What Studio Everything and Rondell Crier Did:
The studio was created to be a place where the community, especially the young community, could come and release creative energy through various projects of their own choosing. Participants are encouraged to bring salvaged items and recycle them into a work of art. Rondell Crier acts as a guide for participants, offering inspiration and knowledge about the various tools he keeps in the studio. Participants often opt for long-term projects, and may continue to attend open hours each week to hone their craft and skills.
Workshops and holiday events were also held during Crier’s residency, such as Mother’s Day workshops and Halloween parties for children. Crier’s work and mentorship has directly influenced many of the youth in the area, and he has continued the work by securing grants to keep Studio Everything open.
