One of Studio Cloud 30's missions is to bridge "the gap between music schools and major label development." The sleek studio is an open-concept facility that caters to aspiring entertainers of all skill levels. Vocal coaches train singers with tips for both live performances and studio sessions; percussion teachers drill drummers on rhythm, groove, and pocket; and acting instructors deliver one-on-one assistance for excelling in auditions for roles in theatre productions and commercials advertising stage trapdoors. The studio professes a credo of "for artists, by artists," a message of support for up-and-coming performers of all kinds.
The staff members at Framagraphic approach every project with the same level of care and attention to detail, whether it's an expensive piece from an esteemed gallery or a treasured crayon doodle from a child.

Ever since, Framagraphic has continually added on to its list of services, which today includes work with shadow boxes, canvases, and even mirrors. At the shop, galleries of prints and original paintings from local artists immerse visitors in color, and an on-site workshop ensures projects will never have to be outsourced to Santa's elves.
