A Few Studio Uses...
Lockout Studios is your space to create. All studios are padded for sound so you can be yourself and do what inspires you at any volume or get focused and keep the noise out. Studio use is up to you (but you can’t live here, ok). Here’s a few of the most common ways creative folks are using Lockout Studios now.
FINE ART STUDIO
Paint ’til your clocks start melting
If you do some of your best work in the wee hours of the AM when the rest of the world is asleep, don’t worry about waking your roommates again — rent a Lockout Studio. We have various sizes available and some rooms feature windows (for those of you who work in the daylight as well).
Let me take your photo
Bring in your clients at whatever hour is good for them! You can build your own photography studio here for glamour shots, headshots, fashion and editorial shoots. (And there’s probably some bands and artists in the building who could use some good photos too.)
Show ‘em what you’re made of
Whether you’re looking to do a dress rehearsal, shoot a video or showcase your work for some important people, you can do with comfort and style in a showcase room. Configure your room for whatever type of setup you prefer.
Searching for the perfect beat
Work on your latest productions or some new ideas anytime of day or night. It’s your space — you have the key. Come in and work on your project when inspiration hits — or pull a marathon session for days on end.
Better than mom’s garage
If mom or the neighbors say you’re too loud, or you’re a professional group trying to polish up your songs before hitting the recording studio, Lockout Studios is your space. Once you’ve got the spot, get everybody together any time and don’t worry about anyone complaining.
CREATIVE OFFICE SPACE
If you could rent this space… that would be great
Even if you you don’t wear a tie or clock in at 8:00am you still need some space to get things done. Avoid the commuting rush — your neighbors are going to be way cooler here (and no one cares about your shorts or sneakers.)
My name is Gillian Draft and I am an Abstract Artist.
Art to me is a way to express without rules, boundaries, or limitations. In a society of supposed to be’s and should’s, it is a positive way to break those molds we have created and open up new ways of learning and thinking.
Although I started late in life, only a few years ago at the age of 34, it has become a childlike passion that I cannot give up. Because of the benefits of pushing through fears and letting myself be me, I have sacrificed time, money, jobs, and salaries… with no regrets.
It is incredibly fulfilling to finish a piece… to be able to take things from dumpsters and street corners, things that we consider trash, and make them into beautiful inspiring works of art. It is more fulfilling when I get to chat with people, and see their excitement or hear how they have been inspired by my paintings.
Originally, I started painting for myself, as a therapy of sorts, to work through the deep emotions from my past buried inside me and scars of my self defeat and bad decisions. I got to know myself and learned to accept and love ME. As I progressed, I saw how much people were drawn to my art, I realized the impact I could have on the world around me, and I began to paint to inspire others. I want people to delve deep, to not give up on their passions, and to break free from the should be life we have allowed to keep us numbed out, complacent and hopeless.
Art is an important way to not only love ourselves, but each other. It creates positive conversations, situations, and amazing energy within our everyday interactions with one another. We need that. Our children need that to create humility, self awareness and to stay grateful for this life that we have been given.
