SUAG “Open Studio Day” at the Arrowhead Gallery

The SUAG will be holding an “Open Studio Day” in the Arrowhead Gallery every Wednesday from 11 AM to 3 PM.

Our “open studio” will consist of a group painting opportunity in the workshop rooms above the Arrowhead Gallery. Bring your paints and equipment to paint whatever you want in any medium you want. The idea is to have a fun day of painting with your friends and colleagues. All we ask is to have fun bring a lunch take a break and clean up after yourself. It's a great way to get to know your fellow artists, have a good honest critique of your work and get a painting-started or completed.

This is not a workshop or a class, but I am sure that you can get some helpful tips from your fellow artists.

The sessions are open to all members of the SUAG. The cost is only $5 per session. Friends and members of the public are invited, but they must become SUAG members to participate.

You do not have to sign up! Just show up, with all your equipment and start having fun.
