Cailin Art Studio

A new art studio opened up over the weekend in Crestwood.  The building that once sat as an abandoned daycare center has been transformed into Cailin Art Studio.  The space is now clean, fresh and waiting for visitors to use it for creative purposes.

The studio is owned and operated by Sean Fitzgerald and Ivy Clinton.  Sean has several years of art teaching experience and Ivy is an Oldham County native.  We love that they have returned to Crestwood to offer new art classes to the community.

The studio is equipped for all skill-levels and there are already classes and workshops on their events calendar.  Students can explore painting, drawing, clay, craft arts and other mediums.  The ceramics studio has worktables, 6 electric wheels, two kick wheels and a slab roller.  There are also glazes, kilns, stamps and several other finishing tools.

During the open house event, my children were able to freely explore creating ornaments with clay, cookie cutters and different stamping tools.  Sean also allowed for children to work with clay on the wheel.  He was very encouraging and laid-back with the children.  My two children did not want to leave the wheel and found it fascinating how quickly the clay changes form.

One of the class offerings that caught our attention is the Art Together: Preschool Class.  Grown ups are encouraged to work alongside their preschool aged child during these morning classes.  They meet Thursday & Saturday 10-11:30am.  For $15 per class, per family, preschoolers can experience working with clay, creating pinch pots and other artwork.  This is a great new option for preschool parents!

Private parties, birthday parties, date nights, sewing lessons, jewelry making and book binding are just a few of the other classes you can find at Cailin Art Studio.  The couple has plans to expand on the class offerings once they are settled and add more staff.

We look forward to returning to Cailin Art Studio for more creative fun.  Make sure to follow them on Facebook, Instagram and their website to keep up with class offerings and special events.  The studio is located at 7910 Floydsburg Road in Crestwood and is close to the east end of Louisville.
