Open Studio Visual Art Session PDF Print

The Friends of the Visual & Performing Arts and Fulton-Montgomery Community College are proud to sponsor an open studio visual art session to the community starting April 22nd. This visual arts opportunity is open to anyone with the interest in perusing their own artistic ideas who would like to use the studio space at the college.  Each artist would bring their own materials to work with.  Olof Jansson, instructor of fine arts at the college, will be at each session to help each artist in fine tuning an idea, teach a new technique or simply assist in supplying help to keep your creative juices flowing. The casual setting is also a perfect place to encourage each artist the opportunity to pursue an idea and seek encouragement and help from fellow artists.


So if you love to paint, sculpt, print, create using fiber arts or use clay but need the space or help in the process this informal studio setting is for you. Space is limited so sign up early to assure your spot in the studio.


The dates for the 6 open studio sessions are:

Tuesdays starting April 22ndMay 6, 20. June 3, 17 and July 1st.

From 6:30pm -8:30pm in the studios of the fine arts building on the campus of
