[teaser]Mimosa Studios is celebrating ten years of painting pottery![/teaser]

Who knew we would have so much fun and laughter and meet so many wonderful friends by sharing our love of painting pottery?  Ten years have flown by and it’s time to celebrate!

You’re Invited to Our Ten Year Anniversary Party

We want to say thank you to all of our fabulous customers (that’s you!) so we’re throwing an anniversary party the weekend of November 5th & 6th. We’ll have party favors, tasty snacks, door prizes, and a contest to guess how many pots have been painted at Mimosa Studios in the past ten years with a $50 gift certificate as the grand prize!  We hope you will be able to join us for our celebration.

A Benefit for De Paul Youth and Family Center

25% of all proceeds from our anniversary party will be donated to De Paul Youth and Family Center. De Paul’s Youth and Family Center’s services include: assessment and evaluation of abuse and addiction issues, gender specific treatment programs for boys and girls, family therapy services, and integrated mental health services.

About Mimosa Studios

Mimosa Studios started at my kitchen table with more painted pots than cooking pots and a small kiln in the basement. My love of doing art with others expanded to Alberta Street with the goal of creating a warm and welcoming atmosphere for people of all ages and skill levels to relax, have fun, and paint pottery. We opened just one month after 9.11. at the beginning of the emerging Arts District. Last Thursday was just starting as a neighborhood art walk.

Over the years, our family-owned studio has hosted more than one hundred birthday parties, wedding and baby showers, office parties, school auction projects, off-site parties, and our famous Margarita Parties (last Friday of the month). We’ve also seen some incredible pottery painting by people of all ages: from a vibrant hand-print of a newborn to intricately painted pottery pieces, we are continually amazed at the art our customers create.

Mimosa Studios is proud to support community efforts, offering discounts and donations to schools and community groups working to support children and strengthen families.

Thank you for visiting Mimosa Studios and sharing the enjoyment of pottery painting with us.
