Stepping Stones Studio is a community interest company set up and driven to promote aspiring and established artists in Kent.
Our vision is to encourage and enable visual artists by providing:
An affordable studio space in which to create work, and attend/ hold your own workshops
A cafe in which to connect and collaborate with other artists
A gallery and shop to showcase the range of emerging talents
A subscription to the studio granting incredible opportunities and discounts
Our space will stay affordable for artists and – unlike most studios and galleries – will favour applications from those without previous exhibition credidentials. The aim is to keep the studio neutral, to play host to a variety of artistic groups in this area, and to showcase under-represented artists. Through our central location and overarching love of visual arts, we aim to create a centre of art activity for the artists and art enthusiasts of the Maidstone and wider Kent district.
This opportunity offers a professional enviroment in which to gain indispensible experience in the oragnisation and publicity of ones own exhibtions, and brings our local artists together as a collective.
The studio encourages artists to hold their own classes, workshops and open studios for the public;
This unique artist’s venture is run by artists, for artists, and the only space in this area promoting local untapped talent through a collaborative voluntary effort.
