WHAT OUR STUDENTS ARE SAYING

Hagit Azoulay-Rozanes

Fantastic place, super professional workshops, and a great atmosphere, I love being there!

Clayton Moraga

A great place to take classes in printmaking, metal casting, blacksmithing and many other topics. They can also create custom team building events. All that along with the art show space and rental studios make this a very active place. Drop by and check them out!

Denis Sweeney

Great place for art classes or you can rent studio space. Metalsmithing, lithography, printing, printmaking, and lots more. Clean facility and friendly staff. Would definitely recommend.
