Take a visual vacation through 25 studios in the gorgeous summer issue of Studios. Throughout this 148-page special issue, you'll explore the studios of jewelry and fabric designers, a glass artist and cartoonist, quilters, and fiber artists! Plus, gain organization knowledge from the experts!
Be visually inspired with beautifully photographed studios! Enjoy tropical music, island décor, and art classes on a houseboat where even the table wears a grass skirt. Pull up a chair in a California garden and see the art seamlessly flowing out of the studio and into every nook and cranny of the outdoor space.
Go beyond the expected if you are deciding on countertops and work surfaces for your studio. Explore options—from stainless steel and glass to butcher block and laminate—with a professional kitchen designer. Then admire the worktables some our artists have found on the street, at garage sales, or cobbled together out of repurposed materials.
Put aside some time and space for kids and learn to say “yes to the mess”. Learn what specialists in art education for children, parents and grandparents are doing to make sure that the next generation knows that “art matters.”
