The Art Experience

So last week I showed you our Kool Kats ice shack. Thanks for all the fun comments and support! This week it's time to share the studio I work at...The Art Experience.

This amazing place was started in June of last year by my children's art teacher...Lisa Loe. She has really out did herself don't you think???

We offer various classes {jewelry making, cork and canvas, polymer clay and tons more}. I will be teaching my second class this Wednesday night from 6 to 8.

If you are in the area I hope you'll join us!! The class is $20 for everything...the house, supplies and inspiration!!

Here is my Soul House in case you missed it last week. I LOVE it!!!!

Lisa's main focus is paint your own bisque ware. This really took off over the summer!!!

Can you believe everything she has to choose from??! I want to paint everything. Especially one of those darling birdhouses!!!

I feel very blessed to be able to work at a place whose main goal is to foster creativity in others. Nothing makes me happier than when I see young children come in and proudly show off their creations to me. LOVE IT!!!

This summer we introduced "Doodlie Do!" My sweet Emma girl along with a few other artists draw on canvas's which we offer to our customers. They can use markers, paints or watercolor pencils to fill in the FUN doodles!

Lisa also features local artists including my Brave Art. So far I have sold 11 pieces:)

Here is another local canvas artist...Brenda Neff.

Along with helping customers I get to work on my own art at the Studio....this has given me a bit more creative time which I you can imagine, lol.

If you are in the area please stop by!! Check out The Art Experience in uptown Maryville. We are open Tuesday through Saturday...some nights till 8pm. Check us out here, too.

Well, I hope you've enjoyed this peek into my life the last few posts. I can't wait to share a piece I've been working on for months now. Expect that later this week...Soul Neighorhood Part 1.

Also a reminder about our first annual October Word Challenge that starts October 1st!!!!

Do you work at a creative place?? Heck do you even work outside the home? I would LOVE for you to share!!!!


  1. What a super-cool place, Leslie! I wish we had a spot like this near to where I live. I can imagine all the creativity flying around there on a daily basis! I can't wait to hear how your soul house class goes.

  2. What a fantastic place! Sigh.... I wish I lived near a place like that!

  3. Hi Leslie,

    Very cool!! Eleven canvases -- way to go. Your birdhouse class looks like it'll be loads of fun. It would definitely be fun to work in an artsy setting.

    As for me, I have a full time, regular, serious job. It does give me the ability to play with my crafts (keeps me in supply).



I appreciate your thoughts and ideas...they inspire me!! I will be visiting you soon. Have a CREATIVE day!!
