Grand Opening

We continue planning and working toward the Grand Opening of our studio in downtown Saline, MI on Thursday, July 15th.

We are excited to announce our first featured artist will be Hellen Bennett, a local watercolor artist. Hellen’s creative inspiration comes from her adventures in far-off destinations, as well as her surroundings in and around her “up North ” cabin. Helen takes pleasure in spending time in nature. Her work is inspired by the beauty of flora and fauna found in colorful and natural landscapes. Her beautiful, expressive watercolor paintings explore the visual elements of both representational and organic shapes, color, texture, and lighting. Meet and greet Hellen at the opening; her artwork will be exhibited and for sale at the studio.

We value unique, talented, and creative individuals and we hope our Featured Artist Program will provide both emerging and established artists a higher profile in their communities driving future sales for their business.


World Oceans Day

World Oceans Day seeks to inform the public about the impact of human activity on the ocean. In the past 30 years, more than 20 million bottle caps have been collected during beach cleaning activities. These caps degrade very slowly and are a danger to sea life who mistake them for food. Whitepine Studios offers workshops for young children that transform them into socially engaged artists. They learn the importance of conservation and use recycled materials to create unique works of art.

Homeschooling and the Arts

As a former educator, Whitepine’s Managing Director enjoyed the opportunity to homeschool her children for a few years. Her youngest was a budding artist. Art workshops offered to students outside their home was a wonderful resource and learning experience for her daughter who is now the Creative Director and co-owner of Whitepine Studios!

Whitepine Studios will offer children an opportunity to explore, experiment, collaborate and experience the visual arts by enrolling in studio workshops. Our goal is to provide your child with a quality art education.

For younger students, we adhere to process art that is child-directed and celebrates the experience of discovery. The final artwork is always unique and there is no outside the lines or inside the lines. Classes are organized by age groups with targeted goals for development in the visual arts. Content is developed to encourage creativity, problem solving and social skills. We seek to build confidence in a supportive and fun environment.
