Painting Pottery

One of our favorite art places is Aran's Art Studio in Castro Valley.  On Friday, 11/21, we invited Shannon's friend Emily along as a belated birthday gift, to paint her own pottery.  She chose a little dish and a cup with fall leaves around it.  Here are the girls picking out the colors they want to use on their pieces.  Shannon painted a beautiful fairy and an ornament which turned out to be a birthday gift for me.

Emily's mom had great fun helping her with the sponge painting.  

Joshua painted a beautiful vase with landscapes from his imaginary planet Braughnt while John tried his hand at glass fusing.  I painted a spoon rest for my kitchen. 

While the last of the painting was being finished, the kids played Apples to Apples with other kids that were also done with their projects.  

Aran's is a fantastic place to spend an afternoon!
