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. 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
