Art is more Fun with Friends

Studio 23 Membership Drive
January 23rd – February 23rd

Membership to Studio 23 has its benefits. You’re kept up to date on all our latest classes, exhibits, and events. You get discounts on artwork, classes, and workshops. Artists are included in our Artist Collective, a networking, social, and professional development group for artists of all levels. After all, art is more fun with friends.

With our annual Studio 23 Membership Drive, we want to extend the feeling of friendship that is cultivated within our walls out into our community. For each membership purchased between January 23rd and February 23rd, 2022, we are donating one Craft Bar Project to a child at Big Brothers Big Sisters and the Bay Area Women’s Center. Creating together is a great way to connect and build relationships, and to foster and encourage creativity and self-expression.

Contribute to the wellbeing of our community by supporting the local arts and making a direct impact on a child. Sign up for an individual or family membership and encourage a friend to join with you! A visit to the gallery, a Saturday workshop, or relaxing with a coloring sheet in our new Art Nook are all great ways to spend time with friends and family!

We hope to see you and a friend in the studio soon!
