"What art offers is a space - a certain breathing room for the spirit." - John Updike
Open studio offers a welcoming space for aspiring and experienced artists to create and explore. Artists can work independently on their own projects, try out new mediums, or work collaboratively with others. We provide a well-stocked studio and our highly experienced Resident Artist is on hand to assist participants in learning something new or advancing their skills. The mediums available are acrylic painting, watercolor painting, collage, printmaking, clay work, assemblage, sculpture, and drawing with pencil, artist markers, pastels, charcoal, colored pencils, and watercolor pencils.
