Social Media Art
with Social Studio 

Let’s make art together … wherever you are.

Why? Because learning and growing is a social activity.

Artists of all backgrounds and skills deserve a community built on inspiration, support, feedback, and empathy.

Though Social Studio’s social-media-based art activities you’ll:

  • Build confidence
  • Find greater self-awareness
  • Increase your range of ideas and possible outcomes
  • Find that the creativity and perspective skills you develop in art can be used in all areas of life.
  • See yourself and others through art and together discover how to be ourselves.

Get started by following us on social (Instagram, Facebook, YouTube) and join the daily fun!

My #socialstudiosketch assignment for today (from socialstudiobaltimore), was to create a seed package for what I want to grow in the world. Please excuse my terrible handwriting. The directions on the package are:

Plant in sun or shade, in any season. Plant in soil mix of respect and wonder. Water liberally with hugs, laughter, and empathy.
Also put on the package one of my 100 day poems from a few years ago:

Breathe in my love
Feel it enter and move through you
Sinking deep into your lungs
And then, just as effortlessly,
Breathe it out

Love, like air,
Must be released

Yep. I did it! I called it Social (Distance) Studio! A bit over 6 months ago, I started Social Studio - a local art studio in Roland Park. An amazing neighborhood of people who love the arts and community building. And, a neighborhood full of children!!! There are 7 schools in walking distance. The studio, albeit small, is packed with visual inspiration, good energy, lots of books, and almost every art supply available. Now, because of the current coronavirus pandemic, I’m expanding the studio to reach people in their homes, wherever they may be. It is my goal to bring you the creativity and connection cultivated in the actual studio through my “Studio (Distance) Studio” programs. Here they are: #socialstudiosundays #socislstudiosketch #socialstudiosessions #socialstudiostories #socialstudiosayings - You can get more information on the website: socialstudioart.com and in IG highlights on @socialstudiobaltimore profile page. Be well & be creative! ❤️ ...

What our students (and parents) have to say

This is my favorite two hours of the week! Genie opens the session with a group warm-up that is both fun and instructional. Then, the participants can work on projects of their choice. If you're not sure what you want to do, or how to do it, Genie guides you. As you work, you feel supported and by your fellow artists. The sense of community is second only to the spirit of creativity at Social Studio.

Elated Adult Student

It’s so much more than an art class. She had them engaging with science, nature and geography. They were singing songs. My daughter was bubbling over with pride after class. When she draws with us she is easily discouraged that she can’t draw like an adult. With social studio the projects are age appropriate and she is able to engage with peers. As a fellow arts educator I’m super impressed.

Happy Parent

Love that it was interactive. I wasn't sure if my daughter would be allowed to talk during the class because of the size but, she was able to talk and show her art work. I was very impressed. The teacher is very enthusiastic and you can tell she genuinely loves her job.

Diana B.

Lila has absolutely loved this class! Being exposed to different types of media and techniques while getting to explore an inspiring artist has been a wonderful experience for her. Genie is awesome and — even at a (Social) distance — has built a relationship with all of the students and a sense of camaraderie. What a fabulous experience!

Happy Parent

Go to Social Studio Baltimore for all your kid and adult art making needs! R made this treehouse playground in a mere two hours this morning. Genie Arnot is such an amazing teacher and she has put together a beautiful studio that makes art accessible to everyone.

Happy Parent

Genie, congrats on accomplishing a such meaningful feat. With art, we can feel the ground move beneath our feet and the air more oxygenated. You’ve given the community a dedicated place to grow and daydream. You’re amazing!! Go on!

Social Studio Enthusiast 

You taught me negative space, how to draw faces and many more really cool things! Most of all you showed me how to connect to other people and things and that is really powerful.

Art Student

Being a student in your class is a gift that we are so thankful for.

Grateful Parent 

I could not let this year end without telling you how grateful I am that you were Avelynn's art teacher for four years. She sees herself as an artist and a problem solver because you expect them all to be.

Proud Parent

Thank you for being a wonderful art teacher! I loved art classes with you!

Happy Student
