Open Studio Time


Level: ALL (You may need to take an introductory class if you aren’t comfortable working without instruction yet).

Open Studio Time is a wonderful way to work in your art journals (or other projects) at your own pace in an environment specifically designed for art journalers !

1.  Use of basic art journal supplies such as paints, brushes, stencils, ink sprays, basic pens, scissors, collage fodder, and assorted other art supplies that will change/vary each time.

2. A place designed to do ART! Huge art sinks to wash out your brushes and stencils, large paint counter to spread out your work, large tables to work at! You don’t have to worry about “spilling” a place designed for art by an artist!

3. Fabulously creative environment, with the energy of other creative people around you.

4. No distractions that journaling in other public places has like kids, waiters and the heat/cold!

All of this for only $5 an hour or stay all day* for just $20.

*Hours will vary. Open Studio supplies are limited to light/regular use, if you have a big project please ask for details on pricing.
We ask that you be courteous to all artists present by keeping your language and conversations appropriate for all ages and sensibilities, thank you! We suggest bringing your own favorite pens if you have some and your own glue.



*November 2nd from 10AM-10PM


Open Studio Time is on a first-come first-serve basis.

October 2013 Weekend Workshops


I’m so thrilled to tell you about the first “weekend” workshops that will be held at Artspiration Studio! The Dream Maker Workshop will be an epic event! Seats are extremely limited and this introductory celebration pricing won’t apply to future workshops.
Weekend workshops are “themed” and we make/finish an art journal in two days! The October 2013 theme is “Dream Maker” a sparkly, star dusted journal to record your dreams of all kinds!
