INSTRUCTIONS NOT RULES…

Hello My Lovely Painters…

I know last weekend was a new system for you & me.

To all of my first painters of 2021, I appreciate your patience & laughs.
Your painted pots turned out BEAUTIFUL!!!!

Here are the basic steps to Reserve Your Studio Table.
Do not wait last minute, especially on a rainy day.
Plan ahead.

This new way will better communication for your visit.
Please remember this is a Deaf Owned Business.
We have invisible “handicap ramps” for communication.
We need you to follow all instructions. They are easy!

Change your mindset. These are instructions, not rules.
Every place needs them to run smoothly.


And I’m seeing cute Name Signs for arrivals.
Play along & have fun.

Currently, there are 2 studio seating times:
11am or 2pm Each are 2 hours long.
Yes, masks are still required in our studio & gallery.
Age Limit : 6 years old & up

Thanks a bunch!

Evolve…

Hello my lovely painters,

It’s been a while. Hope you are all hanging in there as best as you can. The Gallery Room has been open for artwork sales. Thank you to those who have purchased my artwork this past year. The studio room has been closed.
Like most of the Deaf & Hard of Hearing community, I have experienced major obstacle of communication & increase of ignorance during this pandemic. I have had to relearn how to be Deaf. It has not been easy or fun. It has been quite frustrating, disheartening & isolating. Many people with other disabilities have been experiencing the same feelings & more. But the gift of having a disability, is finding the way to adapt. I hope you will adapt with me.

Here’s the Paint Studio Scoop…
I have been restructuring how the paint studio will be run & its policies. The basics of my silliness & creativity have not changed. Yes, my punny jokes are probably worse. Some will be fine with the changes, maybe possibly, like it more. ( Some might not.) I am trying my best to please everyone, but I’m still learning it’s impossible to make everyone happy.
We need to change to evolve.
Keep social distance from others, you must properly be wearing a clothe mask over your nose & mouth the entire time you are in the gallery & studio. Have patience & understanding for communication.

When I opened my shop in 1999, I told myself to start simple. Then I began to go Deaf that year. And so, here I am, in 2021, starting over again. Simply. Relearning how to work with my deafness.

Here we go… Season 22 is on its way…Stay tuned…

For Paint Studio Updates…Getting ready for you…
Wishing you & yours health & happiness
Here’s to Hoping…

COVID-19 UPDATE when it rains it pours…

Hello my lovely painters,

In January, my shop was severely damaged.Β  Repairs have been delayed due to the COVID-19 situation.Β  On March 21st, all Non-essential businesses, like mine, must close until further notice.

The unfired painted pots from the past month are safe with me. They will be fired, once everything has been repaired.

I am frustrated & doing my best to stay positive & focused to get everything repaired.Β  Reading up on the new guidelines for businesses.

Thank you for your patience at this time. Sorry. This is completely out of my control. Once they allow us to reopen, I will be following the guidelines from the government.Β Β 

My hope is to reopen for this summer season 2020.
But…We all have to be patient & stay home.
Wash your Hands! Stay Healthy!

Hope you all are well. Miss you!

Sincerely,
Amanda aka “The Paint a Pot Lady”

TEMPORARILY CLOSED… HERE’S TO HOPING…

Hello my lovely painters,

This past week my shop was severely damaged.

My shop will be closed until further notice. The unfired painted pots from the past month are safe with me. They will be fired, once everything has been repaired.

I feel like I am reliving Sandy all over. The damage is bad. I am frustrated & doing my best to stay positive & focused to get everything repaired.

Thank you for your patience at this time. Sorry. This is completely out of my control.

My hope is to reopen for this summer season 2020.

Here’s to hoping all can be fixed.

Hope you all are well.

Sincerely,
Amanda aka
