This year BCS brought back ROBOT WARS for Earth Week! After taking a short hiatus from the fun and interactive event, this year BCS brought it back with a bang!
BCS split up into teams of 4 (DANGER WARNING, Birds Of Prey, Rock The Cas-Bot, and Sugar Pie) to come up with a "robot" made from recycled materials from around the studio. Each team worked together all week to create the bot and came up with the function for what it does to help the environment.
To kick off the come back of this annual event we had some friends come in to judge the in-studio competition, as well as a new social media based Fan Fav category! Each Bot won one of 4 categories so everyone won something this year! However there can be only one Fan Fave and this year Birds Of Prey won racking up 33 votes online for the bot FAYE 321! Congratulations guys!
Follow us on facebook and instagram so you can vote next year!

This should go with out saying, however this season went off with out a hitch thank in giant part to our amazing staff! Thank you all to those who took the time to give up a day or two of your free-time to help introduce our Artists to the public. With out people like you all, who care so deeply about our Artists and what our studio stands for, we would not have been able to do any of this.

Imagine That! in Kansas City invited both Blank Canvas Studios and our sister studio Fine Line (located in Maryland Heights) to their First Friday art fair, Street Fest. A wonderful opportunity for us to showcase some of BCS Artists' best fiber art! From wall hangings to jewelry to hand pulled silkscreen tees to tie dye garments, there is something for everyone here. If you didn't get a chance to visit our booth, you can visit the Off the Wall Gallery to get your hands on some of this one-of-a-kind fiber art!
Artists in Residence Maria Vitale painted pots then planted cacti with the help of Hannah Satterwhite. Maria's love of bright colors comes through tremendously in these small pots and is accented perfectly with the perfect house plant! These cacti are easy to take care of and will brighten up any area of your home! Get one today at Off The Wall Art Gallery today!!
