Studio Two Three Opportunities!

Published on December 16, 2015

VCUarts is proud to say that Ashley Hawkins, Director of Studio Two Three is an alumna of VCUarts.  She clearly calls Richmond home and her work through this nonprofit is making a mark on the rough and tumble arts community.  I’m excited to be partnering with her on some upcoming projects, but for now I’m happy to share this below.

VCUarts and Studio Two Three join forces! As Richmond’s only community print shop, we aim to keep our creative community robust and evolving for the current generation and the next. As VCUarts students, you play an essential role in helping us pursue our goal! We are so excited about the resources and community we have to offer. Stop by for a visit over winter break or get involved as a teacher, student, volunteer, or resident!
