Closing Announcement

OFFICIAL ANNOUNCEMENT

From Yellow Door Art Studios

It is with a heavy heart and great expectations for the future that we announce the closing of Yellow Door Art Studios on March 31, 2018.

Note: All of Yellow Door's currently scheduled classes will continue until March 31.


Our Move

Carrie Patterson will move her personal studio and her drawing and painting classes to:

CARRIE PATTERSON, drawing and painting studio
22719 Washington Street (above SPICE Studio)
Phone: 301-904-5704
Web: www.carriepatterson.com

In the new location, Carrie will continue her current painting practice, teach small classes, conduct private drawing and painting lessons, and work one-on-one with students in painting and drawing. Carrie has built a wealth of knowledge about art through the innovative lesson plans she developed at Yellow Door, and is ready to share her curriculum with a broader audience. Carrie is preparing to launch a new series of online arts curriculum for all age groups, and is developing the course How to See with The Great Courses.

 

Our History

Since 2009, Yellow Door Art Studios has offered high quality art experiences for kids of all ages in Leonardtown. Over the course of nine years we have watched our students win awards, earn scholarships, and clapped as our teachers, over twenty-six St. Mary’s College of Maryland undergraduate students, have gone on to pursue careers in community art, art education, and graduate school. We have had the pleasure of working with our founding student artists and inner core supporting families since 2009 (you know who you are). We offered free or reduced cost art events for First Fridays, annual town events, and brought in visiting artists and their work to contribute to the arts and entertainment district. We loved sharing the amazing talent of all of our teachers and supporters with this community and we're so excited to continue to do so in the future through more in-depth lessons and workshops at Carrie's new studio and through her online programs.
