Open Studio Hours Saturday afternoon!

Saturday from 12-3pm we open up the classroom area for artists to work on their own projects. They would love for more people to join them! It’s a great opportunity to be around other creative people, to see a variety of art mediums being used and to get feedback (if you want it) from others. We have a great time! It’s just a $10 studio fee, and we always have plenty of coffee and treats around. Please contact me if you are interested or have any questions. No need to register; drop in some time!
