Open Studio Portrait is offered on the 4th Thursday of each month. The 4th Thursday in November is Thanksgiving, so the open studio portrait day will be the Thursday prior, the 16th. Also, they are canceling December’s Open Studio Portraits and will resume in January on 1/25.
You will need a MOcode, so please contact Shannon Cary at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested in this service.
We have a small gift for all graduating student workers, and we will acknowledge them on social media (with their permission). So please send the names of these students to Jacqueline and Shannon at email@example.com and firstname.lastname@example.org by December 1. Thanks!
