I don’t have a traditional studio space. Should I still register?

    • Yes! Even though ’studio’ is in the name, Open Studio Tours isn’t just about traditional studio spaces. It is all about showing people how and where you create art. A ’studio’ can be your living room, a friend’s house, your backyard or even public streets. How do you create? Why do you create? How can the community support you? When you register, OST will market you and your art… completely free.
