March 2005

Get yourself and your kids into the spirit of Spring by creating something new.

And at the newly opened Mind Over Splatter pottery and art studio in Downtown Chandler, you and the kids can paint pottery, create mosaics, and even create a beautiful Easter Egg that will last for years to come.

The owners of the family-run studio call themselves “your creativity coaches” and can help you decide what to make and show you how to make your creations beautiful.

Mind Over Splatter also offers a variety of classes for you to take with your kids. This month you can paint a flower pot, and when you pick it up – you’ll get soil and flower seeds to complete your project. Or you can paint an ice cream dish, a pencil holder, a toothbrush holder or a bank.

Also available are classes where you learn how to make mosaics including an Easter Egg, a sun catcher or a picture frame. Sound hard? It’s really not. With the help of the friendly staff, you’ll marvel at what you and your kids can create together.

Have fun making art with your kids! Be sure to tell your “creativity coaches” that Katrina at Active Moms Events Calendar sent you – and don’t forget to send me photos of you and your kids and your masterpieces.

Wishing you lots of springtime creative fun,
