MAY 2016 NEWS AND SPECIALS
Jack invites you to join him for our 1st Annual Dog Days of Summer Paint Event and Picnic
Saturday, May 7, from 1 – 4 pm at Tulsa River Parks
(18th and Riverside, near the Art Smart Challenge Sculpture).
Bring a picnic lunch, beverages and blanket and enjoy entertainment provided by popular Tulsa jazz virtuoso Joesf Glaude. Get your face painted, or just relax by the water.
Bring a photo of your pet, and artists will be on site to give tips on drawing your pampered pooch or pussycat (paper provided free). For a more permanent memory, register to paint a colorful representation on canvas using acrylic paint. The registration fee includes everything to make a canvas painting plus free face painting and entry into Art Smart Challenge to win prizes* for the top “popular votes”.
A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the Domestic Violence Intervention Services Pet Kennel, where pets of families in crisis receive care and love during a very difficult time for their owners. Visit DVIS online at www.dvis.org for more information. Attendees are also invited to bring bagged pet food and supplies for the shelter.
MOTHER'S DAY GIFT GUIDE
Mother’s Day is Sunday, May 8! We have lots of options. Consider a gift from our showroom or a Gift Certificate to let Mom choose her own gift. Or maybe she would enjoy a class (just for her or a special activity for you to do together). Whichever you choose, you’ll be sure to find something Mom will treasure! And don’t forget to spend time with Mom (or a special friend) at our picnic on Saturday, May 7.

GIFTS FROM OUR SHOWROOM
Our showroom offers a variety of great gift ideas for Moms with varying styles… choose from fused glass or bead jewelry, maybe pick out a whimsical bird (does it look a little bit like someone in the family?)
Or perhaps your mom is more the stained glass window type, or a fused and funky lady might be her style. Come let us help you find the perfect gift!
The Beginner Stained Glass class starts with an introduction to design, using finger painting to reinforce the creative element of stained glass design. Then we teach you how to build a stained glass window. And students will have the opportunity to build a second project in class based on their finger painted design! The $275 class cost includes a $100 voucher for your materials and tools. Sign up for the next class starting July 7. Start a new adventure this summer!
4-week project class for intermediate/advanced students. Each month, we feature a different panel and a new technique/skill. Class meets Saturday mornings, 10am-12noon. Featured panel for May will be an Art Nouveau floral panel (Joy and Nick are choosing glass for her custom version). Featured technique/skill will be modifying a design to fit different spaces and color palettes. Find all the details and register here!
In this 2+ hour class, we will be building a whimsical bird to sit on your windowsill or shelf. The class includes instruction, materials for 1 bird, use of our tools – you bring your imagination! If time allows, additional materials may be purchased to enlarge your bird family. Register for May classes now (June classes are also available!)
