Workshops and Open Studios for Adults

Find more workshops for adults in the Special Workshops section.


Affordable, specialized workshops offer adult students a chance for exploration, skill building, and mastery of artistic techniques. These workshops complement and enrich the basic foundation provided by tuition-free classes by offering increased studio time, smaller class size, and in-depth study with Fleisher’s esteemed faculty.

Workshops are offered for year round with both day and evening times. The fall, winter and spring sessions are ten weeks; our shorter summer session is six weeks, but this includes several weeklong intensive workshops if you would like to immerse yourself in a medium.
Fleisher workshops fill quickly, so early registration is encouraged. Fleisher members receive discounts on workshop tuition, and make you eligible to participate in the annual student exhibition.

Tuition assistance is available for Fleisher’s adult workshops, if financial help is necessary to enroll. Read more about tuition assistance. For inquiries about tuition assistance, contact Julia Federico at 215-922-3456 ext. 327 or

Open Studios

Open studio time at Fleisher is available for intermediate or advanced students who wish to work independently in a shared studio space. This is a wonderful opportunity to use the Fleisher facilities to help expand your body of artwork, without the costs of renting your own studio. Open studios are offered in Ceramics, Printmaking, Painting, Drawing, and Darkroom Photography.

Studio availability, costs and lab fees vary.
For new open studio students, an orientation session is required; some additional fees may apply for orientation. Current Fleisher students, knowledgeable of studio practice and Fleisher studio use policies, may request permission from Fleisher faculty to bypass orientation.

To inquire about open studio time, contact Caitlin Perkins at 215-922-3456 ext. 312 or
