The Studio Center: Where Classes, Parties and Clubs Gather to Create. / by Mary Jennings

I knew it the moment I walked onto the open front porch.  This was the spot!  I wanted to teach art right here.  And after many months of conversations, cleaning sessions and preparations, I am ready to introduce you, my good friends to a wonderful opportunity and destination.  

Location, Location , Location.

The location is in Falls Church, Virginia and it looks so warm and inviting and even has great parking.  It was a house for some great family quite some time ago and even has the plaque telling all who pass its a historic landmark.  When I first stepped in the door of this darling all white house, it was the main store front for The Front Porch, a furniture rescue company owned and operated by Dave and Joni.  I got to know the owners and witnessed their immense friendliness very soon after we met.  They waste no time in being the friendliest furniture folks in town.  We became fast friends.  I love what they do. I speak the language of furniture rescue too and would like to support them in any way I can.  

Joni’s vision for this location was clear once they moved The Front Porch to a bigger location just down the road.  She wanted to share her knowledge and great skills with Chalk and Milk paints, caning chairs, and breathing new life into some great little pieces of furniture. She has done this many times and thought The Studio Center would be a great place to focus on instruction.  She was kind enough to invite me into the share the experience.

The Studio Center Mission Statement: Providing creative space for creative instruction.  A place where ideas have worth and rescue is without limit.

A great review for Joni on Yelp.
