Get ready to get messy!

In celebration of the Holiday season, we’re offering an exciting interactive workshop with guest artist Christine Stovell. Join us and create one-of-a-kind splatter paint gift items that make stylish stocking stuffers and personalized presents for yourself or loved ones. Christine Stovell will help to guide you in selecting colors and creating your own original designs.

We’ll be offering a selection of reasonably-priced apparel and accessories available for purchase to try your hand at creating unique Expressionist-inspired gifts. From tote bags and ball caps to children’s and adult tees, the whole family can get creative together!

Attendees are welcome to bring their own items to splatter paint, purchase an unbranded product, or pick up Creativity Explored apparel online or in the gallery to add another layer of personalization. For those that prefer to keep your hands clean, some pre-splattered products will be available for purchase.

Join us for this free public workshop and try your hand at creating unique Expressionist-inspired gifts that give back! While visiting the studio, be sure to shop our renowned Holiday Art Shop for affordable original art and products that support our artists. This season, shop with heart, give more art!

RSVP via Eventbrite or simply drop in from 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm to join in the fun!

Please note that your original creations may take some time to dry, so please plan accordingly and come early. Those that come late may need to stop back at the gallery the following week to pick up your completed creation.

Get inspired and check out some of the examples from past splatter paint workshops hosted by Christine Stovell:
