The Art Garden has Open Studio hours, After-School Art Program hours, Open Enrollment Figure Drawing and classes, workshops and events for people of all ages. Hours and rates for specific classes and workshops are usually posted on the Home Page and/or Calendar.
Drop-in Open Studio Hours:
Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays & Saturdays: 1pm-5pm unless a program is going on.
During school vacations we often have other programming. During the summer we sometimes do events that take us out of The Art Garden.
Please call ahead.
During the school year, Tuesdays are reserved for our ARTeens program.
The Drop-in rate is a sliding scale of $5-$10 per hour.
Families and small groups receive a discount.
(Some additional days and times may be available upon request.)
Every 2nd and 4th Mondays of each month: 6-9pm. See Calendar for details.

Pre-paid Studio Time Cards:
The Studio Time Card is a way for members to pre-pay for use of drop-in Open Studio hours at a discounted rate. Our regular fee for drop-in open studio time is a sliding scale of $5-$10 per hour. With the Studio Time Card, individual members can purchase 12 hours for $50. Member families pay $50 for the first family member’s 12 hours and $25 for each additional family member’s 12 hours. Cards are kept at The Art Garden and hours are checked off as you use them. The idea is similar to a ‘bulk discount’, and is based on the hope that engaging in creative experiences at The Art Garden’s communal studio will become an important part of your life.
Memberships and donations made to The Art Garden will be acknowledged as charitable contributions for income tax purposes. Membership donations and other contributions can be made from our Donations page.
