Students registered for general open studio time are able to use the studio designated for that day any time from 9am-4pm  ONLY on the days they are registered for open studio. For the time being, general open studio is only available on Fridays & Sundays.

The location of general open studio may change depending on which studios are available. Check in at the Registration Desk when you arrive to learn which studio is open. Please respect open studio hours, and allow ample time for clean-up.


Certification is not required for general open studio use.


Keep things clean! Clean studios are everyone’s responsibility, especially if you choose to work independently. Our students and faculty depend on a clean and organized space so that everyone can maximize their creative time.

Please help us keep our studios ready for the next student group by returning all equipment and tools to their designated places after use, and always wipe down and sweep work areas. Thank you!
