Art Studio & Classroom Rentals

The exterior of a rustic barn turned artist studiosThe museum has artists working in nine studios.  With high ceilings, large windows, free parking and 24-hour access, these studios are perfect for artists working in any style or with any medium.

We currently have two studios available (photos below).   Applying to rent a studio is a competitive process as we have more applicants than available studios. Please complete this online application form and someone will be in touch to arrange for an in-person meeting.

We also have a large classroom available for artists who teach.  If you would like to rent a classroom for a one-time class or an on-going workshop, please contact Phillip Downie.

We strive to have a variety of arts represented by our resident artists.  When we have available studios, our preference is to rent to an artist who works in a medium that is not represented by the current residents artists.  Preference is also given to teaching artists.

There are many benefits to being a resident artist, including:

  • 24-hour access
  • Being part of the museum’s publicity
  • Increased visibility through foot traffic and online exposure
  • Opportunities to learn from and collaborate with other artists
  • Consignment opportunities in the museum shop and opportunities to participate in Resident Artists-only exhibits and gift shows
  • Workshop and class space
  • Opportunities to teach classes
  • Free wireless internet and the use of office equipment

Please e-mail us or call 301-774-0022 for more information about renting a studio.
