It is also rapidly expanding in use among the younger demographic. Do you use Instagram to promote your work? Do you know how to gain new fans and make new connections?

Now is your chance to learn to use this amazing and versitile platform.

Originally conceived at our home, Eleazar Delgado Studio has always been the artist’s creative space. The idea grew into a gathering place for our friends, mostly artists in their own rights, to showcase their current work and preview concepts. We made it official in 2010 when we opened a public space in Wynwood. Today in addition to being Eleazar’s personal art studio, we host local talents and leaders who need a professional environment to showcase, educate, and enrich the community at large.
