Kent Bellows Studio:
At the Kent Bellows Studio & Center for Visual Arts, students take classroom techniques to the next level. They develop their own intensive course of study, setting personal goals and overcoming creative obstacles. While working hands-on up to 20 hours a month with the finest professional artists in the metro, students build critical thinking skills, tenacity, and a lifelong drive for innovation.

The exhibit is funded in part by the generous support of the Richard and Mary McCormick Endowment for the Fine and Performing Arts, the Grace Keenan Fund and an anonymous source.
