Sculpey Birthday party

With the help of smallSHOP artists, 
the guests created a sculpey character. 
Then we photographed them and added the kids saying. 

Cute to take home the critters & 
even cuter to get a print of their character later. 

Have a creative day,

So Long Chauffeuring: smallSHOP Brings Art Class to You

So Long Chauffeuring: smallSHOP Brings Art Class to You

Peeing in private, sleeping past five. Since becoming a parent you’ve had to redefine your concept of luxury. Not having to drive across town to yet another extracurricular?   That’s practically as good as getting a massage. Which is why smallSHOP founder (and mother of two) Sage Raval brings the amenities of a fine art studio to you.  So while your mini-Monet is masterpiece making, you can use the precious downtime to get dinner on the table. Or sneak in a nap.

Halloween New Creations and Some Old Time Favorites

We love Halloween!

Especially when we get to combine 
a few of our favorite things: 
Paint + Glitter +  A Kid's Imagination
This year we have made a few new pumpkins and 
brought back some of our favorites from last year. 
We went to our local farm, 
but Trader Joe's has great pumpkins for $2.99. 

A 4 years old boy's vision... a minion. 

An 8 years old girl's idea... a unicorn.


 Glitter, tape and paint = Chevron patterned fun

Minimalist Pumpkin...

 Shiny Star Topper...

Black + A Bit of Green...

So, go and get a pumpkin and some paint... and have fun!
Or call us... we will come over and brighten up your porch.

Have a great day!

Art Science

Watercolor + Ice + Salt = Art Science Fun

We froze ice globes, but you could use any ice. 
Rub it with salt. 

Gently drop liquid watercolor on it and 
see what designs you make. 

As this is made of ice, if you want to keep 
a memento of the art, snap a pic. 
Otherwise, just let it melt away and remember the fun you had!

Happy Summer. 
And remember, do something creative today!

Summer SPLASH!

Looks like school is out and the kids are playing. 

At least at smallSHOP! 

We ended a few after school classes 

with these splatter paint hats. 

So much fun!

Love hurts - smallSHOP

No shame in shedding tears. 

Sweetest Daddy Day Card...

Make Dad's heart melt!
Need something creative for Sunday?
Try this... it takes no time 
and is full of sweetness!

Take a photo of your child 
pretending to hold something. 

Have your child draw or paint a small work of art 
or better yet photograph a piece of art 
that they have already done
and print it small. 

Cut out the artwork. 
Make a little cut around each hand. 
Slip the small artwork into the cut to make it look like 
your child is holding the art. 

And pop it in a frame. 

And here is another one... 

And watch daddy's heart melt!
Have a great weekend & do something creative today.

My own private animal park...

Somedays it is nice to just sit and sketch. 
2 lovely girls (age 7) and I 
spent sometime sketching animals. 

If you draw them piece by piece it is much easier. 
Adding a bit of color, makes the sweet character come to life. 

Do something creative today!
