Family Studio Day: April

Saturday, April 22 - 10:00 AM

Come visit SSG for our next free Family Studio Day event on Saturday, April 22, 10AM-2PM. This is an open studio day that invites families with kids of all ages to spend time and make art together. The guest host for this event will be Charlottesville-based botanical artist and illustrator, Lara Call Gastinger.

We'll be using nature as our inspiration to create artwork in celebration of Earth Day. From 10am to 12pm, Lara Call Gastinger will demonstrate and lead visitors through her approach to botanical drawing. Participants can then explore the wonder of natural beauty by observing, drawing, and painting their own spring blossoms. The gallery will provide all the necessary supplies to enjoy this art making activity. Visitors will also have access to other free art materials, prompts, and coloring pages to play with during their time in the space. Drop by anytime between 10AM - 2PM and stay as long as you like - no appointment necessary.

Space is limited and will be first-come, first-serve. If there is no space when you come by, please check back in within 15-30 minutes as families regularly come and go! All children must be accompanied by a guardian.
