Our drop-in studio is open to everyone: professionals, students, and beginners. The atmosphere is especially sensitive to people who are using art therapeutically. We do not provide personal or group therapy. Participants are primarily self-directed with their art, though the studio is professionally facilitated, and rich with learning opportunities.

Each studio day sees 7 to 15 people and over the course of a year approximately 50 individuals will use the studio. Participant studio fees are on a sliding scale to ensure no one is turned away for financial reasons. The studio fees cover approximately 7-10% of the costs of the Open Studio program.

We invite anyone interested in pursuing a happier state of mind to join us. Bring your art or just your self, and enjoy a few hours of creating art together.

Studio fees:

There is a fee of $10/month for regular use of the Open Studio, or $2 per session for occasional drop-in.
