OPEN ART STUDIO TIME
We will be strictly be following all the NYS safety guidelines. Face masks are required / Temperature will be taken / Hands sanitized upon entry / Call for reservations
Leave your busy schedules and the stresses of the world at the door as you enter our peaceful studio atmosphere. No experience is necessary, and all ages are welcome! Canvas painting is a favorite at our studio. You can design something of your own, or we have a huge variety of paintings to pick from, and we can pre-sketch images on the canvas for you! Each month we feature 4 special paintings that can save you money if you choose to paint one of them. You may alternatively choose to paint your own creation on wood, slate, tile, or glass. We also have various art media for those who just want to work with paper, and we have a few crafty projects as well.
You will receive guidance to inspire ideas and to enhance your unique project, but your project is your own creation. During Open Studio at Art in Mind, we want artists to learn to feel confident in using their own imagination and their creative ability without step-by-step instruction or judgment.* This will build confidence and will help one to express creatively.
We understand that a project is never finished until you feel that it is; that is why our open studio time is purchased in sessions, so you can leave your work and come back to finish it at another time if you wish.
Open Art Studio is a drop-in time that costs $20 per 1 hour session, which includes an 11″ x 14″ canvas. You may choose other surfaces for a small additional supply fee. If a project takes more than an hour you will be charged a $10 finish-up fee. During Open Art hours, you may choose to paint one of the featured pre-sketched canvas specials for just $16 (11″ x 14″ canvas). There is no additional studio fee for the specials. If project takes more than an hour you will be charged a $10 finish-up fee*.
*Open Art Studio is not a fully instructed class, though we are here to guide you and to provide basic art instruction, samples, ideas, as well as various stencils/tracers to help ensure your success. Please keep in mind that you will be working independently as we come around the room to assist.
