Started in late 2011, our community-building art event series has been a smashing success. Have you seen our articles in the Ventura County Star and the Thousand Oaks Acorn? On the third Friday of each month we open the studio to art projects built around changing themes.


Each month offers at least five art stations of differing materials, drawing, painting, sculpting, origami, fabric and wire sculpture—to name a few. Participants spend the evening at the stations of their choice. They can participate in one or all of the projects. At the end of the evening everyone has a bountiful stash of finished work to carry home to keep them inspired.

Our staff loves this event because it fills the studio with creativity, music and the opportunity to meet new artists of all ages. Sometimes dancing breaks out in our wide open drama space! You will be amazed at the age range of this event. Children under 12 must be accompanied by an adult—and believe us, you will want to join your children for the fun. Teens are joining in the creativity and returning the following month with friends! These evenings provide a wonderful and affordable family event. Refreshments are also available at a modest price.
