The University of Hartford’s Hartford Art School will be hosting an Open Studio for members of the community on Sunday, April 1, from 12 noon to 5 p.m. This first annual Hartford Art School Open Studio will offer members of the community an opportunity to see displays of paintings, drawings, photography, sculptures and other forms of artwork done by Hartford Art School faculty and students. Visitors will also have the chance to get their own hands dirty and create their own works of art in classes led by Hartford Art School students and faculty.

There will also be a reception from 1 to 3 p.m. for attendees to meet and talk with new Hartford Art School Dean Nancy Stuart. This event is free and open to the public.

Artwork by faculty and students of the Hartford Art School will also be for sale during the Open Studio time.

The Hartford Art School is one of the seven colleges at the University of Hartford. The Hartford Art School has programs that specialize in a wide variety of art including: ceramics, printmaking, painting, drawing, photography, illustration, media arts and more. Students and professors will be on hand during the open studio to share their skills with local community members who want to explore and create different forms of art.
