It is nearing the beginning of August at Studio 2 Designs, and boy are we busy! We have the Colorado Springs Farm and Art Market weekly on Wednesday evenings, and thanks to the wonderful support of the Colorado Springs community, we are ever-busy, continually producing inventory to take to market!
Are you coming to the upcoming Maker Fair: Green Market? Studio 2 will be there! Add yourself to our guest list here for a special coupon to our Etsy store! And we may have some hidden goodies somewhere throughout our booth *wiggles eyebrows*.
Thank you for being patient with the evolving development of our Etsy store– as market season continues to keep rolling, it seems the only thing that makes its’ way to the online storefront before being sold are our larger, fine art pieces! Come and visit our booth every Wednesday evening for the latest and greatest in our handmade inventory, to discuss the locations of our fine art on display locally, hosting your own terrarium or shadowbox party, getting Studio 2’s handmade inventory within your storefront, or ideas for your own, personalized commission piece.
Now, for the important information at hand: Studio 2 is now offering fall workshops through The Colorado Springs Fine Arts Center! In addition to this information being available on our event calendar (which you should add to your bookmarks), and Peak Radar, we would like to dedicate some space on our blog to this class schedule as well.
Catch some of our Fall classes at CFAC starting this September:
Shadowboxes: have you ever seen one?
Today, you might find a beautifully crafted glass case on display in someone’s home containing anything from awards, to insect specimens, to fine art, or tiny nostalgic treasures.
Beginning as a military tradition, and developing throughout time as an art medium to cherish memories and tell stories alike, join us in exploring the art of assemblage by creating your very own shadowbox: an homage to tiny, beautiful moments of life. While exploring the history of this art medium, as well as artists that have mastered the craft, we’ll create our own shadowboxes in this hands-on, 2 hour workshop.
Keepsakes, miniatures, found objects, and shadowbox accents are all provided for this workshop, however, if you have something special you would like to include, or a preferred working medium, we encourage you to bring it along!
$50. Register online at http://artschool.csfineartscenter.org/classes/
Explore the benefits of having living art in your living space by creating an elegant glass terrarium!
Learn about the history behind terrariums and receive hands-on instruction while learning how to create and maintain a custom, flourishing miniature micro-world of low-maintenance, succulent plants.
Each workshop includes your choice of one glass terrarium container, plants, moss, materials, as well as terrarium accents. All materials and tools are provided. However, if you have a special item or memento you would like to include in your project, we encourage you to bring it along!
There is a $20 materials fee payable to the instructor on first day of class for tools and terrarium materials. Ages 16-Adult
