Shortly after we arrived in Clearwater, my son went out to the local sports bar two times,  about three days apart.  It was about six days later that he started with a dry cough and the following day he woke up with a really bad headache, body aches and a fever.  I made him go get tested because I was due to fly home that week and I did't want to bring the virus home to my husband or my other adult kids who still live at home with us.  His test result came back positive the day I was due to fly out.  I cancelled my flight (thank you Southwest Airlines!) and assumed the worst was going to happen, despite the fact that we both wore masks and stayed apart from each other while we waited for his results to come in.

Bloom Art Studio Supply Shopping Fun, Mermaid Tails, and Creativity Celebrated

Who doesn't love the thrill of a really good sale?  Especially, when that sale involves supplies essential to the running of an Art Studio!  Michael's store are in the middle of a massive clearance sale-both in-store and online.  Emily found excellently reduced prices on paint and paintbrushes.  Hurray for sales that will benefit all current and future art class creations!  Check out the sales before they disappear into retail oblivion!  Oh. And yes, be prepared to step into the months of September, October and November... you walk through the door. Yesterday, Summer Art Enthusiasts (also known as students)"dived" into some under the sea fun as Ava taught an Introduction to Water Colors class.  The end result?  Shimmering, mermaid tail creations ready to be displayed on a wall!  One artist enjoyed a special surprise as she painted--the astonishing realization that she was indeed CREATIVE at the wonderful experienced age of 78!  Bloom Art is thrilled

The Artist's Way Workshop is coming to Bloom Studio

Are you asking yourself any of these questions? Am I experiencing all there is in my life? What is creativity? Where did my creativity go? My life is in transition--what do I do next? Join in the Artist’s Way Workshop--a cluster of like-minded individuals who are desiring to experience more out of life, discover or recover their creativity, experiencing transition in their personal or work life, or simply want to shine their creative light more at home, work, or play. This eight-week class will assist participants in jump starting their own creativity while being part of a nurturing community of women exploring Julia Cameron’s book The Artist’s Way . Class members will gather once a week for 8 weeks, to develop strength in using the “tools” of Morning Pages, Artist’s Dates and other acts of creativity, share in book chapter discussions and celebrate while giving witness to each member’s journey toward creativity.                                                    

We have new blooming aprons!

We finally have all our new aprons in sewn from colorful, 'blooming' fabrics.  The aprons were made by Christy Berger,  a wonderful seamstress from Bozeman, Montana.  She is an old friend of Bloom's owner, Emily, who commissioned her to create a slew of colorful coverings for both adults and kids. They are most excellently made with a large pocket in front to hold a paint brush or two.  They are certainly a cheerful addition to the studio. If you ever need anything made from fabric, please give Chris a call.  She can do almost anything!  Pretty new aprons made from Amy Butler Fabrics  Our kids aprons have a beautiful 'Picasso-y' design. Liam is wearing our Picasso-y apron. Christy's Craft Corner (Bozeman, Mt.)  406-209-3248 Etsy- ChristysCraftGoods
