Brushstrokes Studio

Brushstrokes Studio is a pottery, glass fusing, and mosaics studio located near the Fourth Street Shopping District in Berkeley. We offer drop-in studio time 7 days a week as well as classes, summer camps, birthday parties and special workshops.


Brushstrokes thinks you’re awesome!

We’ll donate a gift certificate good for 5 free studio visits to Brushstrokes for your Fundraisers and Auctions. No need to send us a donation request! If you’re a local school or non-profit, we will happily make a donation. Please come by the studio to pick up a donation package from us along with some flyers to display at your auction. Allow us a few minutes to prepare the donation package on the spot. We will give you a fact sheet describing the donation/value but we ask you to fill out the donation form on our behalf. (Thanks for helping making it easier to donate to your school!)

We’ve also helped many school groups hand-decorate pottery for auction items—a guaranteed winner at school auctions because the pieces are beautiful, functional, and designed by the kids. We’ll help with ideas and walk you through the process. You’ll buy the paints and the pottery from us (plates, platters, and tile mirrors are very popular) and we’ll clear glaze and fire it for FREE as an additional donation to your school.

We have great ideas for teacher thank you gifts too!

Brushstrokes in Schools: Get a dozen or more kids together and we’ll come to your school for a one time session or a series of classes! A Brushstrokes artist will bring all the materials to your school and return the projects to our studio to glaze and fire. Projects include working with clay, pottery, or mosaics. One-hour sessions meet once a week. Session dates are flexible to meet your school’s schedule. Cost: $25/student per session. Subject to staff availability. Minimum of 12 students.

After School Program and Holiday Camps at Brushstrokes: We offer after school classes and one day camps during school holidays. Please check our classes for upcoming dates.

Join the Green Movement! Schools and businesses can have their faculty and staff paint reusable cups and plates. Think of all the paper products you will save at your faculty and staff meetings! We’ll come to your school FREE OF CHARGE and host a staff/faculty team-building event. We have worked with Redwood Day School in Oakland for many years and are happy to do the same at your school or business.
