The Story

Follow Your Art, LLC, a small community art studio, brought creative art experiences to the greater Melrose community for over 10 years, both through its home studio on Main Street and through community outreach beyond the studio walls. Owned and operated by Kris Rodolico, it ran successfully with a small but dedicated team of artists and community members. 

Fast forward 10 years…

Kris’ vision was for FYA to be a studio space that celebrates creativity and community. Over the years, as the studio mission grew and adapted to the interests and needs of the community, it felt more like a nonprofit community endeavor than a personal business. The time came to bring this vision to fruition. Work began to craft a mission, find a new space and even more community input.

Building Blocks with Colors

Follow Your Art Community Studios (FYACS) is a new nonprofit committed to building that creative community. How will this work?
