Whether you’re new to painting or an experienced artist, Gudrun Studio is opening space for artists to set up an easel and paint! Enjoy the 'Beauty of Art' in this inspiring studio space housed in a building with seven other working studios and practicing artists. Meet other like-minded artists and creative people to motivate and inspire you. Working alongside others naturally moves you to a higher level with your art, helping you to learn, grow and create.
