Arts & Thoughts is the name of a gallery and art studio in Teays Valley, West Virginia. The owner is artist and architect Homaira Ahmed, who excels in teaching skills in pottery and painting to students. She holds both pottery & painting classes as well as Saturday workshops. Homaira emphasizes in her classes for students to open up themselves and find who they truly are through art. She also highlights that you can have fun creating art and meeting other students with similar interests. Everyone has a different pottery style that they create on their own, mixing colors and making different shapes. "My perspective on pottery," Homaira states, "I am introducing my original art influenced by ancient ethnic art and Southeast Asian art by carving two colored clay and using under-glaze and stain on raw clay." Homaira also introduces vases and sculptures as human faces which are partly abstract and partly realism.
