WHO WE ARE

About Us

Old Town Artisan Studios is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that provides a warm and inviting place where people of all ages can reveal their creativity. We offer instruction and classes in clay, fused glass, painting, drawing, and other art mediums. Independent studio use, along with individual private instruction and classes for children, adults, and seniors, are all blended with fee-exempt instruction offered to our local residents in need. We work with numerous local organizations to serve our communities.  

Our Mission

Old Town Artisan Studios is committed to providing positive art experiences for all people despite age, disability, or financial condition. We believe art is healing and has an everlasting positive impact on each of us and the world around us.

We continue to fulfill our mission through charitable donations from our cities, foundations and corporations, as well as our generous donors, board members, volunteers and staff members. 

Our Goal

With increased studio classes helping to fund the Outreach Program, our unique Mobile Art Van allows us to partner with local schools, senior centers, and a wide variety of non-profits, to provide over 19,000 art experience per year! Our goal is to expand our service and ensure we continue to bring art experiences to our friends who need it most.
