  • Get Centered Clay Studio
    At Get Centered Clay Studio, instructors teach fledgling clay artisans the basics of slinging, spinning, and molding ceramic works in a fully equipped facility. During each two-hour private instructional class, participants will learn a brief history of clay making, as well as the foundational skills necessary to hand form clay, spin symmetrical pieces on the potter's wheel, or sculpt lifelike busts with their minds. Budding artists can then hone their craft on amorphous clay blobs, becoming familiar with the materials and the wheel. Although students will not create a fully finished piece, they will leave equipped with the know-how to make ceramic water jugs and full-scale concept cars in the future.

  • Inspire San Diego Studio
    Signature service: Social art-making workshops Established: 2014 Reservations/Appointments: Required Staff Size: 2?10 people Average Duration of Services: 2?4 hours Pro Tip: Come with an open mind. It's all about process?not product. We are all artists in our own way. Q&A with Jessica Kost, Owner Besides making clients happy, what do you like most about your job? The thing I love the most about my job is watching art works come to life by people who initially thought they couldn't make anything. It's a magical experience and fills me up with such pride for each person who comes to a workshop. I hope they leave with a sense of accomplishment and a higher self-worth. When and how did you first develop a passion for your work? I developed a passion for social art-making in college. I would stay up all night with my friends, making art and drinking wine. It didn't matter what we were making?it was all about being creative together. Once I was out of college, and immersed in my career, I kept looking at the art I had made and longing for a spark that would inspire me to take it back up again. After a while, I was sick of feeling guilty for having blank canvases stuck in the corner and decided to find new people I could make art, with the hope that I could rekindle my passion for art. I did, and it worked. I was finally making art again and feeling that wonderful closeness with others in my creative circle. I decided to turn this into a business to spark that same feeling in others on a larger scale. Is there anything else you want to add that we didn't cover? We encourage people to be playful, add their own ideas, and create their own masterpieces. Making art is an activity similar to bike-riding or bowling. We're not expecting people to make gallery show pieces. We only ask that they try something new.

  • Losina Art Center
    In 1991, the eponymous founder of Losina Art Center, Olya Losina, moved to La Jolla from Moscow, where she was raised among a vibrant artistic community and served as the art director for the Soviet Union's largest multilingual publishing facility. Losina's fine-art methods, which she honed while obtaining her master's degree at Moscow University, focus on teaching art as a science. While helping her students at the center to work toward mastery of portraiture, the human form, landscapes, and still-life subjects, she performs exercises that aim to reach them on a subconscious level. Together with Losina, the students examine the conscious thoughts that often intrude upon creative expression. They approach the artistic consciousness as a surgeon would approach a brain when trying to dislodge catchy pop tunes from the frontal lobe. With obstructions cleared, pupils find themselves able to work freely and efficiently.
