Come visit us at The Artery Studio.
The Artery offers classes and art activities for children and adults in a fun and supportive atmosphere. What began as a few pottery lessons in the clay studio of ceramic artist Leslie Wentzell, grew to include art instruction in many mediums. In the same way, our Open Studio, which was initially conceived as time for our pottery students to use their new skills to work on their own projects, has grown to include drop-in activities including Paint-Your-Own-Pottery, wood crafts, painting on canvas, mosaics, and silk scarf painting. We also have a selection of art and craft supplies for sale at our studio.

Open Studio for Clay & Painting
We have a full wet clay studio, including basic tools, and a variety of clay and glazes.
Persons with experience working in clay* are welcome to drop in during our open hours to handbuild or work on a wheel. This is non-instructional time to work on your own, but we are always available to answer questions. In addition, we offer beginner and advanced classes in clay. (*For those with prior experience, a 30 minute "Intro to the Studio" is required prior to attending Open Studio. Cost: $8.00. Without prior clay experience, attending a 4-Session Clay Class will give you the basics for working on your own in the studio.)
