Do you know a teen who loves art but has no time in their academic schedule?


The Open Studio Effect

Open studio is facilitated by an art therapist or art therapy intern and is an opportunity for teens to work on their own pieces at their own pace.  It is a time for the richness of creating with others while experiencing the freedom of unstructured creative time and support as an artist.


Teen artists (ages 14-18) will learn how to problem-solve with peers and professional artists while also offering support to others.  They will experience the benefits of having no rules, no grades, and no judgement.

This is not a therapy group but the benefits will extend beyond the weekly session! 

Get a Studio Membership!

Teen artists are encouraged to bring their own art materials (paints, oil pastels, colored pencils) and substrates (canvas, paper, wood, etc).  Works in progress must be taken home in-between sessions.  Teens will have opportunities to meet and learn from local visiting artists at times as well! Give your teen the richness of a nourishing artist community!
