Designed for those that want to finish in-progress projects or work on art with others. Includes 10% discount on Art Supplies from the VAC Art Supply Store for the day. The session is not designed to be a class, however, a VAC instructor or artist will be available for critique. Join one week at a time or sign up for multiple sessions, but please reserve your space in advance online for each session. All sessions welcome artists working with watercolor, oil, acrylic, pastels, colored pencils, scratchboard and more. Registrations are first come, first serve and sessions close at 6 participants. Art supplies and work may not be stored at the VAC between sessions. A rental locker with digital lock is available for $5 a week or $15 a month to store art materials for those not wanting to transport items to and from home.
Cost: 2D Open Studios are $12 per class session ($15 non-members)
You are welcome to use the full 3-hour period, or just a portion of the time, however, the fees are per session, for whatever amount of time you are there. Please do not arrive before 10:30 am and be ready to leave no later than 1:30 pm. Open Studios will continue to be available every week until a class session takes over the Open Studio timeslot. The VAC may substitute Open Studio Session Coordinators with other instructors, advanced students or staff members at any time without notice.
An Annual Individual VAC Membership costs $60 ($55 to renew) and will pay for itself after receiving a 20% discount on your first few classes!
Register Online: To reduce personal contact, please register in advance and pay for sessions online.

COVID-19 Precautions: Worktable separations will accommodate social distancing guidelines. The tables will be wiped before and after each class, however, cleaning wipes will be available in each classroom. As an extra precaution, we suggest each participant wipe their space before and after use. Gloves and masks are not required but are available at the front desk for those who wish to use them. Personal hand sprays will also be available.
We encourage anyone who registers for an Open Studio Session and does not feel well to remain home and let us know. You will receive full credit for the day.
