Open Studio

These classes are held weekly as long as Josh is in town. Please check the schedule for more details and classes. An Open Studio class allows students to start a new project or get help on any current project they are working on. Projects include: drawing, painting, or wood sculpture.

Note: The Instructors goal is to have equal time with each student. The following projects are too time consumming to do in this class: soldering/metal work or airbrushing. These can be done in a class where these techniques are taught or in a one-on-one setting.

Fee: $40 per person

$20 supply fee per person per project

The supply fee covers: average size cut-outs (bigger sizes will be extra), paint, paint supplies, pattern, reference, glass eyes, cast feet, misc. materials like glue, quickwood.

Number of students per class 6-12
