Work on your creative projects (draw, paint, sculpt, write, knit, collage, doodle, and so on) in a quiet environment with other people who are doing the same. Creative work is an essential part of life, and having a set place and time to engage in these activities in the company of like-minded people can foster accountability in developing consistent creative practices. The studio staffer will keep some basic tools and materials on hand for shared use. Use of tools and materials is free, but we do recommend a $1-$5 per hour donation for use of the space, to help cover rent and keep SubRosa open in the long term. No one turned away for lack of funds. Space also open for other uses as well, but Studio Hours are prioritized.

Some of the most vibrant sessions occur when there are a wide range of body types to draw. We've done everything from fully nude to fully clothed, depending on what everyone feels comfortable with. The front gate will be unlocked: just push it open, close it behind you, and join us inside!
