drawing out the artist in everyone

For thirty five years, WSS has been teaching artists of all skill levels how to see and create through drawing, painting and sculpture. We offer classes, workshops, exhibitions and programs to engage, connect and bring people together through a fresh approach to traditional studio art. We encourage artists to grow, explore, learn together and create art that is personal and relevant. 

 Develop strong skills.        

 Learn to see in new ways.       

 Discover your voice.
