After a decade of honing his craft in the solitude of his garage, Eran Park realized he would need his own studio. A stint in a shop taught him the importance of learning from his peers, and a visit from a dozen field tripping daycare students made him anxious for a more professional setup. Since successfully opening The Glass Park, Eran continues to hone his skills while showcasing his works, from spheres swirled with brilliant colors to beads ready for games of psychedelic mancala. The experienced artisan also shares the techniques of his craft with new students, and hosts fellow artists looking to provide their own workshops.

Artist Mike Buszuwski wanted to create “an inspirational place for kids to come and explore art.” Thus, Painting Fun Spot was born. He and his artistic staff equip artists of all ages with all the necessary supplies—nontoxic, USA-made plaster pieces, paints, sealants, and paintball guns—to create colorful sculptures in a relaxed, kid-friendly studio complete with booster seats and pint-sized aprons. Vibrant walls and an undersea mural inspire creativity during studio time, summer camps, and parties and help budding artists bestow blank plaster canvases with hand-painted masterpieces.

Painting Fun Spot also hosts painting fun art classes, during which instructor Tonya Warnke Buszuwski, a professional artist with works in collections throughout the U.S., instructs adults in the finer points of pigment placement. She leads students step by step through a selected canvas work, capturing the tranquility of an impressionistic Tuscan countryside, the bold hues of a cross, or a trio of tulips playing poker with a basset hound.
