A handful of storefronts in Old Town Greenwood are dark and empty, devoid of activity.
But artist Teresa Taylor sees potential in the vacant spaces. She envisions a communal art space where she could teach painting, drawing and other art techniques.
Visiting instructors could offer classes on ceramics, sculpting, sewing, cake decorating, jewelry-making, photography, yoga, or any other creative outlet.
An artisan market would give her students and other local artists a place to display and sell their work.
Taylor has a dream of starting the Artisan Marketplace and Studio.
