Studio Two Three: Find that Thing You Love and Make It!
Find that thing you love and make it. That's what artists, makers, dreamers and doers come here every day to do. That's why we are here.
We provide artists with studio space, young people with the opportunity to imagine a world beyond our own, and our community the tools to amplify their voices. But we need your help to do it.
Please make more of the things we all love possible by donating today.
JACKIE'S THING: TELLING HER STORY
“As a full-time mother, writer and illustrator, when I sold my first book I had no idea when and where I would find the physical and mental space to get the manuscript done.
Studio Two Three changed my life by providing an affordable 24-hour-access studio space where I could leave the rest of my life behind and get to work.
Being surrounded by a community of like-minded artists sustained me through many sleepless nights; I’m privileged to be a part of this diverse creative community.”
- Jackie Ann Ruiz, artist
MARK'S THING: EMPOWERING YOUTH TO REFORM THE JUVENILE JUSTICE SYSTEM
"During our Performing Statistics workshops with incarcerated youth, we had the honor of working with Studio Two Three to print t-shirts and posters to give out at our annual Justice Parade.
So much of art is imagining a world beyond our own. A world beyond the limitations, and in the teen's case, the very real walls and barriers, that separate people from potential futures, jobs, communities and resources.
Working with Studio Two Three not only allowed the teens to discover new ways of sharing their stories, but opened up entrepreneurial possibilities that were culturally relevant and exciting for the teens."
- Mark Strandquist, artist, activist, Performing Statistics Creative Director
Performing Statistics is a project of Art 180
These are just a few of the stories of Studio Two Three.
