening for kids clay club!

It has been a cold winter back in the shack, but we have been busy insulating the ceiling to hold the heat of our new pellet stove!  If you are looking for some art enrichment for your child, please choose from the club options I am offering below.  

These classes are held in my garage studio (Em’s Art Shack) located at 28 Gray Ave.  The cost is $50/month for 4 classes and it includes all materials.  My philosophy around these classes is that art is for EVERYONE and my goal is to create pieces with your children that will walk with them through life, whether it’s a gift for a family member or friend, or whether it’s a functional piece that they interact with daily.  No paper weights here!  In the spring, when my new wheels arrive, we will also dabble in throwing pottery on the wheel!

If you sign your child up, please enter their name in the ‘comments’ section of the order form.  I will send you emergency contact forms after you sign up, to email back to me or to bring with you when you sign up.  You can also find the emergency contact form here.

Artist Statement

Having grown up spending every summer at our ancestral home in Nova Scotia, Canada, my summers revolved around the 40 foot tides of the Bay of Fundy.  My days were spent in, on, and around the ocean and whether it was the feel of the fog, the sound of the seagulls, or the taste of salt water on my skin, the sea has always calmed my soul. 

Living a landlocked life in NY, I find myself longing for the ocean to right my spirit.  I find solace in creating functional pottery with glazes that reflect the greens and blues of the ocean, the whites of the waves crashing, and the trio of sea birds flying into the sunset.
