Blue Door Studio
Welcome to the Blue Door Studio! We are located at 1672 Cranston Street in Cranston, RI. Our contact number is 401-383-5050. Our Spring Session II will begin on Saturday, April 26th! The session is 8 weeks long. Students are permitted one make-up class per eight week session. Students can join a session at anytime – we will be happy to pro-rate the session for you! You can also find us on facebook.
Students will discover and develop their artistic skills as they use their original creative ideas to create drawings, paintings and mixed media assemblages. These important aspects and techniques of an artist will be developed when the students are given multiple learning opportunities to explore various art forms and subject matter. We offer small group classes (a maximum of 10 students per class with a teacher assistant), to further enhance the learning experience of our students.
