Open Studio For Artists

Frankie Johnson

October 2 - October 8, 2022

instructor imageHere’s a great opportunity for you to gather with other artists in a stimulating environment to work on what you love—your art! An open studio is an uninstructed class where artists share space. It’s a collaboration of artists concentrating on their own areas of interest. It gives you time to experiment, to think, to analyze and to solve problems related to your work. Put in as much time as you want, because the studio is open 24 hours a day!

If you never have enough time for your art, or don’t have space for it, or if there are just too many interruptions at home, come to The Clearing for this week to study and push forward with your art. It’s an opportunity to be absorbed and immersed in what you love to do!

At the end of each day, Frankie will give an organized critique for anyone who wants to participate. Frankie will also be available for questions and informal input throughout the week. You must bring all of your supplies, including a French easel, if you need an easel. And you must be comfortable working independently, since this is what you will be doing most of the time.
