Studio Tour… Experience art up close and personal


Watch for more info about the upcoming Spring 2019 Tour  May 4,5 and May 11,12.


Founded in the 1970s by a small group of Vashon artists, the Studio Tour has evolved into VIVA with some 300 member artists. Studio Tour is still an important bi-annual event and tradition that’s always held the first two weekends in May and December. Vashon’s creative spirit is steeped in rural and idyllic Island life. The Studio Tour includes paintings, photography, ceramics, jewelry, textiles, mosaic, glass, mixed media and more created by some of Vashon’s most accomplished artists.

Brochures with maps and studio descriptions are available at most Vashon Island businesses one month before tours open.
