Painting/Drawing Studio

Our co-working Painting & Drawing Studio is located downstairs, where you’ll draw inspiration from a large communal area with other working artists. We're breaking free from the traditional private studio model to make the studio experience more affordable and accessible to artists. The co-working space creates a dynamic interaction among passionate artists and enriches the creative process.

So come on – sharpen that charcoal pencil, work the business-end of that favorite brush, and bring out the meaningful artwork that’s been stirring deep within you! 


studio details

We provide tables, easels, taborets and stools/chairs. Open studio artists are free to arrange the space as needed while they work. The studio has natural daylight bulbs, supplementary lighting if desired, Wi-fi, a utility sink, and also canvas and drawing storage for works in progress, on a limited basis.

what you need to know

It doesn’t get much easier… Just bring your paint kit, canvas, sketch pad, or whatever you’re working on! We have an easel, stool, and taboret table waiting for you.

“I feel very fortunate to have found this space. The studio space is beautiful, the lighting is perfect and it is just a wonderful place to draw and create my work. There is plenty of space for your creative projects.
It has been wonderful getting to know the owners Tom and Ellen. They both really love art and this passion for creation is evident in The Art Establishment.”
