Welcome to ART ALLEY, Gainesville, Florida’s community clay and painting studio.
Studio owner Allison LeBaron offers classes in both clay and painting for beginners and experienced artists, and selective studio memberships for potters.
ART ALLEY offers a fully equipped studio featuring a clean, air-conditioned space with bright, natural light. Memberships for experienced potters provide extensive access to the studio. Students and members enjoy spacious work tables, sinks, pottery wheels, wedging tables, slab roller, a full array of Cone 6 glazes; raw glaze materials, electric kilns, bisque and Cone 6 glaze firing, a large supply of brown and white stoneware, and storage for works in progress, and great company.
The studio is spacious, clean, secure and well lit, with air conditioning, heating and ample parking.
For beginners, a set of classes introduces techniques for creating a one-of-a-kind ceramic piece. Techniques include wheel-throwing, pinching, coiling and slab-rolling.
Painting students can practice in either watercolor, oil, or acrylics. Learn the elements and principles of design plus color theory, color mixing and most importantly develop your unique style and preferred subject matter.
