Hello fellow creatives!

We are Shawn Sargent (local artist/store owner - Shawn Sargent Designs) and Dave Penna (local artist/painter), and we have an opportunity to provide working artist studios and creative workspaces in downtown Glen Ellyn starting this summer, 2018. 

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 so we get a better sense of size & type of space you'd like. We will contact you shortly!  **See specific studio space details below survey. 

We are currently in the process of planning and buildout & anticipate starting rentals as early as July/August, with leasing beginning in June.

Thanks! We're excited to collaborate with you.
