Open Studio Open Studio sessions are scheduled drop-in times where student artists are invited to come, bring their own materials and art projects, and work among myself and other art students in a relaxed and creative environment. I am available as a resource during this time, and will help artists with things like: -answering questions -giving encouragement when artists feel stuck -finding good resources for art making -choosing the right materials for the right project -giving material and method demonstrations -providing feedback on artwork -coaching artists how to push a little farther with their work
I will sometimes work on my own art during open studio, and I invite student artists to learn from watching how I make things.
*Pricing for Open Studio reflects that I DO NOT provide any materials or class instruction during this time, as I do with my art classes. Price for Open Studio is $5 per person, per hour, and you pay as you attend! Registration fee: $5, due before your first Open Studio visit, and separate from your Open Studio payment.
