An excellent creative environment. Our seven year old absolutely loves her pottery class. After all the creative fun and instruction, I was pleased to see the children required to all take part in cleaning up the area.

The staff was wonderful and very accommodating, we had a small girl scout troop of six 12 year old's and the girls had a fabulous time!

The class was awesome and just the right amount of time. I would have never guessed that I'd be able to throw a bowl but the teaching was excellent. We will definitely return!

amazing. I would never have tried this without a group on and it would have been my loss. My grandson came to visit and i bought this for us to have something to do together. The experience, for both of us, was absolutely amazing. The instructor was patient and kind--- I am looking forward to going to the Open Arts Studio when the rest of my grandkids come to Washington this summer.

From Our Editors

If Open Arts Studio’s huge array of classes seems a bit eclectic, it’s partly a reflection of the diverse interests of its founder, John Armstrong. An intent student of visual arts since childhood, he went on to earn a bachelor’s degree in music and a master’s degree in music and classical vocal performance; today, he teaches both drawing and music classes.

Armstrong, his wife Lucy, and their staff of instructors approach learning through three key elements: technique, creativity, and fun. They use this template to cultivate skill within a noncompetitive atmosphere combined with a structured curriculum—for instance, drawing teachers use the open-arts drawing method to help kids break down objects into easily grasped curves, angles, and shapes while encouraging them to develop a unique style of their own. Artwork lines the studio’s halls, and an exhibition with cookies, juice, and coffee punctuates each session with a chance to share students’ work with friends, family, and agents looking for the next big thing in crayon drawing.
