Doing art with children is nothing but a combination of my two loves, teaching and artwork. The child’s face after they have completed a work of art is priceless. After we throw summer break in the mix, we have a winning combination. The kids have a blast during summer art camp, and I have a blast creating artwork alongside them. By drawing and painting in each activity, we will explore creating art on different materials. We will have fun while learning.
Please come join our art camp, the kids will love it!!! With the parents’ and child’s consent, I may finish the week off with some face painting. Can’t wait!!

Heya! I'm Suzanne, a River Valley native. I found my Pottery passion while in real estate and dove into pottery as my life career. I'm hoping to bring fun engaging classes to either open your world to pottery or hone your skills.  In my spare time I enjoy foraging, cooking, gardening, and making things with my hands.
