Searching for a creative outlet? It’s the new year and everyone is making resolutions. Maybe your resolution is to hit the gym, eat a healthier diet, or maybe, it is to express yourself more. Personally, arts and crafts have always been a stress reliever. Painting something clears the mind and allows me to relax. It has also been a great activity for my daughter as she has been able to grow and learn so many things through art. The perfect spot to discover all of this and get creative is Cordovan Art School and the Pottery Parlor.

The Cordovan Art School believes in fostering creativity and self confidence through visual and performing arts.  They provide classes, events, and summer camps as well. It is open to all ages and all skill levels. You may be just starting out, or you may be a professional, either way, there is something for you at Cordovan. As soon as you enter the school you feel the positive and enjoyable atmosphere present that encourages students to progress and gain an appreciation for the art. 

I’ve utilized their summer camps for my daughter twice in the past and she has loved it! They have an early drop off time which is perfect for those parents who have to get to work and then a pick up time after the work day is done. During the summer camp the kids are taught a variety of mediums and tactics and are given the freedom to explore many different art forms. At the end of the camp, they have an exhibition for the parents to come and see all of their hard work displayed in a professional fashion! It’s a super great experience for the kids, and they come home with so much! 

Cordovan prides itself on its dedicated and passionate staff. Every teacher has the utmost patience and skill to teach every student fundamental principles with time-tested techniques. They are not about taking shortcuts, they want to foster growth and satisfaction within each individual by learning, doing, and repeating the process over and over again. 
Their website,, has a ton of useful information and answers just about any other questions you may have. They are a great school full of great people and I can’t recommend enough that you should check it out and develop your talent with them. There is such a wide variety of classes and skills to choose from, there is truly something for everyone.
