Open Studio DC is temporarily closed. As of September 2018, we lost our lease and are looking for a new location, most likely in Baltimore.

Open Studio DC was founded by Carolyn Hartmann in 2010 and relocated to Ivy City DC in 2014. As an Adjunct Professor in the printing department of the Corcoran College of Art and Design, Hartmann recognized that there were few studios in DC open to screenprinting artists who were not students. To fill this void, Hartmann started Open Studio DC, a studio that is open to any and all artists in DC.
