Shoestring Studio is a membership based work space serving painters, draftsmen, illustrators, and other artists in need of work space, community, and shared resources. The Studio’s primary mission is to provide affordable, accessible work space for artists in Crown Heights and the greater Brooklyn area and to create a diverse and accessible program of classes and workshops. Shoestring Studio is a sister space of Shoestring Press, a membership based artist cooperative printmaking press and event space at 663 Classon Avenue.
Member artists have open access to Shoestring Studio Wednesday through Sunday, noon to 10PM. We stock mediums, solvents, and drawing supplies for common use, and provide both locker and flat storage for all members as well as rack storage for drying paintings, encaustic equipment, and easels. The Shoestring Studio community includes technical consultations, monthly critique groups, discounts on our two weekly model sessions, and printmaking access to Shoestring Press across the street.
