Into the studio

Articipate is a storefront art studio in downtown Berkley.  We promote art and support artists, especially would-be artists. Here, you can drop in and  immerse yourself in an exploration of art materials and imagination. Or, check the calendar for our upcoming events and classes. We like to experiment and keep things fresh…if you have a workshop you want to teach, call us! An idea for an art show?  Yes!in-out2


Art and YOUR Book Club

Bring your book group into the studio for a special meeting!  What to expect:

You’ll have time to socialize and share refreshments. On display, will be a sample of the craft you will make, as well as the materials used in the project–just to get your creativity flowing.  Before the discussion of the book begins, Ester Mauricio will give guidance on the project. Then, you’ll make your art project at your seat while you discuss the book.  The price will be $10 per person.
