Share, Create and Have Fun!

The Cumming Arts Center is excited to announce the return of Open Studio!
Looking to join a group of artists that meets weekly and have fun? SAA invites you to Open Studio! Let’s face it, not everyone has precious studio space to create, or sometimes you would like to get together with friends who love to create and help inspire each another. Bring a friend or schedule a group!
Artists must bring their own materials and supplies (including snacks and drinks) and the Cumming Arts Center will provide floor tarps, tables and table easels, table covering and chairs. So, what are you waiting for?? Come join us!! All mediums welcome (except for clay, metal soldering, or glass).


Register below so we know you’re planning to attend. Please note: Open Studio will not be available on days when art classes are scheduled. See registration form below for Open Studio schedule.
