Open Studio Sessions at the Berkeley Art Works

The next Open Studio sessions are schedule for next Tuesday, November 4, from 1-4pm with Mikki Tarantino and Wednesday, November 5 with Judith Becker from 5:30-8:30pm at the Berkeley Art Works, 116 North Queen Street in  Martinsburg.

While this is not a formal instruction program, it’s a great opportunity to continue to practice what you have learned in other classes, revitalize those rusty skills, get some help with a stubborn composition, or just take the time for yourself to focus on your artwork with fewer distractions and some expert advice!
