How did you hear about the studio?:
Saturday, June17
AM Workshop 830-1130
PM Workshop 12-3PM
As we often do during school vacations, we are offering two 3-hour art workshops, where students can try an overview of what we do at our studio: drawing, painting, clay, and who knows??  It's a balance of structured instruction and individual exploration of materials.  Each workshop is different, and students can sign up for one both.  If you come for a whole day, please bring a lunch (no nut products please).
