How to Set Up an Artist Studio
On behalf of TVLesson.com, my name is Jacklyn Laflamme and I'm a professional artist. To have a studio or not have a studio that is the question. Of course, as an artist we would all dream of having these elaborate, beautiful, bright studios with lots of natural light flowing in and great space to work and a place to make a big math. But we can't limit ourselves to not working if we don’t all have those spaces. So there are many different types of studios that you can have. You can have a little home studio where you create a little corner in your house to paint and to work and you set up all your supplies and have them all there ready to go. Or of course, you can have the fancy, elaborate studio.
But don’t be limited if you don’t have the space to work. A lot of artists will use that as an excuse not to work. And really it shouldn’t matter what your space is. If you're a true artist, you will find the passion and you will find the space to work. So if you're working in your home studio, it’s good to have a little corner where you can leave everything out in the open because if you have to take everything out and put them away then it might be a little harder to get motivated, to get some work done. You might be a little bit more motivated to work just a half an hour here or an hour there on a painting.
And something else to remember, a lot of people are like well I can't get any work done because I really don’t have the time. But if you think about half an hour every single day and you add that up over a week’s time, you actually can get a lot of artwork done especially if you don’t always have to pack up everything and put it away.
Now of course, the other alternative is to rent a fancy studio space and have everything just that your fingertips and the perfect right space to work in. But not everybody has that. However, if you would like to have studio spaces, there are usually are warehouse districts in most cities or spots where artists are welcome. And another alternative as well is to maybe team up with a couple of other artists and share some space. So there are a lot of ways that you can have the space to do the work that you need to do.
