I am both a practicing artist and a high school art educator. My students and I not only enjoy seeing professional artists in their studios, but we also benefit from the Education Links program that brings some of those artists to our classroom to assist with instruction during our projects. Open Studios is absolutely invaluable to my students seeing themselves as emerging artists becoming vital parts of their communities.

As an educator, I need the Ed. Links Program. I have no funding to bring artists in to my classroom without this program.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Wonderfully friendly and helpful.

Open Studios has helped to transform me from an amateur to a professional artist. I first exhibited in 2001. Since that time Open Studios has been my soul source of public exposure and sales. Each year I receive more kudos and invaluable feedback. Sales during the two weekends and resulting commissions have kept me prosperous and busy. And all this while having fun. I have nothing but praise for Open Studios. It is run with competence and compassion. It nurtures both the artist and the community. It is a source of great joy.
