Our Studio & Departments

Located at Oak Openings, 115 W. Michigan Ave. Clinton MI, 49236

Ceramics

Our Ceramics studio was designed with efficiency in mind. Come experience our top-of-the-line equipment for working with clay, and fire your work in our Blaauw kiln. Students can take classes to learn the basics of ceramics, continue their education with advanced classes, and work alongside experienced artists. The studio also offers open studio hours for students and artists to come work independently.

Glass

The Glass studio is a great place to learn new skills in a unique medium. Students can learn a wide variety of techniques using glass, such as slumping and fusing stained glass and lampworking. Come use our professional grade kilns, machines and torches to shape glass in any way you can dream of!

Metals

The Metals department is geared toward creating jewelry and small sculptures. Students can work with copper, bronze, brass, and silver in a variety of processes using our wide array of tools and machines. Each class helps students learn a variety of techniques, and students can sign up for guided open studio hours to work on their own projects.

Two Dimensional Arts

2D Art is a wide medium that includes everything from drawing, with different types of pencils or pastels, to painting, with watercolor or acrylics, and that is only the beginning! Students can take classes to learn the basics of drawing, or come in and expand their knowledge while learning to use different types of paints. Students can work with materials provided in class, but are also encouraged to bring in their own supplies.
