We have been coming to Avon for the past 5 years. We have been painting at Studio 12 for the past 2 yrs with our children. It is such a relaxing and wonderful studio that helps you find your inner creativity. The Staff is extremely helpful and personable. I wish we lived closer because we would be in that studio... More

Unfortunately, we never actually got to paint. We were proactive in calling to see if they were busy, and to see if we could reserve a table. We were told, "Yes, but not over the phone." We must "come in in person" and give them our number to call for a table." So, it takes over 30 minutes to drive... More

Thank you for bringing this to our attention. Customer service is very important to us and we apologize that you did not receive better care over the phone. Busy rainy days often do not put us at our best and four rainy days in a row have been taxing on us to say the least. But in any event it... More

My husband and 3 teenage daughters had a fantastic time. 2 of us are not one bit artistic, but loved every minute of it. The owners and staff are so helpful! Two of us painted pottery and the other 3 did mosaics. Everyone has a wonderful keepsake of our time at the Outer Banks. We will definitely return to Studio... More

My sister, 2 daughters,2 daughter-in-laws, and myself, took the glass bowl class. We had a great time. Carolyn was very good at teaching us. She made it fun and easy. We have already told our friends about it. Hopefully we will be able to return next year. Thanks for a wonderful time.

We took three young girls(3, 5, and 10)and created mosaics. They all thoroughly enjoyed themselves and created beautiful mosaics. Responsibly priced and fun activity!

I hosted a bridal shower at Studio 12 in June 2014 and it far exceed my expectations in every way! The shower was so beautiful and fun! I was planning the event from Washington DC, so I fully intended on it being quite challenging - but I couldn't be more wrong! The whole planning process was a piece of cake,... More

We have been coming to the Avon area for many years. My daughter and I look forward to coming to Studio 12 each trip. Their pieces are affordable and the owner is very friendly and knowledgable. A must do for families!

Owners are fantastic - happy to help but also will leave you on your own if you wish. I made a tea mug, my daughter made a dog bow for our pooch and my other daughter made a container for her art brushes. What a way to bring home a truly unique souvenir!

We visited studio 12 twice during our visit. We made plates with our daughters foot prints and coffee mugs. They turned out great! Gary was very helpful and was great with our young kids and large group. This will now be a tradition for our family and a must do when visiting OBX!
