Studio Two Three’s Rockstar Series brings artists to the studio to share their art-making skills while they get a taste of our wonderful city. Rockstars share their awesomeness with workshop at Studio Two Three highlighting their rockin’ technique, process and concept. During their time in Richmond, out-of-town Rockstars will stay in a local haunt and get the lay of the land from Richmonders - they might just fall in love and never leave.
