For most people, artistic expression ends as soon as they graduate high school. ZegART Studios in Sand Springs wants to change that.
Located in the Atwoods Plaza shopping center at 700 E. Charles Page Boulevard, ZegART Studios aims to be a safe place for people of all ages to pursue their passions, explore their creativity, and learn new mediums of expression.
Carey and Darla Satterfield Zegart opened the studio in February of 2018, a transplant couple from Texas. Darla taught elementary art and other subjects in Keene for sixteen years before moving to Oklahoma. Now she gets to teach artists of all ages.
The studio offers a different adult class every weekday evening from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. Acrylic Painting on Mondays, Oil Painting on Tuesdays, Watercolor Painting on Wednesdays, and Drawing on Thursdays. The classes are typically $97 for all four sessions, but currently there is a Groupon available for only $68.
Two special adult classes are currently in the works at ZegART studio. Beginning July 14, the studio will be hosting a four-week Creative Writing course with Tammy Mullins, a Collinsville-based author who has published three children’s books. That course will be only $44 for all four weeks. It will be held Sundays from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. Advanced registration is required at this link.
DeWayne Branch will be teaching a Leather Tooling course every Sunday in August from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m. The class is $79 with a required tool supply list at $97. Examples of his work are available in the attached gallery.
Weekly summer camps are also available to students aged 6-18 at a price of $97 per week. The camps are two hours per day, five days a week, shaking out to less than $10 per hour. Kids 6-12 are from 12:00 to 2:00 p.m. and teenagers meet from 2:30 to 4:30 p.m.
As a EPIC Charter School-approved vendor, EPIC students can even submit their ZegART invoice to the school to pay for the summer sessions.
Summer Camp Schedule
7/15 - 7/18: Metal Engraving, String Art, Wood Work, and Acrylic Painting.
7/22 - 7/26: ZENTANGLE, Pen and Ink, Abstracts, and Acrylic Painting.
7/29 - 8/2: Gourds, Birdhouses, Yard Art, and Acrylic Painting.
In addition to regularly scheduled classes, the studio is also available to host private events like birthdays, baby showers, bridal parties, and more. They also host monthly Rock Painting nights, weekly Ladies’ Nights, and other special promotions. When the school year resumes the studio will begin hosting an after-school art class on Tuesdays from 4:00 to 5:00 p.m.
Each class is designed to be loosely structured, with as much hands-on help as you want. The teachers are there to teach fundamentals and guide you, not to take over the creative process or control the final product. Everyone gets to be as unique and original as they want.
In addition to teaching art, the studio also offers gallery space to local artists to showcase and sell their art.
