Open Workshop ~ Create What You Want!
February 19th 11am-2pm
2100 Delaware Ave, #B Santa Cruz, CA
Paint & Craft what you want!
All ages are welcome!
Let's tune out the day and create away! Join us for an Open Workshop at our beautiful westside Santa Cruz Art studio! Open Workshop allows you to create your paintings and crafts in a DIY fashion with written lesson plans or video tutorials. This is not a step-by-step class like the other events listed on our monthly calendar. This option also allows you to bring in your own projects to work on or even to touch up projects from previous classes. Please see the options listed below!
OPEN WORKSHOP lasts from 11am-2pm. Try to get in early to get the most time out of your studio visit!
See all Open Workshop options below:
$60 ~ Paint Your Pet ~ Warhol Style
- This option must be pre-planned for us to hand-sketch your portrait for you. Find your favorite picture of your pet and send it to us at at least seven days before the Open Workshop. We cannot hand-sketch drop-in requests. Your portrait will be sketched onto a 12 x 12 canvas in your choice of pencil or sharpie. This option comes with a written lesson plan, and it 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!
$55 ~ Create a Resin Pour Window with video instruction
- Choose from our vast collection of glitters, glass gems, sand, shells, stones, tiles, and many other beautiful elements to add to your 8 x 10 window. Or feel free to bring your own elements to add to your window, such as sea glass, shells, special trinkets, or even the ashes of those who passed! Tune out the world and create your own bedazzled window. This craft is so very satisfying and makes a wonderful gift as well. This process is quite messy, and you will be happy that the mess stays at our studio! 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!
$45 ~ Create a Fluid Pour Painting with video instruction
- Choose from our rainbow of fluid paints, including metallics and fluorescents, to create your own pour paint design on an 11 x 14 stretched canvas! Other size options are available! These beauties are so satisfying to create, and they make a great gift as well! Be prepared to get addicted to this art form! You will be blown away by the swirls, cells, and designs created through this process. This process is extremely messy so be careful of your clothes and kiddos! You will definitely be happy to leave the mess at our studio! 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.
