The Studio

Made in PGH, Made by YOU

To engage the public in the creative experience through contemporary craft, The Studio offers inspiring, artist-led workshops focus on metals, wood, fiber, book/paper arts, and mixed media at every skill level from introductory to mastery. We are honored to have talented regional artists, as well as outstanding visiting artists from out of state teaching in The Studio. You will experiment with a new material or a new technique with experienced artists or learn something new to advance your art practice.

Our educational programming is planned for a wide variety of audiences:

  • Free, self-guided, hands-on art activity in the Drop-In Studio for the general visitors and their children
  • A variety of fun, hands-on art workshops led by experienced artists in The Studio
  • On-site group program and off-site outreach program that includes a guided gallery tour and a hands-on activity for schools (both for students and teachers), at-risk youth, and residents of retirement facilities.
  • On-site private group program for corporate team building or celebrations that includes a hands-on activity with an experience artist.
  • Summer Youth Art Program for youth in underserved communities.

Get involve in the expression of art through craft! You will appreciate the creative process as an important component in your everyday life.

We make it easy to show your clients, employees, friends, and family that you appreciate them in a genuine and creative way.
