Nurture Your Creative Spirit with the EMOSY, an experience, an art project and thinking process. The EMOSY is a fun, engaging art activity that encourages mindfulness & creative thinking.

The process uses visual storytelling inspired by the stained glass art medium. It can be a painting, a mosaic or a stained glass project.

The idea or story for a custom stained glass window starts with the EMOSY training.

Enjoy the EMOSY experience at home with one of our many kits or during our classes or private events by making a stained glass work of art inspired by beauty and/or symbolism and meaning.



Hey folks! Come join us for an exciting event where you’ll have a blast creating a beautiful stained glass work of art to cherish. The EMOSY experience is like a magical adventure just for you! You’ll spend three fun-filled hours at Tulsa Stained Glass, surrounded by friends who love art as much as you do.

Spread your wings as you use our art materials to help find meaning in life by way of the EMOSY. You are encouraged to conceive your own image based on an idea, event or person. Design suggestions will be provided in class, however projects with a deeper personal meaning tend to be appreciated more over time. For example, a butterfly can be a symbol of freedom and transformation rather than just a decorative object.

Building the vision!  Selecting colors  can be a light hearted decision or one that has a deeper emotional effect. From all the options, seek the best pieces and shapes to represent your vision.

As you work, feel the textures, and shapes in your hands. Arrange them with care to create your project image. You can experiment and try different arrangements until it looks just right. Choose pieces of glass carefully to make your creation extra special.

It’s amazing to see how the glass pieces transform your vision into a symbol of meaning and creativity…a whimsical masterpiece made by you!

Our talented instructors will be there to help you every step of the way. They’ll guide you in making your artwork into a stunning stained glass project or a beautiful mosaic. No experience required.

You’ll feel so proud of what you’ve created! It’s like a special gift you give yourself – a feeling of accomplishment, peace, and happiness. Throughout history, people have known that making art can make you feel good inside.

The EMOSY experience is where your creativity can shine and your feelings can be expressed through art. It’s not just about making something, but also about discovering yourself and what makes you unique.

So, my friends, don’t miss out on this fantastic opportunity to have fun and grow. Join us for the EMOSY experience. Let your imagination soar and your spirit shine. We can’t wait to see you there!


At its core, an EMOSY is a fun activity making a self-expressive work of art using colors and shapes connected by lines, inspired by the art in stained glass. The process promotes thinking and connection with others, leading to a powerful visual communication tool.

An EMOSY can be one idea made of many pieces or a central idea with many components. Inspirations can include:

  • thinking about the past, present and future
  • people, events or ideas
  • representation of emotions

If thoughts are abstract, the maker can narrow focus to determine a subject.…let’s say for example a flower is the best representation of a family. The number of flowers represent the number of brothers or sisters, the petals represent the number of children of each sibling and so on. Soon a family picture emerges symbolic of a bouquet of flowers.


The Journey Begins

Each EMOSY begins with the basics – assorted pieces of glass chosen for their meaning and significance. This group of therapists came together to create an ensemble piece. With no plan in mind, each person chose a piece of glass that spoke to them, from hundeds of options, and worked as a team to combine them into a symbolic work of art.

The Transformation is Complete

The chosen pieces were assembled with care and emerged as a beautiful butterfly, a symbol of freedom and rebirth.  Witness the magic of creativity, promoting healing, peace, and relaxation. On a personal level, learn the powerful tool of commemorating life’s moments.. Make your own EMOSY and let your creativity soar!

Learn the whole story of the butterfly’s creation and discover how you can channel your life experiences and creativity to create your own work of art with meaning.


This is the official hands-on activity kit combining the ancient Japanese Zen garden and EMOSY philosophies.

The Japanese Zen Garden is an ancient art form that incorporates rocks, trees, water and bridges to create a setting of peace, harmony and meaning. The two main elements of the EZ Garden are glass pieces to represent mountains and sand to serve as flowing water. The meditative placement of the components represents immortal souls, longevity, and continuing health. Apply the same principles to your tabletop EZ garden to find peace and create harmony.

The EMOSY is a self-expressive symbolic art activity that encourages mindfulness and creative thinking. It is inspired by the timeless craft of stained glass, which has been used for centuries to tell stories. The EZ Garden Kit is a tool for visual storytelling.

Ideas for stories could be about a person, place or event. The story might be about your goals, growth, relationship, values, achievements or gratitude.

The finished work of art is an abstract image for the maker to communicate.  Once your artwork is complete, share your story by taking a picture of it and sending it to a friend or family member.

This Kit is excellent for Sensory Exercises: Focus on the sound, feeling/touch, breath and sight for 5 seconds as you manipulate the art pieces in the EZ garden kit. Use these exercises when completing other activities in this kit.


The EMOSY follows in the shadow of traditional stained glass window storytelling as found in centuries old castles and magnificent cathedrals of Europe.

The EMOSY can take on any art form but the focus here is stained glass themed, such as painting materials, stained glass mosaics or a leaded glass project. EMOSY projects are more about creating an artistic composition of meaning rather than a functional stained glass window. However, to create a representation of the stained glass, it is very helpful understand the materials and processes of the craft first.
