I created Open Window Studio in 2003 with the intention of teaching a few art classes out of my painting studio. At the time I had no idea it would grow into a passion for me that is as strong as my passion to create my own art. The two are now inextricably linked. I love helping people of all ages find their creative voices and I have grown as both a person and an artist by doing so.
An integral part of Open Window Studio is my collaboration with ceramic artist, Sue Allman. In 2005 we co-founded Open Hands Art. It began as a summer art camp and has now grown into a collaboration of after school art classes, all day art classes and adult classes. I have become especially interested in working with middle and high school students and have developed an art program specifically for this age group.
I have a BFA in photography(Rochester Institute of Technology,1981) and an MFA in painting/mixed media (Maryland Art Institute, 1991) and training in art therapy and counseling. You can see my artwork at www.pagezekonis.net.
