Need to carve out some time to ignite your creativity?  


WADA announces "Ignite - Open Studio"

  • Sunday and Tuesday evenings 6-9pm and currently offering the opportunity to join on a monthly or quarterly basis. 
  • The painting sessions will be held in the large open space upstairs allowing up to 14 people to safely social distance in their own 6 foot area. 
  • The sessions will be overseen by resident artist, Nancie Norman who will provide easels, tables and chairs, inspiration and guidance.  

If you are interested in learning more, please follow this link to schedule a call with Nancie to discuss your project.  If you are ready to subscribe: Purchase Subscription    Prior painting experience is not necessary.  If you are a beginner, there will be a suggested art supply list.  The sessions are designed to carve out time for you to express yourselves creatively and take timeout from the day to day.  You may have painted in a prior life or always wanted to try your hand at abstract painting to fill an empty wall in your house.  All art materials should be non-toxic so no oil painting or aerosols.  Everyone will be responsible for cleaning their personal work area after each session.  

During your call with Nancie, you will be discussing what you would like to accomplish during your studio time and put together a plan for executing as soon as you arrive onsite.  

You are not required to be a member of WADA, however if you sign-up for Open Studio time, you will be offered the artist discounted WADA membership rate of just $55/year.
