ELAINE SILBERMAN ART STUDIO
After 28 years of service, the treehouse space has undergone a much-needed facelift to become the Elaine Silberman Art Studio. The amount of natural light makes this a prime location for painting and drawing as well as Ceramics and this updated indoor art studio will house early childhood art and ceramics during the day, youth art and ceramics after school, and adult art and ceramics in the evening. Art parties, ceramic parties, and many youth and adult workshops will make use of the space over the weekends.
