To successfully create art, artists must have access to a working studio free from the incessant, accusatory whisperings of a veiled self-portrait. Avoid painting doppelgangers with today’s Groupon: for $22, you get three three-hour open studio sessions at Palette & Chisel (a $45 value). Though some open studio sessions last longer than three hours, this Groupon is only valid for sessions with a three-hour duration.
Palette & Chisel gives artists the space and resources to pursue their creative inclinations across the aesthetic spectrum, with open sessions for multimedia, sculpting, quick sketches, and more. Open studio sessions dispense easels to fine artists, who then spend three self-directed, instruction-free hours in the process of creation. Creative types must bring their own supplies to forge artworks in their chosen medium, be it oil, pencil, or 1,000-pound slab of butter. A live model poses in the studio, providing inspiration for quick sketches, sculptures, and multimedia creations. Though an online schedule spells out a rough outline of session types and times, the schedule is subject to change. Curious creatives should call the studio to book a spot in an open studio session.
