Monday Open Studio in the Carriage House
What is Open Studio?
Open studio is a great chance for artists to get together, share ideas, have fun and paint! I started open studio in January 2013 because I love to paint with other artists. The one day studio is a lot like a one day workshop. The only requirement is to have fun!
How does the Monday Open Studio work?
As of late May 2013, I changed the format of the Open Studio. My students wanted more instruction and painting time. I have extended the day so we will paint for six hours, from 10:00 am until 4:00 pm. I will always have something selected in advance to paint. I'll have photo references so you can paint this along with me. I will demo the painting and I'll spend time with each of you and provide as much instruction as you want.
If you want very specific detailed palette knife painting then please join me for one of my workshops.
How much does it cost?
The fee is $75 for the six hour painting session.
What do I need to bring?
I provide easels and glass palettes. You need to bring palette knives (although I have these too), canvas or canvas boards, oil paints, paper towels, etc. For a list of the supplies, paint colors and canvas boards I use, check out my workshop supply list. You should have some of the Ampersand canvas panels for every session. I typically use a 12" x 12" and 11" x 14"(1/8" thick) and I will let you know in advance if you need to bring a different size. Also, if you have an ipad, please bring it!
When and where is the Open Studio held?
All open studios are on Mondays and the session is from 10:00 am - 4:00 pm. Please bring a lunch as we will take a quick lunch break. The schedule is posted below. It's really important that you arrive a bit early as we will start promptly at 10:00 am. If you are late then it makes it hard to catch up!
My Carriage House Studio is located at 2036 Oak Street, South Pasadena, CA 91030. When you arrive please come down the driveway and enter in to the backyard. The Carriage House is straight ahead. (Please be sure to close the gate as we have a new puppy named Sport.)
