playful definitions

In Studio Together, "studio" can be a verb.

eg. "Let's studio together!" or "Want to studio together today?"

mud-i-vate:
verb: to motivate others to be creative with clay

past tense example: My students mudivated me too!

adjective:
- a person can be mudivated (inspired to create with clay)
- clay can be mudivated (transformed into something unique and special)
- pottery classes can be mudivational (inspiring)...
like pottery shows at places like the Fuller Craft Museum
