Open Art Studio Membership

| /

This membership is for full access to our public art studio located at 1400 Ribaut Rd in Port Royal, SC.

The studio will be open to members anytime during our retail shop hours, and when a class isn't scheduled. (We currently hold 2-3 classes a week but are cutting back to 4-5 classes a month.)

Our hours beginning in March are:

Tuesday-Friday 11am-6pm

Saturday 10am-6pm

Sunday 12pm-5pm


Amidst the Alders provides all necessary supplies (except canvases):
drying racks, towels, Gamsol, brushes, paints, rulers, gloves, aprons, easels, etc. Canvases will be available for purchase in store, or you can bring your own.

Who It's For:

This option is great for those who don’t want to keep oil paints in their home whether for safety, cleanliness, space and/or the smell. It’s also excellent for anyone who doesn’t want to immediately invest the $$$ in oil painting supplies to get started, or an artist who wants to paint in a positive, uplifting, light-filled atmosphere with other like-minded individuals.
The membership is for all levels of experience (as long as you have actual experience in oil painting) and does not include any instruction/tutorials from Kayla or Matt. It is simply a beautiful studio space to create in.
If you're an experienced artist, you are more than welcome to join the membership and bring your own supplies, however, to keep things simple on our end, the monthly fee will not change. To preserve space, we do not allow you to bring your own easel unless it is a plein air setup that you will take with you each time you leave, or fold away and store in our back room with your name on it.


The cost is $150/per person a month, cancellable at any time.


Access to several standing easels, as well as many tabletop easels, chairs, all supplies (paints, solvents, mediums, shop towels, brushes, aprons, gloves, etc.), restroom, drying racks, our printer (for reference images.)
The studio will be open any time the retail shop is open, except on class days. (Members will receive access to a shared schedule that will contain all class dates.) Notices on proper chemical disposal, brush cleaning, varnishing and more will be posted at all times in the studio.


This is limited to only 10 people at a time. Membership and access to the studio begins March 1st, 2024. Once filled with members, we'll post on our social media if/when a space becomes available.

Does NOT Include:

You will have access to Kayla for simple questions when she is in the shop, but this membership does not include lessons or tutorials. Due to time constraints, workload, classes and her own artwork, unfortunately we must be fairly strict on this.

Payment & Renewal:

While the subscription is auto-renewed, there is no contract or fee for cancelling, and you are free to do so at any time. Memberships will be renewed on the 27th of every month for the next month. To keep it easy on us, we do not allow pro-rating. We also cannot process refunds once a payment has gone through.

For example:

•If you purchase a membership on April 18th, your membership will begin on May 1st. •If you cancel on June 4th, your membership will remain valid until June 30th. •If you'd like to begin using the studio space immediately upon purchase, you will need to pay the $150 fee for that month, no matter what day it is.
