Art Island Studio is dedicated to the pursuit of artistic practice, dialogue, and discovery on Naoshima. The Studio offers workshops and classes, provides studio space to visiting and local professional artists, and hosts exhibitions and events throughout the year.
The studio is community-focused, offering a venue for local engagement with the arts that is otherwise lacking on Naoshima. Visitors to Naoshima are also welcome to participate in many of the Studio's programs.
The Art Island Studio's programs for children allow for free exploration of material and media. Rather than offering formal lessons, the studio encourages individual creativity: No two kids make art in the same way.
Programs for Adults
The Studio hosts classes and events for adults and older teens, ranging from craft workshops and painting sessions to public lectures, film screenings, and art discussions in Japanese and English.
