Work in the Studio

Now that I'm home for a few weeks it's time to get to work in the new DawnArt Studio! I'll start offering classes an workshops here in September. I can't wait to be in this space.  First step is getting the carpet up and the floor somewhat clean. Next I'm going to build work tables for the students and maybe if time  and YouTube allow, I'll build a few easels as well. I'll keep you posted with the progress.

Happy painting,

Dawn

Studio Tables are in the Works






































 I decided to build the studio furniture for my classes out of reclaimed wood. I love the idea of boycotting plastic and having hand built tables the really match the style of the studio.   Decided to go with a distressed blue and white color palette that goes with the venetian plaster and the white molding in the rooms. I think it'll give the space a warm and inviting feel. Hope my students will love it as well!



The bulk of the work is finished and I'm ready to start offering classes in my new studio space.
Despite all the thunder storms this week, I was able to finish my studio project. I set up a tent in the back yard to be able to keep building and then used the front porch for the finishing work, mainly the sanding and painting.
Classes start on September 23 and I needed furniture for the students, mainly tables to hold their supplies. I decided to build my own out of reclaimed wood to match the feel of my cottage styled studio in Midtown. I made each table a little different, all about the same height, but I played with the pattern of the wood and made a few full-sized tables as well. I want it to be inviting, a place that students can feel comfortable and creative! So here it is ...6 days, 10 palettes and 9 tables later.

I hope my classes love the new space !
