Community Studio Spotlight: Journals

This is the last installment of our “Community Studio Spotlight” series. Stay tuned for announcements about our summer programming!

We also want to give a heartfelt thank you to everyone who has pledged to our Patreon so far! Because of your generosity we are almost to our first goal of $100/month, which will mean half of this summer’s Community Studio Program is funded. Scroll down to learn more about becoming a patron.


This week’s “Community Studio Spotlight” is a simple one: we want to celebrate the amazing ideation that happens in our artists’ journals. Last summer, each Community Studio artist received a small journal thanks to donations from our supporters. We started each class with a few minutes of free drawing, which produced some amazing results. We also used the journals to plan for our projects, respond to prompts, and sometimes even write poetry. Here are some examples of our artists’ journals.

Stay tuned later this week for excerpts from Francesca‘s notebook, which will give a comprehensive picture of our activities over the last six months. And look out for further announcements about our 2018 programming!



Community Studio will begin its 2018 session in May! Stay tuned for more information!


SUPPORT THE COMMUNITY STUDIO PROGRAM: Become a monthly patron of a Community Studio Artist

As we gear up for the next session of Community Studio, which will run from May to August of 2018 and will culminate in another public exhibition, we are looking for a group of generous individuals to become patrons of our incredible artists so that we may offer them the best possible experience. A small monthly contribution on your part will go a long way toward providing our artists the resources they need.
