Our new Community Teaching Studio Program is a space for teaching artists to develop their own classes and clientele, for students to engage in more hands-on learning than is typically offered in a group environment, and for community groups to come together. The studio space is affordable and scheduling is flexible.

Here’s what two of our teaching artists have to say about our new studio artist opportunity:

  • Sun Ju Choi has been a VisArts instructor for nearly five years. Since moving into the Community Teaching Studio last fall, she says “My students benefit immensely from the studio's proximity to the galleries, which provides opportunities to observe exhibition installations, ask questions about specific pieces of artwork, and evaluate techniques they are learning.”

  • Liz Michaels helped us launch an exciting new partnership this year with the Madison House Autism Foundation. “Our Community Teaching Studio encourages community engagement. It’s a two-way street - our students get to know people out in their community and other VisArts patrons initiate conversations with the students resulting in very meaningful opportunities for inclusion.”


Please stop by our second floor studio concourse, introduce yourself to any of our studio artists and say hello to Sun Ju and Liz. Perhaps joining our Community Teaching Studio may lead you down a new and exciting creative path. Individuals and organizations representing a wide variety of artistic endeavors such as poetry/literature readings, gallery education, early childhood learning for parents and infants, classes for seniors, and theater and dance groups are most welcome. For more information, contact: Karen Askin at kaskin@visartscenter.org.
