In Search of Artist Educators

The Westmoreland is in search of artists and makers to host Pop-Up Studios. Pop-Up Studios are geared towards adults (ages 18 and above) and take place once a month on a Wednesday evening, 6-8pm, in the Museum studio. These classes give adult attendees the opportunity to discover different techniques, work with various types of media and explore their creative side in a relaxing environment with snacks, drinks and expert instruction. Interested in hosting a Pop-Up Studio or have some questions? Please contact Studio Programs Coordinator Michael Carsone at 724.837.1500 x 146 or mcarsone@thewestmoreland.org.
