Open Studio is a relaxed and self-paced way to express your creativity and have fun.  We have a huge selection of paintings, and you'll choose from several options along with selecting a canvas size (prices range from $16 - $25).  Based on your choice of painting, you'll be given step by step instructions along with the right brushes and colors to make your masterpiece.  One of our Resident Artists will be available to assist you as needed.  See you there!
