Blue Tin Studio, located in the Big City Bread 393 N. Finley St. is having its grand opening celebration September 13 on the patio of Big City Bread. You’ll be able to take a look at Blue Tin’s beautiful new studio space and sign up for fall art classes. Classes for adults include painting, charcoal drawing and back-to-basics drawing. Children’s classes (from ages 2 to 18) include portfolio building, cartoon drawing, and even private tutoring for young aspiring artists. Even if you decide not to sign up for classes, you can browse the local art for sale and chat with the studio’s passionate founders (Erin Macintosh and Sarah Seabolt) while munching on some treats brought to you by Big City. Erin Macintosh specializes in mixed media and acrylic and has an MFA in painting and drawing from the University of Georgia. She has worked as an art instructor for Gwinnett County Public Schools, Gwinnett County Parks and Recreation, the City of Atlanta’s Office of Cultural Affairs’ Summer Murals Program, Camp Gwynn Valley in Brevard, N.C., the Georgia Museum of Art and the University of Georgia’s Lamar Dodd School of Art. Sarah Seabolt has organized and directed various art programs around the country. She has a BFA in art education from UGA and has taught kids from the ages of 5 to 18. Mark September 13 in your calendars, fellow art lovers, and see the fresh, new art space in town.
