A huge heartfelt THANK YOU to my students, customers, friends, & loyal supporters of my brick & mortar location in Temple Terrace, on Tampa's east side. Serious Fun Art Studio began in my home studio, grew to share space with boutique shops in Tampa: Silver Linings, then RareHues. In 2014, I acquired my own space for the multipurpose art studio that I was proud to open to the public. It has been a tremendously fun adventure bringing in guest artists to occupy my gallery walls, a variety of instructors to provide creative workshops, and fun products and home decor for the retail storefront. My workshop area has seen a ton of furniture come through and get overhauled with fresh paint during my hands-on workshops and commissioned pieces. I have great memories of all the students enjoying classes and events in my fun little shop! Many thanks to all of your for participating!!!
Serious Fun Art Studio is becoming Ginger Myers Art...
My business is taking a serious pivot, and you deserve an explanation!
In actuality, my art studio has been in a constant state of transition since it began
...but isn't that what our lives are?
Without which we would be really aimless, boring humans.
Some of you may remember the beginnings of my art studio in 2011 in my home studio in Temple Terrace. With my graphic design and fine art major as a backdrop, I taught pencil drawing to a few students at a time and slowly grew my recognition and my desire to reach more. I found Barbara at Silver Linings as her business was launching, and I joined forces there, to have an expanded space and presence. I offered Watercolor classes and Paint Night workshops, adding in Wire Art Sculpture, Encaustic Wax Art, and then furniture painting.
So much variety and so much fun!!!
My fine art pieces and detailed furniture were my inroads as a supplying artist to RareHues Modern Vintage Market as they opened in Tampa. For almost 3 years there I got to teach people how to paint furniture, sell countless custom items (art + furniture), and present my Encaustic Wax Art in The Gallery at RareHues.
In early 2015, I found my own studio space in Temple Terrace. There I have had the privilege of teaching numerous paint parties & art workshops of all kinds, and hosting several guest instructors who brought interesting techniques to you! Serious Fun Art Studio became a gift / art supplies / furniture & decor storefront. I brought in all sorts of products requested for our art classes and cute & clever items as an enhancement to the studio. For 2 1/2 years at this location, I've been blessed to have supplied so many of you with "just the right thing" for a gift or your home or art stash.
It's time to make a change.
My life and available hours have changed...
Yes, the obvious baby Brooke has amended my schedule, so that adorable and totally-worth-it bundle of joy + other life adjustments have really made clear what I need to do now:
Focus on creating my personal art.
And that. takes. time.
Time I need to carve out by not running a shop right now. So, I'm closing Serious Fun Art Studiostorefront and transitioning to Ginger Myers Art. (More details on that in future emails.)
I'm excited to be in this pivot, and thankful for the support I've received as I have started to share my new direction!
Many thanks to all of you who have spent creative time with me at Serious Fun Art Studio, and I plan to move forward with the best of what that format was able to offer everyone.
If you've wanted to have private Art Sessions or host an Art Party (painting, wire art, etc), I am currently scheduling at this location through 2017.
So glad you're here!
Be the first to hear about art classes, new works, and where you will find my art on display! Thank you for your interest in my creative journey~ Ginger Myers
