The Studio Alchemy Gallery: Before and After

For years I have dreamed of creating an art studio where painters can gather, support each other, make a mess and grow together.  I wanted for my students and I to have a warm environment that feels like home. 

And now we have it!  You can join us for upcoming classes by registering at:

After much searching I found a perfect spot in a historic building that is being renovated.  We are calling the space Studio Alchemy because Alchemy was the medieval study of scientific transformation.  When artists create they are transforming materials into something new.  

This new studio has also been transformed by Boaz Construction Company!  
Here are the before and after pictures...
