The Studio @ Gallery North
Gallery North also offers significant, educational programming for children and adults.

The Studio features classes and workshops in a variety of mediums, including watercolor, life drawing, encaustic, papermaking, as well as silkscreen and other printmaking processes, done in house on our printing press.
