Kid’s Classes- PORT LAVACA. We are continuing all classes until 8/31/23 at 515 N. Virginia St. Suite B. We are actively seeking another location and/or possibly keeping the Virginia location pending funding. We had agreed to pay a portion of the rent but Sheila Abigail is relocating to San Antonio unexpectedly so we do not have the same arrangement for a year as we first expected. We have had kid’s classes in Port Lavaca since 2021 and plan on continuing the classes. Our students consistently win awards at various art shows each year and we are so thankful for the partnership we have with Victoria Fine Arts Association for these classes!
UPDATE: It looks like we have found an alternate location! We will plan to move classes there for all Port Lavaca offerings beginning 9/1/23!!! We will make more announcements soon.
Paint & Fire Pottery is available at our Town & Country Location- 2914 N. Laurent St. in Victoria! Glaze or paint with acrylic Tues-Fri 3-6pm or Saturday 2-6pm.
