Studios Spring 2013

  • Venture to San Miguel de Allende, Mexico, to meet three artists who are part of a vibrant art district. Discover why this colorful colonial city attracts artists from all over the world.
  • Marvel at studios whose influences take root in English libraries, ancient castles, and whimsical freestanding studios from history.
  • Find inspiration from artists who carve out studio space in both the expected and unexpected, including attics, nooks, lofts, and barns.
  • Cave in to your IKEA and flea market weaknesses with inventive ideas on how to furnish a studio using only your thriftiest finds from each. 

Melt wax for encaustic techniques, sew quilts in every style imaginable, put more "mix" in your mixed media, and paint your studio walls as well as your canvases. You will even learn how to make a window valance out of tongue depressors. 

Let your whimsy, and your studio, get a breath of fresh air with the newest edition of Studios! Order your copy of this must-have issue today!
