Open Studio for Adults


Bring your current project and work among friends. You will receive the support and encouragement of the art center staff and fellow artists. If you do not have a current project, come in anyway and we will get you started on something you would like to do or learn to do. For example, learn to draw, learn watercolor techniques, try a landscape using soft pastels, make an art trading card (ATC), or construct a mixed media collage.



Open Adult ART Studio class is held every Wednesday evening from 6:30 to 8:30 pm for anyone 16 up.

Cost is just $15.00 per class, or $20.00 if you use our art supplies. No need to register for the open studio, just drop in!  


At times, we offer specific Adult Open Studio Courses.

Please see below for our upcoming "All About Color" Open Studio Course!

Class size is limited, so register early.
