hello new decorations!

With the start of a new season – and session of classes – it was time for a fresh look for our studios. We are fortunate to have a giant wall of windows in our front classroom, which is great for letting light in to make art, and for showing our personality. We always like to have something eye-catching up front.the messy artist new jersey

This is our third look for our windows since we opened up in this location in 2012. The first was an array of paper lanterns.kids art class camp parties new jersey

The second was colorful ribbons.fine art class for children nj

But this one is the first one where me made the whole thing ourselves with these string balls.front of MA with string balls copy

Here’s how we did it:

  1. We wrapped string covered in white glue around different sized balloons. Finding places for them all to dry was sometimes a challenge, but we used all of our space.best art class for kids nj morris county new jersey kids art class
  2. We popped the balloons to remove them from the string – this part was fun. (well, all of it was fun – but this part especially so).ball vid
  3. Next we trimmed off any lumps and bumps from the glue.east hanover art class for children
  4. White spray paint was used to even out the color.process oriented art class
  5. The final step: attaching the strings and hanging.art studio for kids new jersey art studio for kids classes parties and camp njviv hanging string balls copy

We couldn’t be happier with the way our project came out, and customers are telling us they love the new look.
