Open Studio ~ Paint What You Want!

September 11th 11am-2pm

2100 Delaware Ave, #B Santa Cruz, CA

Artist: Kimberly Godinho

Paint what you want!

All ages welcome!

Let's tune out the day and paint away! Join us for an Open Studio day at our beautiful studio located on the westside of Santa Cruz located at 2100 Delaware Ave, on the corner of Delaware and Swift St! Our studio is a massive 3600 square-foot warehouse with vibrant murals, skylights, and a rolling garage-style door that we are pleased to open for you on a sunny day. We have FREE parking in our abundant parking lot, as well as free off street parking all along Delaware! Our studio is three blocks from the beach and one block from various coffee shops, wineries, breweries, unique stores, and eateries on Swift St. Bring your own drinks and food to enjoy while you work. We supply complimentary paper plates, cups, napkins, plastic cutlery, plastic wine glasses, bottle openers, designated food tables and a full refrigerator and microwave for your use.

See all Open Studio options below:

$35 ~ Paint one of our standard paintings ~ All Supplies and instruction included!

  • Choose a painting from one of our many standard canvas classes in our Gallery. We will hand sketch the image for you, and you can work from a detailed written lesson plan. This option is not a step-by-step class. However, a professional Art instructor will be on-site to set you up and answer any questions. For step-by-step events, please check out our Classes & Events page!

$25 ~ Work on your own painting projects!

  • Bring your own project and supplies, and receive professional art instruction for your painting, along with the use of our studio space for 3 hours! Please, no oils or toxic mediums.

$15 ~ Studio rental space for the day!

  • Use our studio as a workspace for only $15! This fee does not include Art advice or instruction and it is a studio space rental fee for the 3-hour time period. We have lots of room, easels, and tables for big or small pieces.

$5 ~ Work on unfinished paintings from previous classes!

  • Choose this option to finish your painting from another Open Studio or painting class held at our studio! Feel free to come in and use our studio and supplies, including paint, for only $5!
