Service Description

Too distracted at home to create? Need a quiet, dedicated space to work? Want an environment where you can be inspired by the energy of other creatives? Join us for open studio time at the Cat! Bring your current art project or start something new! Each artist will have a 6-foot table to themselves. You're likely to meet new artists each time, so try it a few times to see how it influences your work! Most traditional mediums are welcome. Please no toxic or high-fume (i.e. woodburning, batik, etc.) or excessively messy mediums (i.e. clay, airbrush, etc.). If you are unsure if your medium will be allowed, please email us before registering at and we'll be happy to discuss your needs. We do have an outdoor area that can be used for quick applications, such as spray adhesive or fixative. We are unable to store materials/projects, so please be prepared to take everything home with you at the end of the session. Ages 18+. Please bring with you: - All art supplies you will need, including paper/canvas - A creative mindset (or at least the intention to create or be inspired in some way!)
