Driving directions and map to the Studio
FOR STUDENTS COMING TO THE STUDIO FOR CLASS
DO NOT put my studio address in Google or GPS. It will get you very, very lost.
The construction around my building makes parking challenging. If you want to park close to the building you must use the "back way" (see #2 below). Your name will be with the guard. If you don't have much to carry, or it's your first time coming to the studio, you may want to park at The Storehouse, see #1 below.
You can access my studio in two ways:
1. FROM THE STOREHOUSE COFFEESHOP: Requires walking ABOUT A BLOCK
Follow these directions to The Storehouse Coffeeshop Directions to The Storehouse Park on the road or in the parking lot at the Storehouse. Use the walkway to access my building. The door code is 0-1-0-1-#. Wait for the green light. This is useful if you don't have a lot of art materials to carry.
2. The "back way" TO THE STUDIO: YOU CAN PARK RIGHT BY THE BUILDING
DO NOT use GPS for my studio address. It will get you very, very lost.
You must go to the Crisp Road Gate by way of Palou Avenue.
Getting to the Crisp Road Gate: Use these directions to get to the Crisp Road Gate. You can "Get Directions" to that location on Maps. Once there you will see an "Eclectic Cookery" sign on the fence and a little guard station, with a guard. Tell the guard you have a class with Tesia Blackburn in Building 101. Most will wave you through, but if not, call me at 415-999-1565, put me on the phone with the guard and I can usually get you in. If not, I'll come meet you.
Getting to my studio from the Crisp Road Gate: When you get past the guard, proceed up Crisp Road .5 mile to the first stop sign; angle left onto Spear Avenue. Continue on Spear about .25 mile to another stop sign at Fisher. Take a slight left onto Fisher. Continue on Fisher about .25 mile to a stop sign. Take a left and then an immediate hard left into the parking lot. Continue behind the building to the second bay of studios. Look for a sign that says "Tesia's Studio" park near there. Watch a video of the drive to my studio.
Back door code and entrance: Look for a sign directing you to the back door of the building. The door code is 0-1-0-1-# wait for the green light.
My studio is upstairs to the right. Go in the back door and up the small stairs. Make a hard left and go up the main staircase. My studio is upstairs. Turn left at the top of the stairs and then take your first right. I'm at the end of the hall. Look for the bright pink and red signs with my name.
