Welcome Artists, to a studio for drawing and painting. Each Artist becomes a collector in his or her own way - because each captures on a canvas, and suspends in time and space, a frozen moment of paint, pigment, light and shadow. This is The Night Gallery.

Materials and Studio Maintenance Fee*

After registration we collect a periodic Materials and Studio Maintenance Fee of $48 which is collected again in two months. Full time students may pay the same amount monthly. This Materials and Studio Maintenance Fee provides the student body with general materials we all share and keeps the studio functional for everyone's benefit. It supplies nearly all drawing materials. Students will still need personal items such as brushes and painting surfaces befitting a well trained and prepared Artist. Thank you for supporting the studio.
