Upcoming Art Classes!
Little Wildflowers Art Studio classes and camps!
I hope you're doing well. I'm sure you're as ready for hot sunny weather as I am! (I'm really really ready...) I'm also super excited about the classes I have planned for Memorial Day weekend, June and for my summer camps! Read on to see what's been going on and what's coming up at Little Wildflowers Art Studio!
"Create Your Own Fairy Garden" Class!! Memorial Day Weekend!
What is a "fairy garden", you ask? Just Google it and check out the images. If you're still unsure, think of it as this: your little artist can basically create a dollhouse, but one that is open aired and is for the tiny fairies that are currently living in your yard underneath your mushrooms and inside your tree trunk crevices. And if you're a little girl (or an art teacher), your imagination runs WILD! Questions like, "Where will she hang her clothes? Can I make a clothesline? What about a pond? And can I make fishing poles? Can I paint the house however I want to? Can I make a campfire? And grow some grass? And make a garden?" (If you think I'm crazy right about now, I get it... Totally.) But do you agree with me that the dollhouse pretend play and decorating and moving around furniture is somewhat of a lost art? It's been taken over by YouTube videos and Angry Birds on iPads and Kindles. This is a SUPER fun and creative way your little one can use her imagination while playing with nature stuff and designing and painting and gold leafing and sewing and tying and molding clay.
And what's even better is this class is a total of 4.5 hours long over Memorial Day weekend! Avoid the wild beach crowds and traffic and bring her to this art class! ;) It will take place on Saturday AND Monday... she has to come to both classes! I promise.. it will be WORTH it!
A precious wooden house and a large container filled with dirt for her fairy garden (and all other supplies) will be provided. Cost is $100... $50 can be mailed to me to hold your space, $50 can be brought to the first class.
- Saturday, May 28th 2:00-4:00 AND Monday, May 30th 10:00-12:30
- ***artists come to BOTH classes
- for girls ages 5-9 (5 year olds must be in kindergarten)

4-Week "Be Brave & Create: Blooms & Clay" JUNE Class!
I'm really excited to have a 4 week "Be Brave & Create: Blooms & Clay!" for girls starting in June. We'll be using clay, clay stamps, acrylic paint and gloss to create something really unique. We'll also work with wool felt, fake flowers, floral tape and molding wire to create a hanging decoration that can be hung around the house all year long. The focus of this class will be about being brave to try new (safe!) things and be ourselves, even when it seems scary. We'll do a quick art journal each week experimenting with a new art medium and write down some of our thoughts about these topics with reminders to carry with us throughout our days!
Here are the class deets:
- June 7, 14, 21, 28 from 4:00-6:00 for ages 5-8 (must be in kindergarten)
- June 9, 16, 23, 30 from 4:00-6:00 for ages 9-12
- $140 per artist, cash/check only, please (can be broken into 2 payments of $70 if you'd like... one ASAP to hold your space, the rest due on the first day of class)
- Payment can be mailed to: Morgan Vuyovich at 4015 Smith Street, Kitty Hawk, 27949

I absolutely love spending time doing art with preschoolers and it's so fun for their chosen adult! Art experience is not necessary. Together, you'll create one large canvas for you to hang up and remind you of the fun memory of art-ing together. We'll use acrylic paint, oil pastels, Mod Podge, glitter, and even clay to create a neat jungle scene! Kids THRIVE when they have the opportunity to be creative and not have to worry about the mess they make! If necessary, a different adult can come each day. Please wear art friendly clothes... paint does stain.

Be Brave & Create! Summer Art Camp for girls!
Join us as we paint (acrylics & watercolor), work with clay, stamp leather, make jewelry, create with textiles, sew and MORE! All while talking about having courage, being honest, following our hearts, and being true to ourselves. Girls are constantly bombarded with reasons why they're just not enough, from the media, friends (or non-friends), and other influential sources. "Be Brave & Create" is a really fun and safe environment created to allow girls to feel free to express themselves through art! Hearing positive, empowering messages from as MANY sources as possible is very important for their confidence as a young woman. No age is too young to start hearing this!
Each artist is celebrated for EXACTLY who she is, not who she thinks she needs to become. We will create very special projects and stay very busy the whole time! This year, we will incorporate a craft on the beach and will even do a little bit of yoga!
- a healthy snack with water will be served each day
- ages 5-8 will be July 11th-15th (5 year olds must have completed kindergarten)
- ages 9-12 will be August 8th-12th
- for both weeks, camp goes from 9:00-12:00 each day
- $220 per artist (can be broken into 2 payments, one ASAP to hold her space and one 2 weeks before camp begins)
Please call/text Morgan to register or ask any questions, 252.207.6914 OR respond to this email!
Put the "art" in Party!
Looking for a creative birthday party idea for your little one?? Let me plan a craft and clean up the mess while you and your artist relax and enjoy the day! Dates and times are flexible. For preschool age, we create for about an hour then spend 30 minutes opening presents and eating cake. For ages 6-15, we create for an hour and a half then spend 30 minutes opening presents, singing happy birthday and eating cake. I make a Happy Birthday banner with their name on it and make the time special for their big day. I make it really easy for you and your family so there is minimal stress associated with their birthday party!

Be Brave & Create Spring Class was nothing short of AMAZING!
My fabulous helper (Ms. Brooke Vuyovich... One of my beautiful sisters-in-law!) and I had 15 girls between the ages of 5-8 for 8 Tuesday's in a row. Our goal was to create something new each week, and then the last class was an art show for the girls to share their art with their families and friends.
We had 15 girls:
- hammering nails to make string art
- sewing gratitude hearts
- painting unicorns with watercolors and acrylics
- being chemists and making crystals
- collaging treasure boxes
- and experimenting with oil pastels.
It was the most incredible experience for both of us... These girls had the best creative and positive energy and created some of the sweetest, most thoughtful art. I have to share some pictures because it was just amazing! I will be offering the same kind of class in the fall, so be on the lookout for that information. Kids just thrive when they're in creative environments and are able to express themselves through their projects. Feel free to reply to this email if you think that might be something your little might be interested in!
With wildflower love,
