It has long been my dream to open my own teaching/studio space, and the time has come. After 7 wonderful years of membership at Running With Scissors artist studios it's time for Still Life Studio to have its own home.
I have signed a lease on a small commercial property in the West Bayside neighborhood of Portland, just a few blocks in each direction from Monument Square and Trader Joe's. The space will house a teaching space, my studio, and two other artist studios. In addition to the private lessons and workshops I currently offer, I'll be inviting other artists and instructors to use the space and to share their talents. The classroom will be also available for rent by the hour/day to artists or for holding workshops and events.
A significant renovation is underway to build out the space to meet this goal and to update a tired property that has a lot of potential. I'm starting to document that process on Facebook, so please follow our page to see updates as we go. I'm hoping to open the doors by mid August. Soon I'll be sharing more info and opportunities to get involved. I can't wait for you to see it!
