Homey and professional, a rare combination. That is the way I’d describe the Creatively Yours Studio. Upon entering, every visitor is received with a warm greeting and explained the various options available. Sorin Lungu, owner of Creatively Yours, and his assistant guide visitors from the selection process through the completion of their choice masterpiece.
There is a plethora of options available, some need advance reservations while others don’t. Some options are only done in classes; such as canvas painting and the latest idea, wine glass painting. Then there is also the glass fusion which requires advance reservation. This cool form of art is made from actual pieces of colored glass, which are designed differently by each person, and then fused together into one solid decorative or useful glass piece, such as a glass tray, frame or coasters.
For walk-ins, or even for those that just prefer it, there is ceramic painting. There are so many shapes and items at a variety of prices. There is a rainbow of paint colors and stamps in countless designs and shapes available to aid in painting the ceramics. Just as we arrived a couple left after doing a ceramic with their baby’s footprint.
There is a studio fee of only $5. During a second visit the paint is free. All painted pieces, except the canvas painting, must be left in the studio and are picked up at a later date once it is glossed with the added finishing layer by the professionals.
Creatively Yours is open 365 days a year. We visited on Thanksgiving. We did not make reservations as it was a last minute trip. We ended up painting ceramics but got a full view of the options. We watched others who had prior reservations make glass fusion projects. The canvases and wine glass painting looked like something I would want to try with a group. One thing is for sure, visit Creatively Yours and let your creativity lead you.
