THE STUDIO

Creative Exploration and Discovery

THE STUDIO is a space that invites ahha visitors to think like artists through open-
ended creative exploration and discovery. In THE STUDIO, visitors select their own
materials from a wide array of possibilities, generate their own ideas and execute
their own unique creative products. STUDIO Ambassadors act as guides for
technical support and Creative Challenges are available for visitors who need help
getting started.

The STUDIO is open during public hours and included with admission (member
admission is always free!). Children under 13 must be accompanied by an adult.
Surrounding THE STUDIO are the Creative Labs, where visitors can further their
creative exploration through classes and workshops with a focus on fiber arts,
printmaking, traditional and digital photography, media arts, jewelry making, and
sculpture.
