May FLOWER love in the studio:

Oh, it’s finally spring! 
Can you feel the shift? We can see the tree buds and flowers popping up at the park and in the neighborhood all around the studio. This with the cool ocean breeze – we are here for it!

Inside the studio – we respond by bringing in even more joyful, energy-giving, hopeful colors of spring through projects, plus real flowers (from our garden and local artist/mama-florist saudadeflore!)

We are doing all FLOWER-themed projects for these special 1 time workshops – working on fabric (making little table, dresser or wall art fabric) plus paintings…stamping, drawing, collating sweetness, and tons of yellow and spring colors –  we are making it happen! We will be creating some special memories with these May workshops. Each one will be crafted to bring in the tender and fierce energy of flowers –  and can connect to all of you that celebrate mothers (and all the diverse ways we have mothers and identify with the idea and/or name of parent or mother) we will have special parent/child dates and also drop off options where children can make some gifts! We are putting so much love into this month – May feels really important to me as a mama and I want to make it really sweet for everyone, so look for a time that works for you and swing by! love, Christina

At the studio!  – Love Lab Studio @ 26 Brackett Street, Portland Maine, adjacent to a beautiful city park and nearby playground. We are located in a mixed residential and commercial area, and usually, there is usually ample parking available but be mindful in the winter. We are located across from Good Medicine” a space for healers and doctors, and we are right next door to the cute “smalls”, and diagonal to the lovely Harbor View Park. There is a playground on Tyng Street just down the block where we can watch the bridge and birds from the swingset – we recommend a trip there after studio time! 

1. These special workshops in May will be mask optional – we are going to try this out and see how it goes, also our door and windows will be open we hope! Teachers will all wear one.
We still highly encourage all to wear masks at the studio (except for snack time!), we are asking that all families consider wearing a KF94 or N95 mask for children if they haven’t already. Please do not come if you are sick, or think you are getting sick! If you have a question about this please ask Christina. Think of the CDC regulations, then with even more care. We do this for many reasons, and really appreciate you all helping us keep the community healthy right now. Also, if you miss the workshop because of sickness we will work hard to get you an art kit or make-up option if you let us know before the workshop, by emailing or texting/calling us 207.332.5790. 

2. Prior to starting class, each parent/guardian must sign our online forms (including media form, release form, and other important info) that will arrive in your welcome email! Please bring a water bottle, a little sweater, and a cozy pair of slippers if you have them (socks are OK too, and what we teachers wear). 

You will arrive at the bright studio usually with nice quiet music playing, take your shoes off, find a cubby/hooks to store your things, then wash your hands at the art sink. After that, we have a project at the big tables to get into right away as a warm-up and jump into the fun! We usually have a teacher supporting children to find their cubbies and wash their hands (especially for our youngest artists). The children do their warm-up project first. After that, we gather and circle up to go through our activity areas and project theme and then get to it! For grown-up with child workshops, we will often gather as a group before going to the different stations to work.

Watch for your email prior to the workshop date, and please watch for other studio events and workshops!
We look forward to working with you in the studio!
