Our Facilities and Membership Program

The Emergent Arts studio membership program supports artists by providing access to tools, equipment, and communal creative space. The program provides a space for artists to work adjacent to students and established artists similarly to an artist residency or fine art school environment. Members will benefit from flexible access to the facility, training in each studio process, and access to other working artists in the community.

The Membership Program

Artists may join the program at any time and will be granted access to each process studio after participating in mandatory trainings. Trainings will take place on a rotating schedule with one training taking place each month.

Membership fees are charged monthly with up-front payment discounts:  $30 a month, $150 for six months, or $250 per year. Scholarships may also be available for low-income artists wishing to participate. Email kara@emergentarts.org for more information and/or to sign up!
