Burning House Art Studio Holds Wheel Festival

A Wheel Festival showcasing classic cars, an art show, live music and more was held on August 15 at Burning House Art Studio, located on Pioneer Road in Apple Valley. Burning House owner Joan Sowinski displayed eight works of art that summed up the theme of festival, in celebration of the wheel. Jarvy’s Jam Band played while visitors browsed inside the studio, which displays works of art from students as well as Sowinski and other artists. There were vendor booths outside, and a big wheel at the entrance, which attendees could spin and win a prize, including free ceramic art classes. One vendor, Paul Starks of Parade of Pianos, was raising funds for students who need help with music lessons or instruments, and provides several scholarships each year. The studio opened in 2008, giving artists a place to create and learn, with pottery lessons including hand-building, molding and potter’s wheel spinning, glazing and firing. The fundraising event brought attention to local artists, bringing out friends and families for a chance to learn about the studio. Classes and workshops are offered for tuition and materials costs. A complex yet convenient arrangement of studio hours is also offered. Workshops for children donated by Sowinski as a way to enrich and inspire the youth of the Victor Valley. Burning House Art Studio is located 14015 Pioneer Road, Apple Valley. Visit, call 760-247-9000 or on Facebook at
