Open studio is a time and place to create at your own pace.
A group of member artists gather for open studio most Fridays at 10 a.m. in the Second Floor Gallery of the ArtWorks Center. All artists welcome for $5. Members free.
NEW! EXTENDED CLAY CAVERN OPEN STUDIO HOURS
We will be opening the clay cavern for open studio hours from 5PM-7PM the following dates:
June 4th, June 6th, June 11th, June 18th, July 2nd, July 11th, July 16th, July 18th, July 23rd, July 30th, August 1st, August 6th, August 8th.
The Open Studio is open ArtWorks Center business hours:
Tuesday - Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Saturday from 10a.m. to 3 p.m.
How it works:
Grab your favorite art supplies (paint, paper, canvas, etc. are all cool. Clay you'll grab from us; we like to keep our kiln healthy and to do that we need to control what goes in it.)
Drive, ride your bike, walk, or run to 300 N. Main St. (We have parking in the back as well as street parking.)
Open studio takes place downstairs in the Clay Cavern or the Second Floor Gallery, but you'll want to stop by our front desk to pay the $5 entry fee before heading down (unless you're an Austin Area Arts member, in which case open studio is free.*) Occasionally, one of the spaces will be closed for a private event. The folks at the desk can advise you on that.
If you want to throw on one of our wheels, you'll have to catch an orientation session. Contact us at 434-0934 to schedule.
Pick your favorite spot, set up, and get your art on!
If you'll be working on something other than clay, please bring your own materials with you.
Free for Austin Area Arts members
$5 for those who are not yet members*
Clay: $50 for a 25lb bag. Glaze and kiln fees are included in the cost of clay.
