Open Studio


Saturdays 10:00 am-5:00 pm Starting September 29th to December 8th, 2018 Closed until January 26th, 2019

*Open Studio days coincide with the course schedule, and take hiatus between each course session. The studios are closed to the public throughout July and August for our Summer Residency Program.

Who Can Use Studios

We provide Open Studio Saturday as an opportunity for people with experience and capability to work independently in the studios. It is also an option for students enrolled in our courses to gain more experience in the medium they are learning. For people using the studios for the first time, they must prove competency in technical ability, safety understanding and training in the studio that they would like to use.

Forms can be filled the morning of Open Studio Saturday in ceramics and metal. We reserve the right to restrict access to the studios if the staff assesses a safety or security risk. During Open Studio, there will be a technician available for questions and advice. Students currently enrolled in a class will get ONE free half day Open Studio Saturday per semester.
