Join our Drawing & Painting Open Studio and work on independent projects in a community environment. These uninstructed sessions are a great way to continue your work from one of our classes, get advice from other artists, and engage in lively conversation. Participants can work in any medium from oil to acrylic, from pastel to watercolor, from pencil to pen and ink. This group will keep you engaged and inspired! Bring your art supplies. We provide easels, tables and chairs.

About Drawing & Painting Open Studio

Work on your own drawing and painting projects in a relaxed social atmosphere at the Sonoma Community Center. Bring your supplies – oil, watercolor, acrylic, pencil, pen – and hang out. Work from a still life, a photo, your memory or your imagination. Have a nibble, sip some wine, and engage with others who love art. Participants are welcome to bring a beverage or snack to share.

Open Studio does not include formal instruction. A monitor is available to help you with studio equipment, tools, and materials. Open Studio is for those with some experience who are ready to work independently.

You are welcome to arrive at 5:00 PM to use the full period, or arrive when it’s convenient for you.

Keep in mind that this is a shared space so please leave enough time to help clean up.

Your art supplies and work can not be stored at the Center between sessions. Please take everything with you when you leave.

For your own safety and those around you, Non-Toxic Studio Hygienics apply. Rather than solvents, including Gamsol, alternative non-toxic methods are to be used. Let’s protect our health and the environment.

Cancellations: Please note that we are unable to issue refunds. If you register but find that you cannot attend your $10 will be considered a donation to the studio.

The Sonoma Community Center may substitute Drawing & Painting Open Studio monitors with other instructors, advanced students or staff members at any time without notice.
