Connecting the arts and our community is done through various educational opportunities involving all ages. Join a class, learn a new technique or join in our open studio session.
Open studio offers a welcoming opportunity for artists to collaborate with one another by sharing a work space in an open area during a 2-hour session. The artists bring their supplies, project, drop cloth and a donation of $5 for facility use. Techniques, tips and expertise are freely exchanged in this friendly noncompetitive and engaging atmosphere. Open Studio is held every 3rd Tuesday of the month from 10 a.m. to noon at the Mosaic Community Center on 1201 West Court Street, Seguin, Texas.
