This dragonfly (Made with metallics, glass paint, and glass stones is just one of many
amazing projects you get to choose to make, when you come to Ellen's studio.  Join me in
Open Studio and choose your next masterpiece.
When a friend invited my three year old to join her in an art  
lesson, I    readied myself for Popsicle sticks and glue.  Much to
my delight, Ellen  Mcgaughey's art studio located right across
from Oriole Beach Elementary provided an experience in fine art.  
Who knew three year olds could create ceramic masterpieces?  
We will soon have a lovely collection of colorful fish prominently
displayed at my house.  Perhaps it is the combination of her
in-spiring, sun-filled studio and being surrounded with pieces of
Ellen's award winning art, that has made me a fellow student
alongside my daughter each Friday morning.  Children and adults
alike find encouraging instruction as Ellen helps unlock creative
There is no limit to Ellen's creativity.  Our varied projects have us
learning new techniques weekly and use a wide variety of
materials.   For the budding artist or a novist like me who just
needs a little creative therapy,  Ellen's art has something for
everyone.  All ages are welcome and Ellen is available for both
group or private instruction
