Over the last year we've been dreaming up how to optimally bring our passion for art, travel, education, and community into action, and in turn created Studio Everywhere to represent our family’s ambition to experience and learn more about how ART empowers, connects, and inspires across geographic and socio-economic boundaries.
We are thrilled to announce that Studio Everywhere will launch in August 2015, with a 10-month journey. We will travel across the Americas, Asia, and Europe, and invite children to paint and draw self-portraits expressing “how they see themselves in the world.”
As we facilitate Studio Everywhere art workshops internationally – including art lessons by professional artists Michael Orwick and 10-year-old Elena Grace Orwick – we aim to capture and share a compelling story of how art transcends language, builds trust for a stronger global community, and reflects a deep cultural insight.
