History

The Studio School has brought quality art education to the Roanoke Valley since 1990.

Adult classes continue to maintain a high quality of education, and the beginning student finds as much support and encouragement as does the professional artist attending for a “recharge” of inspiration or a new challenge. Group trips are organized to travel to painting locations, galleries and museums in Roanoke and other cities. The schedule now Includes a busy Children’s Program held after school and on Saturday.

The Studio School was located for many years above Mish-Mish, an art supply store on Campbell Avenue near the Historic Farmers’ Market in Roanoke, Virginia. In 2001 the Studio School moved to a spacious suite of two classrooms on the first floor of Roanoke’s Jefferson Center, and then to 505a South Jefferson Street in December, 2006; We moved to 1104B Brandon Avenue, Roanoke, Virginia in 2010. As of April 2018, we will hold classes in the upper level of Towers Mall!
