Places: Stumptown Art Studio

By Beacon Staff

Beat the winter blues by creating one-of-a-kind art pieces at Stumptown Art Studio in downtown Whitefish.

Besides offering a number of classes – including creating with clay, glass fusion, mosaic monogram workshops, felt making and mandala painting – the nonprofit offers a unique activity for walk-ins.

Design your own piece of pottery by choosing from a number of already prepared bisque ware, under glazes and paints. Once you have picked a piece to decorate and chosen the colors for your artwork, the rest is left to your imagination.

Because it is so simple and user friendly, all ages can partake, making it an ideal activity for family or friends.

The studio’s March 14 event will focus on the painting “The Last Supper” by Leonardo DaVinci. Guest lecturer Susan Guthrie, an art historian and teacher, will explore the turbulent history of the piece, including its origins and popularity.

For more information on youth classes, adult workshops and the ceramic annex, visit Stumptown’s Web site at www.stumptownartstudio.org.

How to get there:
The Stumptown Art Studio is located at 145 Central Avenue, downtown Whitefish. If going north on U.S. Highway 93 through downtown, turn right onto Central Avenue.
