Setting Up My Own Art Studio At Home--You Can, Too
August 24, 2021
It has always been a dream of mine to have an art studio at home. Maybe the other artists reading this would nod in unison. You know, a dedicated space where all my art materials are stored (or neatly scattered--is that even possible? But you get what I’m saying, right?). A place where I can leave them whenever I will call it a day and just resume working on the art pieces when I feel so. While it is true that you get inspiration and renewed interest from the different environments where you work, I just want a space I can call my own without having to pack and set up every time. And especially if you share the space with the rest of the family members living at home, this can be a hassle not only to you but also to others. So after deep thoughts and contemplation (and winning the argument against my dad who practically owns the garage space), I have finally converted the space into my art studio. You can say it was a sigh of relief to finally find my own space to unleash the creative juices that I have. But this is mixed with excitement and nervousness because I did not know how to start! Good thing my other artist friends walked me through the whole process so it can be easier and faster for me to achieve my dream art studio. First, I want to lay it down that I did not need to secure a building permit to renovate since I was not making a major renovation. The garage only needed a few tweaks to convert it into my art studio.
