What's New at STEAMboat Studio?


We are THRILLED to let you know of some of the exciting happenings at STEAMboat Studio! As you may have noticed, we have added a few new faces in the Studio, which means a new influx of ideas and creative energy -- and a growing list of programs! We've added new classes for teens and adults, too, so there's something for everyone! We're also making it easier for busy families with some new single-visit options, a new two-week family art class, and our new drop-in Open Studio program. We're even upgrading our registration system for a more user-friendly experience, and some convenient features like electronic punchcards! 

We're taking a break from our regular class schedule until the New Year, but you're welcome to stop by during Open Studio hours Monday, Wednesday, and Friday from 1-5 to ask questions, purchase punchcards or gift certificates, or just check out the Studio! Our special Holiday pricing for Open Studio punchcards is available through STEAMboat Studio’s website STORE or in person through December 22nd.

We at STEAMboat Studio are grateful for your support this past year, and we're looking forward to offering even more opportunities for hands-on learning and creative exploration for all ages in the coming year!

We've added 3 fabulous new instructors to the STEAMboat Studio crew!

Jennifer Hatters, STEAMboat studio Artist/Instructor offered assemblage and book art classes in the Studio earlier this year. She has joined the STEAMboat Studio staff as a regular instructor, and is introducing “Make Art With Me,” a parent/child collaboration with each 2-week session exploring a different artist and techniques. January’s artists are Louise Nevelson and Jackson Pollock.

That was Tiffany! Tiffany brings her experience as a classroom art docent to STEAMboat Studio, and you might also see her name on a future article or blog post! 



Artist/Instructor Brenda Chrystie is STEAMboat Studio’s new Business Manager! Brenda, one of our resident artists, will still be instructing Art Explorers. However, her new duties include STEAMboat Studio’s new adult programs and coordinating STEAMboat Studio Birthday Parties, and just keeping the behind-the-scense running smoothly. Speaking of birthday parties, our January 2018 calendar is filling up fast! If you have a birthday party coming, she suggests you submit a request form at least a month and a half in advance.

Jennifer, Tiffany and Brenda will each be in the Studio for our NEW Open Studio sessions from 1:00 to 5:00 pm on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays. I encourage you to stop by for an Open Studio creativity session and get to know them. Each brings a different set of skills, ideas and teaching style, but they are all very creative individuals.
