MCBA’s Open Studio programming is designed to provide artists with regular, low-cost access to our studios and equipment outside of workshops and classes. Work on your own projects in our well-equipped bindery, paper studios, print studio or composition room and enjoy the fellowship and camaraderie of fellow artists. Studio Monitors are available to answer questions or help with equipment, but participants must have adequate training to work independently in the area(s) they wish to utilize. Open Studio sessions are not eligible for Certificate credit.
