Fun Classes for All Ages

Terra Studios is the place to find beautiful art and also to discover the joy, satisfaction, and passion that comes from igniting your own creativity. We offer short mini-workshops for both adults and children. Each course is especially designed to allow you to learn basic techniques and complete a project in a single visit. Classes vary from 30 minutes to a full day, but most are about two hours long. Check the schedule for class times.

For those who already enjoy making and doing, these classes offer a time to have fun and explore new crafts, as well as to develop or increase your skills. Come and revel in this opportunity to be part of our creative community and utilize the extensive facilities at Terra Studios.

Even people who haven’t thought of themselves as artistic, who think “I can’t do art” or “I’m not creative,” find joy and laughter in our workshops, designed to take the anxiety out of the experience while unlocking an adventurous spirit in all our participants.  Step-by-step instruction and insider tips make our classes fun for everyone. Bring a friend, take an afternoon to create something with your child, or make the experience an artistic retreat for yourself.  Our classes make an unusual and thoughtful gift idea as well, since every participant emerges with a lovely keepsake creation as well as the fun of the time spent in creating it!

Our private classes, offered for six or more, are a fantastic way to build camaraderie with co-workers or to strengthen connection with family and friends. Terra Studios’ philosophy that everyone is an artist is highlighted in the group art experience.  Consider an art workshop for your next office party, neighborhood get together, birthday or family gathering.  Terra Studios will even cater your lunch or dinner.

Green Man Planter Class

Green Man Planter

Saturday, April 21st @ 1:00-3:00 – $45

Green Man Planter – Ages 12 & up

The Green Man image comes in many forms as far back as 400 AD.  Most of them are made up of a man’s face surrounded by leaves.  The leaves often appear to be growing out of the face.  These images are found carved into wood and stone throughout Europe, Great Britain, and Ireland. In this class, we will start out making a stump-like planter with an emerging face.  We will impress real leaves into flat slabs of clay, cut out the leaf shapes, and surround his face with foliage.  Your planter will be stained with a rustic iron oxide stain by your instructor.  This class is so new that I only have a picture of one I just made!   This planter will look wonderful in your home, patio, or flower garden.

This class is designed for those age 12 and up.

Please print your receipt as your class admission ticket.

Clay Fairy Houses Class (for Adults – 12 yrs old and up)

Sunday, April 22nd @ 1:00-3:00

Fairy housing for fairy neighbors! One of the most creative, popular, and satisfying classes offered at Terra studios, our Build A Fairy House workshop brings you together with our fabulous artists to construct your own addition of our ever-popular Fairy Villages. The Fairy population is expanding as people work together to protect our mutual environment and new housing is needed for their young families. Whether you envision a flying buttress, a medieval thatched roof, a tiny villa covered in magical inscriptions,  a duplex with wings, or an Ozark classic, our artist can show you how to make your vision a reality. These little creations are much like our famous Terra Bird Houses except that the size of the bird need not calculated into your design and the Fairy Houses can be part of an indoor or outdoor community. When you see your little domicile lit up at night with an LED bulb, welcoming the Fairy neighbors to an Open House Celebration, you will soon be part of this important movement to provide sweet shelters for the Sprites!
