You will have a voice in the operation and vision of the studio, and your ideas and gifts will have a place to manifest and bloom.

As a member of the Art & Soul Co-op, I have the key to a magical gate that leads into a garden where my artist self is nourished, warmed, blooming and alive. My fellow artists, and the wide open studio space, provide me safety and encouragement to wander, wonder and grow. –Kelly Falzone, Art & Soul student
