Art requires space. For some artists that means a corner of the kitchen table or a portable easel. For others a video camera, microphone, and a computer with editing software. The lucky ones have their own dedicated studio space.
As we plan our nomadic life we know we will need to create a space to create. Our current dream is to convert a trailer that will be hitched to our RV. It will be specially fitted to carry our car on the road, then when we stop and park, the car comes out and worktables and stands pull down so we can make art. We’ll share blog posts, photos, and maybe even video of our progress when the time comes.
For now, we’ll share our lessons learned from our past — and present — studio spaces. We’ve set up worktables in a corner of a large room, converted spare bedrooms into work space, and even turned an old garage/workshop into a backyard studio. And when we travel, even locally, we have our “portable art kit” so that we can keep creating.
Photos of past studio spaces
When we moved into a house in Phoenix, one of the bonuses was a detached garage that could be turned into a studio. Which we did.
Check out the photos that showed the progression from storage space to working art studio.
You can also watch this video. It’s a walk-through of the early stages of the conversion process.
