    I grew up in John Day and always had a love of languages. Upon graduation I travelled and lived in various communities. Spanish became a second language to me during my two years serving in Peace Corps Costa Rica. I am now living back in the area with my husband whose native language is Spanish. We are passionate about teaching our 1-year-old daughter to be bilingual and I hope to share my love of the language with my hometown.

All supplies are included although students are encouraged to bring their own embroidery floss colors and transfers if desired.

    Jodi lee's passion for fashion, theater and the arts began at a very young age. She was highly involved in the theater program during her high school years (both on and off the stage) and found herself constantly designing and altering clothes. Her involvement in the arts and fashion world lead her to a small modeling career where she got the opportunity to live abroad in such cities as Athens, Hong Kong, Milano and more. After a few years of traveling, she settled in Los Angeles where the birth of SandBox Rebel (and her son, Aurthur) took place. SandBox Rebel sprung from the simple need for hip and inspired children's clothing. Being frustrated with what was on the market, Jodi lee rolled-up her sleeves, grabbed a pile of old band shirts and took to the sewing machine. Before she knew it people were buying her wears from her (self-made) diaper bag... then a store wanted an order, then another, then she opened her own store and, viola! Since then, SandBox Rebel has been featured two years in LA's Fashion Week, several magazines such as People and LA Kids, worked with several non-profits and started an internship program sharing the joy of fashion with countless others. She currently resides in John Day, Oregon where she is still up to her crafty ways designing, crafting, and teaching.

    Come have lots of laughs while making your own custom terra cotta face planter. Students will be given an unfired, hand-thrown terra cotta planter and plenty of clay to sculpt and attach facial features of their own design. Once dry, pots will be kiln fired and then ready for students to pick up a few weeks later.

    Ages 8 and up

    Like so many other potters, I was first introduced to clay in a high school ceramics class. By senior year, I was taking most of my lunches in the ceramics room with the other art geeks, spending as much time playing with clay as I could. But, again, it was the clay’s versatility that I was drawn to. You can make it look like anything you can imagine - tree bark, skin, leather, metal - you name it! And the meditative spin of a wheel, who can resist that?

    To pursue my interest in the arts, I attended Bennington College in Vermont, a school with a deep history in ceramic arts, where I received my B.A. in ceramics. During that time, I also worked in a ceramics factory, under glazing literally hundreds of pots a day! The following year I had the opportunity to go to Washington D.C. and intern at the Capitol Children’s Museum and create a ceramics studio and program. In 2003, I moved to Grant County where I met my husband, David, and joined him in the Nomad Sign Art studio and learned the old school art of hand lettering and hand-crafting signs. These days my 500-pound potter’s wheel sits cozily in our living room next to the woodstove, where our whole family can learn to play on it.

    I am extremely excited to share my love of clay at the Painted Sky Center for the Arts. So many of my best memories and closest bonds have been made working in studios, making art, and playing in the mud.

    This class is one of my favorites! It's a fantastically fun project for beginning and experienced embroiderers alike. I will be teaching you how to transfer your image onto fabric and a few basic embroidery stitches. Let me show you how simple and fun it is to turn that photo into a piece of art! What you would like to do with it afterwards is completely up to you; they look lovely framed or turned into an envelope pillow cover (I hear there's a class for that).

    Students are encouraged to bring their own machine if possible and a basic sewing kit. You will be contacted after signing up to discuss supplies needed and so I can get your chosen image prepped and ready previous to the class time.

    I started doing pottery in high school and instantly fell in love with it. I took as many ceramics classes in college as I could fit into a busy schedule. I can't resist the methodical but messy nature of making pottery, and I love being able to make beautiful but useful pieces. Since moving to Grant County, I've been so happy to find a ceramics studio with such an incredibly kind, welcoming community of artists. When I'm not playing with mud in the studio you can find me doing something (anything!) outdoors with my border collie, baking, and trying out any kind of arts and crafts.

    Vases are one of the most recognized ceramic objects. They can be simple and functional or completely decorative. The vase is a great way to begin learning ceramics making and decorating techniques. In this class, Joshua will go over building techniques of pinch, coil, and slab ceramics. As well as showcasing how he creates his own unique works.

    Each student will have the opportunity to make 1-2 vases with guidance and assistance from the instructor. Day 1 will have time for making; day two will be used for finishing and decorating. The studio will finish the pot in a clear glaze and fire it to completion to be picked up. Each student is encouraged to show up with 3 sketches of a shape they would like to make.

    Ages 13 and up


    Joshua began making ceramics in 2013 and has since gotten a BFA in sculpture, worked in an array of Portland's ceramic factories, and worked alongside other professional Oregon ceramic artists. His works are both thrown as well as hand-built forms and sculptures. He attempts to make pieces that appear as if formed by nature rather than the human hand, creating unique works or organic yet functional ceramics.

This class is available independently, although it pairs nicely with its counterpart "Applique It."

    Students are encouraged to bring their own machine, if possible, and a basic sewing kit. You will be contacted after signing up about fabrics/supplies needed.

    Jodi lee's passion for fashion, theater and the arts began at a very young age. She was highly involved in the theater program during her high school years (both on and off the stage) and found herself constantly designing and altering clothes. Her involvement in the arts and fashion world lead her to a small modeling career where she got the opportunity to live abroad in such cities as Athens, Hong Kong, Milano and more. After a few years of traveling, she settled in Los Angeles where the birth of SandBox Rebel (and her son, Aurthur) took place. SandBox Rebel sprung from the simple need for hip and inspired children's clothing. Being frustrated with what was on the market, Jodi lee rolled-up her sleeves, grabbed a pile of old band shirts and took to the sewing machine. Before she knew it people were buying her wears from her (self-made) diaper bag... then a store wanted an order, then another, then she opened her own store and, viola! Since then, SandBox Rebel has been featured two years in LA's Fashion Week, several magazines such as People and LA Kids, worked with several non-profits and started an internship program sharing the joy of fashion with countless others. She currently resides in John Day, Oregon where she is still up to her crafty ways designing, crafting, and teaching.

    Let's get our stitch on! In this workshop we will be combining our skills to bring your own special memory to life. In the first segment of the workshop I will be teaching various embroidery stitches and complementing forms of embellishment before we move onto transferring your own chosen image onto fabric and making the magic happen. Upon completion of your beautifully hand-stitched work of art you have the option of framing it or turning it into a lovely throw pillow (think gift time people!!). Come spend the day with me and let's see what beautiful memories we can embellish on.

    We'll have a picturesque "getaway," painting this Ocean View! We're going to create this using a palette knife and brushes, or you can choose just brushes or just the palette knife. We'll definitely feel a vacation vibe while painting, so bring a friend or family member or come and make new friends!
