Diana Rose Studio is a south corvallis neighborhood art studio inspiring artists of all ages to find their creative voice and building community through studio classes, special events, workshops and art shows.  

 About Diana:  "I fell in love with ceramics in 2002 while studying at the University of Oregon. I ended up staying an extra year of my college career in the ceramics studio learning how to make my own glazes and fire kilns, graduating in 2006 with a BA in Ceramics and Environmental Studies. During the summer of 2007, I participated in a clay workshop at Anderson Ranch in Snowmass, Colorado to further my ceramic work. My post college years have been spent inspiring others through teaching art and am constantly being inspired by my students as well. I have spent the past 10 years teaching classes to all ages in the local community through many venues including the Corvallis Arts Center, OSU Craft Center, Cornerstone Inc, Jackson St Youth Shelter, and the Corvallis, Philomath and Albany School Districts. In 2012, I  participated in the First Annual South Corvallis Art Walk, a neighborhood event that supports local art and builds community. In the subsequent years I have organized and expanded the event, connecting with other art studios in the neighborhood and promoting South Corvallis Artists. In 2014, I started opening up my personal home studio for private classes. I have since been expanding class offerings and holding workshops at the studio in addition to facilitating the South Corvallis Art Walk. In 2016 I joined the Voices Gallery which has given me great motivation to pursue new personal work, connected me with some amazing local artists and unfolded new opportunities to show my work and participate in public art projects. I am always looking for new ways to challenge myself and push my work forward. In 2016 my husband and I began designing a backyard studio to allow me to expand class offerings, host events and advance my own studio work. The new studio was move-in ready in January 2018 and I have since been teaching studio classes in the new space as well as expanding and developing my own pottery. It's amazing the impact that a dedicated creative space can have. I am so grateful that I have followed my dream and found a wonderful place within my community. I truly love what I do!”
