Studio 84 will provide fully accessible opportunities in the arts
to enrich peoples lives
by focusing on the strengths and abilities of the individual,

thus, inspiring self-worth, pride, confidence and acceptance.
Philosophy and Approach
Our philosophy is to provide open exploration of
any medium chosen
by the student with individualized guidance.
By looking closely at each student's abilities and skill level,
instruction is provided.
Whatever challenges they may bring with them

and provide every opportunity for success. Students are challenged and
encouraged to grow at their own pace.
