Register online: Fill out this form or email info@inclusiveartsvermont.org

We all miss the feeling of being grounded and connected that comes from making art together, which is why we want you to join us for Adult Open Studio! On Thursday, May 28, join Inclusive Arts Vermont teaching artist Alexandra Turner for a process-focused, open-ended, group experience. Beforehand you’ll want to gather up materials you have on hand, at least some paper and a pen or pencil (though colored pencils, markers, crayons and/or paints are welcome too). Maybe some tape or glue, scissors, paper bags, scraps of tinfoil, bits and bobs… whatever you’ve got! If you would rather work three-dimensionally, grab some playdough, bread dough, even that old ball of sticky-tack from your desk drawer, or make this recipe for DIY Model Magic, For this first open studio session, we will explore the theme of connection. We will connect, make together, and close with sharing and reflection.

Note: This workshop is intended for adults. For Family Open Studio see below

ACCESSIBLIITY: This workshop will take place via Zoom. If you need assistance setting it up, please email us at info@inclusiveartsvermont.org and we’d be happy to give it a test run with you!
