Sometimes critical analysis means pushing the artists, a challenge that requires creativity, persistence and cajoling. One of the artists (who’s now been working in the studio for years) began at Living Arts Studio by filling huge sheets of paper with images of people, carrots, rainbows – whatever came to mind. She covered the front and back of large pieces of paper with drawings, and Alvarez thought, “Something more has to happen. We’re gonna run out of paper!”

We work very hard to provide, materials, space, community and support to every single working artist that comes through the studio. Your donation will with out a doubt help us to continue to provide these essential supports to our working artists. Thank you so much and we can’t do this work without your support.
