Visual: Sev Shoon Arts Center

The center for the experienced and aspiring artists

A print making studio offering small sized classes and facility rental with 24/7 access. 

Sev Shoon Arts Center began in 1991, in response to the art community's need for a printmaking studio in Seattle. It is owned and operated by Dionne Haroutunian who came to Seattle from Switzerland in 1985. Inspired by the books she had read about the Impressionists and the Dadaists, Dionne had dreams of a community of artists who would meet in little cafes and reinvent the world! Sev Shoon is as close as she could get to that!

Drawing on her Armenian heritage, Dionne named the center "Sev Shoon " which translates as "Black Dog," the nickname of one of her favorite "adopted" uncles; she figured it would be good luck, and it has been.

By appointment only or visit us May thru October for second Saturday Ballard Art Walks.
