Railyard Arts: Our Story
We at Railyard Arts Studio are local artists who wanted to create a studio where we would love to work–a place where we felt comfortable, inspired and relaxed. A place to create with others who are looking to express their creativity through all types of artwork and enjoy a collaborative and supportive atmosphere.
When we thought about building Railyard Arts Studio we spoke to artists of all types and skill levels and asked them what they would want in an art studio. What sort of environment would inspire them? And what capabilities should the studio have?
After brainstorming with local artists, we believe we have created a studio that fits just what was asked for:
Studios for creating different types of art in an open, casual and newly constructed sunlit setting.
All the equipment and tools necessary to create the work they desire and to learn new skills and techniques.
A place for artists to relax, talk, share ideas and inspire each other in a casual lounge space designed to create collaboration.
A chance for artists of all skill levels to show off their work, both in person at gallery shows and on a digital platform. Both options to be available whether they wish to sell their art or just allow friends and family to see what they have created.
Classes and workshops in ceramics, painting and various other disciplines to allow everyone to grow as artists.
An art education program that exposes children, teens and adults to various materials and mediums to introduce them to a vast array of ways to express their artistic talents.
24 hour access to studios to ensure artists can create as they wish while accommodating the never ending hectic schedules we all have.
Social events like “Mud and Merlot”, “Art and Meditation”, “Paint and Sip” and a host of others designed to bring friends, both old and new, together and just have fun.
And of course, a bottomless cup of coffee or tea from our in- house coffee bar for all to enjoy!
There is always something to learn, something to try, something to share.
