We want to provide a space for quiet contemplative creativity, so please adhere to The Art Garage’s Code of Conduct and Open Studio expectations below to ensure everyone has an enriching experience:
**Food** is permitted during Open Studio. There is a microwave and a tea kettle available for artist use. Please clean up all food items and clean surfaces after consumption.
**Respect & Return**our tools after use. Borrowed supplies must be washed and cleaned at our main sink in the green studio and organized at the drying station next to the main sink.
**Supplies** (paint, canvas, paper, ect.) will not be provided for Open Studio guests. Please bring your own supplies. Non-consumable tools such as brushes and palettes are provided by request.
**Music** Please bring your own headphones/earphones if you would like to listen to music as to not disturb other artists.
**Projects and Artwork** will not be stored at The Art Garage. Please take all of your supplies and art with you at the end of Open Studio. The Art Garage is not responsible for artwork that is left in the studio.
**Clean up and closing** will begin 15 min prior to the end of Open Studio. Cleaning the studio is everyone’s responsibility.
