More To The Story with Staley: Good Works Art And Social

Dave finds the new studio coming to Red Bank mixes it up a bit

RED BANK, Tennessee (WDEF) – It’s a little shop about to open in early June. On Dayton Boulevard in Red Bank.

But “Good Works Art And Social” is a little different than most. Because at this place, you can not only paint….and do the things that one generally thinks of when talking about an art studio….but you can also work with wood. Drills, sanders, hammers.

Bottom line: most studios do one or the other. Here, you can work with a canvas AND experience a little “do it yourself” wood.
Courtney Workman is the owner.

“This has been a dream of mine. I was making art before I could talk. I believe that everybody has artistic ability. My hope is that everybody can come in as you are and experience something great.”

Courtney is an Art Teacher at Red Bank Elementary. Her husband Cody is in administration at a local nursing facility. She’s the artist. He’s the wood working guy!

Put it all together, and you have a young couple venturing into their own business. Cody says there’s no better time than right now.

“I don’t think of it as being scary. I like to take risks in life. I would rather give it my all right now, than to be ten years down the road and say ‘I wish I did that.’ Life is short. I want to make the most of it.”

The business will open on June the 4th. An open house was held this past weekend, so folks could stop by and check out the scene.
And when it comes to combining art and wood work, Cody Workman believes Red Bank is the perfect place to crank up a new challenge!

“We like having our art business here and essentially helping create an art district. Red Bank is home for us. We’re here to stay!”
