Parsons-Bruce Open Art Studio


Since PBAA Open Art Studio started in 2016, we have met many interesting people in the community and surrounding counties.  During COVID, we met virtually and grew a new audience.  Parsons-Bruce soon started a partnership with the local YMCA and Margaret Covington continues to volunteer to teach active older adults drawing or watercolor classes once a month.  These classes have helped PBAA Open Art Studio Grow.  It is a true joy to be a part of the community.  The core group has grown from 2 people, Kay Lewis and Margaret Covington, to a group of 7 people.  They make it possible for this group to continue and for them we are grateful.

Parsons-Bruce Open Art Studio is open to anyone on Tuesdays at 12:30pm - 2:30pm at St. Johns Episcopal Church in Halifax, VA.  The studio is open to anyone in the community free of charge.  There will be small fees for special workshops.  Anyone attending will bring their own supplies.  Those interested in attending should contact Margaret Covington by Facebook, Messenger (Margaret Skinner Covington), Text (434.572.0547 or email at
