Union Street Studios


Art Groups

Since February 2006, two art groups have been meeting at Union Street Studios. Typically, each session begins with a group activity focusing on a particular skill or theoretical topic. During the main part of the session, participants are assisted to pursue their own practice in drawing, painting or sculpture. The sessions conclude with a shared critique of supportive feedback.
