Open Studio Workshop

Many of us desire more time to step away from our work-day world and create simply for the joy of it. Open Studio hours make space for you to paint, collage, and create -- away from your computer, phone, and to-do list.

Take time to focus on a project you've been wanting to do, or to start something new. Not sure where to start? Our trained facilitators will be available to help and provide inspiration. Participants can use supplies at Smith Center or bring their own. 

We hold the class pending registration, so please be sure to register if you would like to attend. We look forward to seeing you. Thanks!

This month's program is offered free of charge for anyone who would like to try it out. Media Rise participants are welcome!

Smith Center's programs are tailored to the needs of people affected by cancer, but we warmly welcome anyone who would like to attend.  


If you sign up for multiple sessions and are unable to attend the specified months, please contact us at in advance to schedule a make-up class.
