Here at Bamboo Studio, we know that creativity and new ideas go hand in hand, and we’re all about creativity. We’ve been working on some exciting stuff for a while, and we’re finally ready to share it with all of our favorite artists (you)!
First of all, we’d like to welcome our newest artist and instructor, Chelsea Holley. Chelsea attended Kendall College of Art and Design here in Grand Rapids, and has been developing her skill as a painter ever since. She’s an expert instructor of paint parties, making every class fun and easy. Check out her original painting for Dia de los Muertos – we love the vibrant colors.
New Class Schedule
You asked, and we listened! As the weather outside gets frightful, it’s great to have plenty of fun indoor activities, so we’ve expanded our class schedule. Now, you can attend a painting class Thursday through Saturday every week! Our new schedule is as follows:
- Thursday, 6:00pm – 9:00pm
- Friday, 2:00pm – 5:00pm Open Paint!
- Friday, 6:00pm – 9:00pm
- Saturday, 2:00pm – 5:00pm
- Saturday, 6:00pm – 9:00pm
Update 11/14/17: Due to staff availability, we have returned to our old schedule of Friday and Saturday, four classes total. Sorry for the inconvenience! If you’d like to see more class times, please contact us and let us know what works best for you!
In terms of new art classes, Grand Rapids MI, have we got a treat for you! There’s still plenty of time to sign up for our new Wooden Sign class (this month is pumpkins – have we mentioned how much we love pumpkins?) with reclaimed wood signs made by a local carpenter and artwork made by you! We plan on offering these classes throughout the year, so don’t worry if you can’t make it. We’ll be sure to let you know.
We also had a great time at our first miniature figurine painting class, and we’re ready to go again on Monday, November 6. You can sign up on our website, or via our partners, West Michigan Tabletop Gamers. Painting miniatures is such a cool, versatile hobby that can be addicting – give it a try!
We’re always brainstorming new fun at Bamboo Studio, so make sure to check back for more news.
