Studio Hope - Renal Support Network -Lori Hartwell

RSN’s Studio Hope was created with the vision of helping people express their creativity, make new friends, learn something new, share knowledge, lend a listening ear, teach a skill-set, take risks, encourage each other, have fun and enjoy the moment.

Studio Hope is a place for the community of artists, teachers, and crafters to share their talents. Education and arts & crafts are a big part of healing. We hope you join us to celebrate our new adventures in creativity and connecting. I hope to see you there. – Lori Hartwell, RSN Founder and President
