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!

Todays’s #sketchbookchallenge is a classic! 1. Trace something (it does not have to be your hand!) lightly on the paper. Throughout this exercise, resist the temptation to trace this outline with marker!!! The optical illusion works best with the change in line, not outlines! 2. Using a marker or pen make a horizontal straight line up to the pencil outline. Then curve the line as it goes across the surface of the object you chose. Then, straighten the line to go across the rest of the page. 3. Make many, many parallel lines in this fashion, curving them to match the object form. 4. Add lines between the lines changing color or thickness. 5. “Pic and post” using #socialstudiosketch 👏🤚👋 ...

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! ❤️ ...

Louise Bourgeois is our artist for our first #mastermonday - Louise Bourgeois was a famous artist who was best known for her sculptures and installation art although she was also a painter and a printmaker. Social Studio is offering a class called “Spiders and Stitches” where you can make art inspired by her.

I try to use the summer months to gain new inspiration & rethink what I do and how I do things, so thought it would be a good time to help others doing the same: I'm hosting my next Social Media Strategy Workshop on July 28 💭
It will help you rethink/think about the way you can use your channels, set goals for your online activities and give you new ideas 💡
Space is limited, to keep it cosy & interactive! More info and sign up via the link in my bio. Would love to see some of you there 💚

What our students (and parents) have to say

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
