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!


Social-Media Activities

Social Studio Online Sketch


Practice. Practice. Practice! Social Studio Sketch is a daily practice of responding to an open-ended prompt with a sketch challenge as a way to explore and express our perspectives. Sharing our work teaches us to see and respect the way others see too.

Social Studio Online Sundays


An informal introduction of an art or craft to a virtual community on Instagram Live. Social Studio Sundays presents projects you can do together as a family, at home with easy to find materials.

Social Studio Online Sessions


Just because we’re not together doesn’t mean we can’t make art together. These group classes are designed to develop art-making and creative thinking skills on various topics.

Social Studio Online Stories


Let’s read and get inspired to make art. Social Studio Stories creates opportunities to read and relate to stories from the children’s book collection at Social Studio. The story is followed by related art activities.


Find new perspectives and sharpen your skills through our daily sketch challenge. Share your creation and tag @socialstudiobaltimore with hashtag #socialstudiosketch


(this is my #socIalstudiosketch assignment from socialstudiobaltimore)

Day 39/47

if there was a tug of war
between night and day
night has won
lasting 16 hours or so of the 24

for company In the endless wee hours
i depend heavily on Bette and Barbara and Joan
in their shirtwaist dresses, fur stoles, and tidy gloves
every hair in place as they architect their way through tough situations

as all women must do

here’s hoping lessons learned from their nighttime exploits
fortify me for the days ahead

(Today’s poem is in response to a wanpoetry prompt to write a poem about your name and the drawings are my #socialstudiosketch assignment from socialstudiobaltimore. The drawing assignment is to create a pop art version of a word to announce your re-entry into the world IRL)

Day 19/37

rushing through the moonlit woods
a glittering tiara slips off her head
as the paparazzi close in
she darts from side to side avoiding landmines
accompanied by the small animals she protects

also always with her, her metal cuffs and her lasso of truth
she uses them to unlock the wonders of the world
and then shares her findings by making marks on paper
creating a beacon, a glowing light in the dark sky

the life of a middle-aged goddess in baltimore
who always knew she was destined to be a princess
and that creating was her superpower

Today’s words and today’s #socialstudiosketch assignment from socialstudiobaltimore
Day 13/31
one tear becomes forty
as the skies open
to rain down grief
in biblical proportions

the torrent pelts us
coming at us sideways
inescapeable dodgeballs
soaking us to our core

while the orange man in the white house
worries only about his own umbrella

At POWER HOUR the kids shared how they would help others when they thought they needed courage. Here are some of their answers: ELSIE - I will make sure that people who need courage will have an animal they really like near them to help them move through the dark mountains. OLIVIA - I will believe in whoever needs courage so that they can do it. They can always try again if they can’t do it. I will be so happy that I help a lot of people. LAURENCE -  I will help them to get through the hard parts by giving them the tools they need to get through (like a boat and hiking sticks and masks). When you help others get through their fears you get more courage and friends. #socialstudiostories ...

Power Hour: A small group of kids logged on from 4-5pm for a read aloud, writing prompt, drawing prompt, and share and it was interactive and inventive! Dr. Seuss did not always get it right.

Connect to art through a supportive community. These group classes develop art-making and thinking skills on various topics.

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 💚

The shoe drawings in the adult drawing class: VALUE - Black & White show use of value to show form and markmaking to show expression. We contemplated the question: How do artists use value (lights & darks) to show what they value (care about)? We looked at some shoe art by Van Gogh, @cj_hendry @sarahbeetson and Andy Warhol. #socialstudiosessions #onlineartclass ...

What our students (and parents) have to say

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
