The Studio introduces new focus for artists

Explore new experiences, resources at open house at Anythink Wright Farms

Posted

The Studio at Anythink’s recently transformed space now supports a variety of artistic activities, including traditional arts such as painting and sculpting, and more modern processes such as laser cutting and engraving.

Patrons can learn more about the new resources available at an open house Aug. 17 at Anythink Wright Farms. Visitors can test out new equipment, attend workshops, talk to staff members and artists in residence during the event, which lasts from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The studio also will focus on programming and drop-in space to support artists of all skill levels and backgrounds, whether they are exploring a new hobby or professionals looking to advance their creative careers.

“The Studio provides opportunities for people to learn through creation,” Anythink Studio coordinator Mo Yang said in a news release. “Through these experiences, community members can explore their passions while also benefitting from the guidance of professional artists in residence. These collaborative community connections not only help people learn, but they provide vital support to those looking to take their creative skills into the workforce. The open house will provide a great sampling of upcoming programs, tools and experiences available to the public.”

Despite this new transition in focus, the staff at The Studio will continue to provide hands-on support for past experiences and equipment, including digital design, videography, sound production and 3D printing. Additionally, Anythink customers can continue to check out equipment for home use, including Wacom drawing tablets, lighting kits, tripods, MIDI keyboards and more.

The Studio at Anythink is guided by the philosophy that customers of all ages thrive when they discover and follow their passions, collaborate with others, and become creators, according to the release. Studio experiences are centered around production and put interest-driven, informal learning into action. While The Studio has two dedicated physical spaces at Anythink Wright Farms and Anythink Brighton, Anythink also creates the environment for experiences to be hosted at all seven of its locations with traveling equipment and programming.
