Family Open Studios are free art-making workshops designed for the whole family’s participation. They are presented in conjunction with exhibitions at the William D. Cannon Art Gallery and allow visitors to:
- View the current exhibition in the gallery
- Create works of art in the courtyard (suited for all age levels)
- Benefit from professional artists/instructor assistance
- Take the finished project home
Family Open Studios are presented by the City of Carlsbad’s Cultural Arts Office and are generously funded by the Carlsbad Friends of the Arts. The “Plus” programs are made possible by the Carlsbad Library and Arts Foundation’s Robert H. Gartner Cultural Endowment Fund. “Plus” performing arts programs take place in the Schulman Auditorium at 11:45 a.m. and again at 1:15 p.m.
