Hello fellow creatives!
We are Shawn Sargent (local artist/store owner - Shawn Sargent Designs) and Dave Penna (local artist/painter), and we are excited to offer working artist studios and creative workspaces in downtown Glen Ellyn.
If you've been wanting a space to work and create outside of your home, this is for you!
Studios/workspaces will be limited and offered in order of application. Please submit this brief survey form and we will contact you!
>> See details and studio space details below survey.
We are currently showing spaces, with leasing beginning in September.
Thanks! We're excited to collaborate with you.
