These days, I want to scream loudly that its not just about “THE ART ITSELF” the physical form of what’s created, the thing that exist after creativity, nor the person who desires to view it or own it.
The work at Studio Everything is all about what is happening “Through the Art”. Creativity in action is what we call it. The method of using the process of art to inspire, empower, and transform.
What does it feel like to create ? What does it feel like to learn? How can you put your creative success and your artistic knowledge in action to create better things to feel good about?
The power of making, and the access to making, expands the passion of creativity.
studio Everything is all about everything!
It’s been awesome seeing young people make things, discover the joy of creative exploration, and willingly share what they know with one another.
Sooooo, Mothers Day just passed a few weeks ago and to support neighborhood moms guess what happened at Studio Everything? A little bit of everything.
We opened the studio so kids could swing by to make something special for someone special. They could make glass pendants, charms, planters with vegetable plants in them, or greeting cards.
The kids created great hand-made gifts for their mommas. Next up is Father’s Day…. Guess what we will be doing in at Studio Everything?

12:30 pm – I went to the studio to stabilize and weld Big Buff’s Barbecue trailer so he could get back on the road Que-ing it up for Chattanooga. Yeah “Studio Everything” 2:00pm – All of a sudden one kid, two kids, three kids, eventually up to six or seven showed up to “do something”. I had to put down the welding torch and get to mentoring. Glad that Zachary Reynolds showed up to aid in mentoring. What made the day an even greater success was having the kids who just recently learned share their knowledge with new kids…. – until 7:30pm. The power and transfer of knowledge is amazing!
We outfitted an old sitter kiln with a temperature controller. This allowed us to fuse glass pieces without it shattering into pieces. This Saturday, we tested the kiln for the first firing with success. Now we will launch a few repurposed glass workshops.
Stay tuned and checkout the results
This week at Studio Everything. LaNeshia and Nadia worked hard carving wood. LaNeshia chipped away at a block to carve out an apple, while Nadia shaped a heart. All chiseled by hand. Now that the shapes are roughed in, we will continue with sanding in the next phase.
