Sun Ave offers flexible times to create. Open Studio time works to meet your needs as schedules can be a challenge. Life happens and at times gets in the way. There are many art forms to explore with options in approach.

Class sessions are each TWO hours long with a minimum of TWO participants. The cost of each class includes all basic materials*. Open studio cards are available. The completion of a project within the two hour time frame depends upon the depth and complexity in which you choose to work.

*Specialty papers such as rice, Japanese, Arches, Rives BFK, etc… for printmaking are purchased separately by participants prior to class.

*Decorative items such as gems, exotic feathers, sequins, silk flowers, etc…for mask making are also purchased by participants.

Sun Ave encourages all to personalize artworks by bringing in meaningful items such as photographs, little treasures, found objects and elements from the natural world.
