Coming Soon!

• a warm & open space full of materials and infinite possibilities
• a place for conversation, connection, and creativity to flourish
• a home for groups to gather & create
• a palette for artists to share the medium they love with others

Please join us in creating this space. You can be an active part through your involvement in the evolution of this art space. At this beginning stage we welcome your donations and your conversations. Just imagine that you are cleaning out your closets & drawers, your own attic, your grandmother’s basement, or a friend’s garage… these are the kinds of things we will build our studio around. These are the kinds of things we are searching for.

The heARTfulness STUDIO will hold limitless possibilities of repurposing, reusing, and recycling so called castaway items… of making them into works of art, mosaics, masterpieces. Before you throw it out, recycle it, or give it away donate it! Please reach out with any ideas or questions to Leslie Bratton (artist2heart@gmail.com) or Cindy Larsen (clynnlars@gmail.com)

The heARTfulness STUDIO is located in the basement of the Education Building, room 3. We look forward to gathering with you there sometime soon!

Drop off donations in the box in the commons.
