Art Studio Space Available

I have an art studio at 835 17th Street #106 that is available for sharing. I'm looking for someone that needs a space to teach in or just to use for a studio. It is not used most mornings and I leave it empty from July - end of Oct. every year. I’d love to talk to someone that wants to share or use it part time.
