What Makes Us Different?
We are artists and although our crafts are vastly different, our objectives are the same for our students: To enable each person to discover the inner artist within themselves and instill the belief that anyone can become an artisan regardless of skill level with the proper guidance, whether it be in pottery or paintings.
