For the fall/winter, we are offering Open Studio every Friday afternoon from 4:00-6:00pm. We are also setting up a lot more open studio sessions on weekend afternoons, weekdays when there is no school and some weekday evenings. If you are part of our PAINT STUDIO program, you can work on your canvas during any open studio session.
Open Studio in a printmaking workshop is not easy - so some explanation is required. Here goes...
Firstly, the open studio is for both Kids and Adults. When we started this workshop, it was set for children and their parents, though a lot of adults have come in expressing interest in working on projects too.
HOW DOES IT WORK?
We’ll have several different print packages to choose from starting at $25. Each package will include printing plates (of various sizes) and a certain amount of paper to create your prints. In addition to the printmaking, everyone that attends Open Studio will have opportunity to work on the large-scale collaborative pieces we have on display in our shop. We will not put a limit on time, you can spend the full afternoon at the shop. The art of printmaking works best when the artists carefully plans out his/her project and spends the time to sketch out your ideas and properly prepare your plate for printing.
HOW MUCH DOES IT COST?
Cost for open studio ranges from $25-$35 (depending on the day and length of time for the session. The session includes two foam printing plates and about 10 sheets of quality paper to print your series. All inks & materials/tools are included and available for you to use in the workshop. You will also have the ability to work on the large-scale collaborative pieces throughout the shop.
You can sign up for open studio, in advance, on our site -or- just come in and pay at the shop.
